The team at Soccer Assist are great. Excellent sessions delivered by quality coaches at great venues. Communication at all levels is spot on (from events through to future opportunities and their programme).

From the first time I spoke to Soccer Assist, they have been friendly, informative and very welcoming to both me and our daughter. We were so excited after attending the open day and we couldn’t wait to enrol our daughter ready for September 2022. Since signing up, they have stayed in touch and already involved our daughter in football games and events.
