Great facilities, very well organised, enthusiastic and highly skilled coaches have taught and nurtured our son's passion for football, fostering his individual skill levels, appreciation for team work and positional play.

Our boys look forward to the XLR8 Holiday Clinics with anticipation - action packed, fun filled days with the emphasis on player development and fun in equal measure. Football and interpersonal skills develop in partnership and we consider the camps to be a valuable part of their football education.

The only complaint is that it has to end each day!

Areas covered include:

  • First touch
  • Striking the ball (passing and shooting)
  • 1v1 (attacking and defending)
  • Agility/Coordination
  • Weak foot development
  • Decision Making and Awareness

APRIL HOLIDAY CLINICS

We will be running three XLR8 Small Group coaching clinics in the upcoming April school holidays. These sessions will only be available to representative level players or NSFA Diamond League/Super League players. If you meet this requirement, please use the enquiries link to find out more information and how to register.

TESTIMONIALS

Going to the first XLR8 session I didn't really know what to expect.  Dylan trains 3 nights a week as it is so I was curious what would be so different about these sessions.  As soon it started I knew this was something he had never done before.  There were only 4 boys in the group and the drills were things I have never seen him do before. One particular thing I liked was I could see that Nick (the coach) was constantly talking to the boys whilst doing the drills and giving them lots of instant feedback which you don't always necessarily get in a group training session.  The sessions ran for an hour and I was pleasantly surprised at how much they fit in to each session.  Dylan would get in to the car after each session tired but animated  and tell me how much he had enjoyed it and how he was going to be able to use what he had learnt.  I found the experience extremely worthwhile and would highly recommend it to any child at any level.

I am really enjoying the Women’s Skills Training sessions. The coach is fantastic and it’s great to be in an environment where I can learn some much needed new skills and get fit at the same time.

Tamara Isterling

I found it really inspiring to be coached by a dedicated, skilled and relatable female coach. In all my years playing I have never been coached by a woman and found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience.

TESTIMONIALS

I would like to extend my gratitude to XLR8 for such a wonderful first experience using their services.  My goalkeeping-mad son has had the pleasure of being taught by some highly-skilled goalkeepers (including a current Australian women’s goalkeeper) on a Monday night these last 9 weeks.

The whole XLR8 team have been a pleasure to deal with (including before I signed up for the course) they have been very approachable both before and after training which is great as a parent to get feedback.  The coaches have also mixed up the training sessions to make it fun and enjoyable as well as teaching them the skills they require to succeed at any level of goalkeeping they care to get to - my boy tells me all the way home how much he has enjoyed the session (and then how tired it has made him !).

Thanks XLR8, we will be seeing more of you soon and will be registering for the next term as soon as it becomes available.
