Skillz Skool, Football Coaching was setup in December 2016, by Chris Balmer – current Manager of his sons team Silcox Villa JFC Under 9’s. After enjoying his new role so much he decided to setup a kids football coaching classes in his local area after not being able to find anything locally for his younger son (aged 2 at the time).
Chris grew up in Litherland and went to the local schools English Martyrs and St Wilfrids High School, Chris captained both these local schools football teams and went onto represent his district (Crosby & District).
With years of experience playing football, managing both adult and kids team and still playing himself every weekend for a local Sunday team after all those years – he’s finally decided to give his expertise back to the local community after taking his FA Coaching Badges and gaining the experience from running his current team.
Skillz Skill is backed by Silcox Villa JFC which is now in its 11th year of existence and with almost over 100+ young players registered, he hopes Skillz Skool will be a great stepping stone for the kids to join a local and well run team. We have already seen a massive improvement from the kids we have been teaching and some of them are already playing in a brand new Silcox U7’s team this year!
