About Us

Elite Feet




Elite Feet's philosophy is simple - with a blend of some key factors and unique coaching methodology, as well as a large dose of common sense and enthusiasm for football, we can create the perfect environment where a child can learn and develop. We can do this irrespective of age, ability or experience. We're making football fun!

Elite Feet was started in January 2007 by FA Professional football coach and development scout, Daniel Larner. Daniel himself had experienced some fantastic times in football, and some not so fantastic times too… using his experience and ideas from several continents where football is played at any level, Elite Feet was created as a weekend football club. Having started with 5 children in 2007, to date Elite Feet Football Development works with up to 2000 players per week in the South East of England.

The ideoligies employed by the sessions EFFD and EFFC delivers are not only engaging, but also brave too! We teach children from 2 1/2 years old-16 years in an environment that promotes a can-do approach to sporting activity. It's one that promotes a healthy living lifestye, and most of all teaches a firm understadning of technical skills in an environment that children feel safe, confident and enthused by. Our children leave our sessions associating that football with fun… and that's the way we believe it should be. Currently we offer Weekly courses, After School Clubs, School Holiday sessions, PPA PE Cover, Football teams (Elite Feet FC), Just Play clubs and Birthday parties.

We're also working closely with our partners at Chelsea FC, providing players for their U8's development centres, as well as providing services for extended schools organisations in all of our working areas to ensure that children who would not normally get access to professional tuition from dedicated coaching professional get the opportunities they need. More recently, we were employed to provide coaching development courses to staff at the Chelsea Academy based in Cairo, Egypt. Keeping that sort of company, we must be doing a good job!

Guided by enthusiastic, dedicated, Professional FA Coaches, qualified teachers and pro-active parents – we understand the way children learn, and how football can be taught effectively. We enjoy coaching children. It is our exclusive profession. It is our chosen profession. Nobody Does It Better.
