How do I sign my child up?
Send an email to dpalmer
How do I make payment?
Please note that payment must be made in full prior to your child’s first official session.
We have a long waiting list, and non-payment will result in your child’s place being offerend to the next child on the list.
Where can I buy football kit?
We are still in the process of sourcing a new kit for the football schools, at this time there are numerous other sports shops in The Hague and Leiden that sell football clothes and boots.
What happens when it rains?
Football is played in most conditions, except for thunder and lightning, when the players will be taken off the field.
If there has been exceptionally cold (or freezing) conditions, the fields will be unplayable and we will advise you in advnace if a session needs to be cancelled.
We always recommend that players bring wet weather/warm clothing when attending sessions, especially in the cold months.
Visit the Total Football online shop to buy warm football gear at discounted prices.
What happens if a session is cancelled due to bad weather?
Should sessions be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances i.e. bad weather, coach illness etc? Generally we will add on minutes every session until the time lost is caught up. You may also be invited to attend one of the other groups either side of your group. Eg. Monday can join in a Tuesday session, Wednesday can join in a Thursday session etc.
What is needed to start playing?
Extra items such as gloves and hats are highly recommended on colder days.
A drink is mandatory.
What time does training start?
Where is training held?
Can my child play in the same group as his/her friend?
Some children do well with friends, whilst others are distracted. It is not beneficial to have two ability levels playing in the same group from a football learning point of view.
However, it can be beneficial from a social learning point of view. We try as often as we can to place friends together unless we feel that one of the points mentioned is affected, and then we will discuss it with the parents.
My child would like to play another sport or wants to play for a club, Can I get a refund?
We expect that parents who are paying for the programme will try their best to get their children to the sessions.
There is no refund for players who choose to play for a club or another sport that conflicts with Total Football Coaching training sessions.
What are shin pads?
They are worn under the football sock, preferably not over them.
It is recommended that shin pads also have ankle protectors on them from 5 to 10 years old.
Will my child be a professional footballer?
Commonly asked by Dad after his 5 year old son/daughter has had their first lesson!
And it’s impossible to answer at this age.
Generally though my answer is the same: children are here to learn and to enjoy themselves.
We will ensure that all players are challenged. Players do not develop fully, both physically and mentally until the age of 14.
