Coach

Sean Bereton

Hi, my name’s Sean, I’m from Wiltshire, England, I’ve played football since I was 4 and support Newcastle United. I enjoy cooking (and eating), live music and when in Bahrain I spend a lot of time at the beach. I studied Events Management at University and would love to see some more sports events in this country. 

7 years coaching experience at grassroots clubs in England and academy coaching here in Bahrain, I believe more can be done to improve the young players’ experience. I’ve studied with the England and Wales FA’s as well as with Spanish Academy TOVO, their methodology is heavily influenced by Johan Cruyff.

THE ACADEMY

We offer an inclusive and supportive environment to bring out the best in every child. We have 3 main options to choose from and you can pick one, or choose to try all 3. Contact us and we’ll help you choose the best option for you.

➊  PRIVATE 1-1 & SMALL GROUP SESSIONS

If reaching maximum potential in football is your focus, then our 1on1/Small group sessions are the perfect fit for you. They are detailed, focused sessions where the coach gives you feedback to correct your technique where needed and allow you to improve. There will be a mix of Speed, Agility, Quickness (SAQs) drills matched with position specific technical and tactical stations to develop your game.

“Success has to do with deliberate practice. Practice must be focused, determined and in an environment where there’s feedback” – Malcolm Gladwell, author of five New York Times bestsellers

➋  GROUP CLASSES

Our fun packed group sessions are designed to develop players holistically and in line with modern coaching methods. A safe enjoyable atmosphere is key to the sustained long term development of the young people in our care.

With influence from all over Europe including the UK, Spain, and Croatia, our UEFA qualified coaches develop our players around a four-corner model. Our aim is to create players with Cognition, Competence and Character.

We have two sessions available per age group each week, running currently on Sun, Mon and Thursday so please reach out now to get booked in.

➌  3V3 GAME TIME

3v3 tournaments. These are extra sessions which are separate to your usual academy or club session, where players are placed in teams of 3 each week and left to play. This creates a free and positive environment, where the children play with the freedom needed to express themselves, and use their skills in a real playing environment.

Sessions are designed to get all players more touches of the ball and therefore more decisions to make, more dribbles/passes/tackles and hopefully everyone’s favourite… More goals.

Below is the summary of a pilot scheme by Manchester United, highlighting the obvious rise in opportunities to practice individual skills and techniques.

On average 4v4 versus 8v8 had:

  1. 135% more passes
  2. 260% more scoring attempts
  3. 500% more goals scored
  4. 225% more 1v1 encounters
  5. 280% more dribbling skills (tricks)

SUPPORTING THE COMMUMITY

OUR EVENTS

Stay tuned for our upcoming community events or get in touch to plan your next party or competition. No event is too big or too small. Football For All.

☆ TOURNAMENTS ☆

We hold competitive football tournaments for children, split into specific age groups. 24N invite academies, schools, and clubs to play in their age group tournaments. For us, this is a huge part of how we would like to add value to the football community in Bahrain.

Our tournaments are designed to be inclusive, so that everyone gets lots of games and not just the best teams. Teams will play other teams of the same level and enjoy the opportunity to face opponents they may not normally play against.

☆ FOOTBALL FESTIVALS ☆

These are all about fun and Football for All. These would usually take place with our younger age groups. There are no winners, no losers – just a chance for the kids to enjoy their day. We will have matches for teams, as well as individual competitions to test your football skills. There will also be music, artists, entertainers and more, to make it a day out for the whole family.

☆ BIRTHDAY PARTY’S ☆

An unmatched sports birthday experience. We work with you to co-design your perfect party – and then deliver the best day.

We offer a range of party options, dependent on what you would like, with Platinum, Gold and Silver Party Packages available.
