Football coaching in Leighton Buzzard

Lions NXT Football Academy is dedicated to developing skilful, technical football players through innovative and rounded training methodologies. Developed from years of experience our team will empower your child to continually push the boundaries of their footballing capabilities. With a primary focus on futsal and skill-based coaching, your child will be exposed to week-on-week honing of these techniques, and over time, becoming a master of controlling the football.



We welcome children of all ages, boys and girls, no matter their starting point, or experience to date. Whether your child is just starting out on their footballing journey or pushing their abilities to burst into the pre-academy system, we’ll be sure to nurture each individual according to their needs.


We operate a number of different classes depending on ability and age. We also offer girls-only sessions for those who’d prefer to play surrounded by like-minded peers.


Mastering control of the football

Futsal, a modified version of football played on a smaller pitch size typically with a smooth sports surface, serves as an excellent platform for allowing children to master control of the football in a controlled environment. Lions NXT Generation Football Academy utilises the benefits of futsal and combines it with structured drills. We emphasise the need for keeping training varied and fun, whilst also ensuring repetition in the core motor skills are integrated seamlessly. Working in smaller space encourages close ball control, quick decision-making, and teamwork, providing an ideal setting for children to develop their football skills.
