How do I pay for ALFSS programs/ services?
There are two ways to pay for our programs. We accept E-mail Money Transfers or cash. In the near future we will be able to accept debit/ credit payments also.
What should my child wear/bring to sessions?
The sessions are all "non- contact", but still physical at times. All participants are encourage to bring cleats, shorts, a shirt, and mouth guards. No helmets, shoulder pads, etc. At times we ask that you bring pads, helmets, etc. to simulate real situations (i.e. blocking, block shedding)
What are your term dates?
Our program dates are mid- April to mid- June, mid- June to mid- August, and mid- January to mid- March. Each program is 24 sessions in length lasting approximately two hours eash time. However, we offer private sessions and mini- camps all through outnthe year. The dates of our special events will be posted on the site as they are confirmed.
Are your teachers qualified?
We have coaches/ tutors who are either qualified through training with leading local governing bodies of training/ teaching, and through a plethora of experiences that make them professionals in the industry.
Can we still join your programs after they have started?
An athlete may join the program at any time as long as there is space left in the group. We can pro- rate the fee, or make - up the missed sessions outside of group times to catch up to the group's pace.
Can parents watch?
We feel that parents are/ can be a big part of what we aim to do in terms of developing players, and they are always welcome to watch the sessions. We encourage parents to gain an understanding of their child's strength's and weakness' in order to help keep them focused on improvement on non- training days.
What is your ratio of players/children to coaches?
One of the issues we are tackiling with this program is the amount of genuine attention given to athletes during their practice times with their teams. Our ratio is never more than 1:12 (one coach to twelve players) in order to give each athlete the required attention to coach, assess, and correct them frequently each session.
