You guys have been talking and giving us a good reason to be proud of what we do at On The Ball.
Although we didn't want to use this page as an opportunity to sing our own praises, after receiving so many kind words about our team it seemed only right to share your views with everyone else. If you want to leave a comment about your child's session please fill out the form on this page.
"Our son has Autism and we were concerned that, while he is doing well in a mainstream school, he does need additional support and explanation that we didn't think would be possible in a busy coaching environment. From the first moment we arrived at the coaching to the very end, every single member of the OTB team were warm, happy and encouraging, took time to speak to Jack, and after learning of his diagnosis (but that was it) he wasn't singled out as having additional needs at all, but was often given extra words of encouragement, a little piece of advice here, shown something visually there... I sat on the sidelines and saw the excellent staff give all the kids a great time, teach them all sportsmanship and skills, and saw Jack enjoy every minute. Don't know who is happier or more excited - actually it's Jack, its all he has talked about all week. Thanks guys."
"Very impressed with the whole set up, the coaching methods and styles used and discipline that is installed is very original and brilliantly executed. The only negative is that couple of the coaches support Derby County!"
" If you think wind and rain will put a damper on your outdoors football party - with On The Ball there to run it nothing stops the FUN. Games, competition, childcare, everyone happy and entertained, you can cross it all off your list whilst you stand dry under the gazebo (if you managed to put it up that is)! We (parents) as well as our kids are such big fan of On The Ball's football sessions, and was NOT let down by their amazing party skills too! Want one happy birthday boy!?! You know who to call!"
"We love the coaching at On The Ball! Both my son and daughter have thoroughly enjoyed their time there. Neither are particularly looking to be amazing footballers, but they enjoy learning and having fun. They are in a safe environment with friends their own age without the sense of beating or competing. Great discipline, coordination and observational skills :) We LOVE it and so thankful my kids could be apart of it. The coaches have such a talent with teaching young children. it is certainly a highlight in our week!! Thank you!!"
"I MUST give these guys 5 stars! Logan was very young when he first started and the guys treated him just like the other boys and now he is doing great. The games they play in training are brilliant and Logan enjoys giving them a try. The holiday courses are great and even my girls (who are 10 & 12) loved them. Coach Harry is great with the kids and really get the best from them in each session. My girls are gutted they cant come on a regular basis with these guys, Logan looks forward to it every week. The only negative i can think of is...... Once a week is NOT enough!"
"I took my young cousin and his friend along to one of the Easter Holiday Camp sessions and they absolutely loved it. My cousin is really into football and loved the wide varieties of activities the coaches offered. His friend, who is not a big football fan, was delighted with all the bravery and skill points he got during the day! I was really impressed with the way the coaches accommodated the different ability of all the children involved in the session. Both are keen to return for the summer camps. Keep up the excellent work lads."
"Our boys LOVES all the fun, the skills, games and competitions with the weekly OTB training sessions and the holiday clubs. Their love for football is greatly nourished by the enthusiasm and guidance from some great role models. Every session is run with great skill, imagination and enthusiasm."
