My son is 3 years old and loves playing football with Damien and the other coaches at Atletico Las Capas. He wakes up every day and asks is it football today?...
...It has given him confidence and enabled him to make friends with lots of children around the same age. The coaches are amazing with the kids and we couldn't be happier with our choice of club, so much so our daughter is now playing for 7 to 8 year old team and loves it too. (May 2012)
My 2 boys play for the 7 to 8 year old and 9 to 10 year old age group. They have been with Damien for nearly 2 years before he formed the club and enjoy his training sessions immensely...
...The younger boy is quite shy and this has given him so much confidence. The older boy loves his football and is now helping with the younger group giving him a sense of responsibility. The club encourages parental involvement and this means that this is a real family club where we have made great new friends. (May 2012)
My son is 13 years old and was never really able to attend after school activities due to my work schedule. Damien and his coaches have made a real effort to ensure that he is able to get to training sessions...
...by picking him up and dropping him home. It has finally given him an interest away from school. He is so happy and I have never seen him jump out of bed so fast on a Saturday. He also helps with the younger children, this has given him confidence and a sense of responsibility that I am very grateful for.
He has fun, is learning a new skill and getting fit. I recommend Atletico Las Chapas as a community club, where your child is safe and well looked after. (May 2012)
