Pro-Future FC have a soccer
 school, under 8s, Under 9s, U10s U11s, U13s, U15s and U16s Teams

The club has worked extremely hard towards achieving FA Charter Standard status this season.

“We are trying to attract players who may have been released from academies, work with them and perhaps give them a second chance of getting back in to an academy team", explained John Hughes, "there are many football organisations to choose from, but Pro Future is unique, we teach the fundamentals of the game from a very early age and encourage the children to work things out, open the body up, twist and turn and make an effective decision on how they pass and receive the ball. Pro Future is a classroom with no roof and no walls ”

"Unlike Academies, we do not "release" players nor do we put them under any pressure to learn at a faster pace than they are capable of, Some old-school coaches just want steel and grit, but that alone will only take you so far", He adds, "Pro Future training will work on every single aspect of your game including the ability  to accept constructive criticism, which is a pre-requisite of the modern footballer"

The club trains at Oakhill Academy on Tuesdays 6-8pm, Fridays 6-8pm and Saturdays 9-11am, and for further details, contact John Hughes via the contact form or for urgent matters please call John on 07989 054013
