The coaches at the Saltland City Football Academy welcome all children. They are absolutely football-mad, professionally trained and have many years of experience with children to their name. Each child is invited to show the SCFA coaches what he or she can do. Each new coach undergoes an intensive induction period over the course of several weeks, which is how we can guarantee your child will be optimally developed by SCFA. And there is more to them than just the SCFA name – each of our staff is brimming with passion and real love for what they do.
