Kids football training sessions Stoke Gifford


Who we are

Progressive Soccer is a first-class kid’s football training school in Bristol. The session is led by Head Coach Antonio Nurse, who boasts a wealth of experience gained from coaching at both academy level with Bristol City F.C. and Centre of Excellence level with Lincoln City F.C. He understands first hand, what it takes to meet the standards of football at a professional level.


We run two variations of kid’s football training sessions. The first option is our ‘All-in Technical sessions’ which are designed for young players of all abilities to come together and develop their football skills. The coaches will offer constructive advice and support. The idea of this is to get the kids comfortable with the ball and interacting with others. The second option is one-on-one training. These private training classes are more suitable for children wanting to develop their football skills at a faster pace, having the undivided attention of one of our qualified coaches. If you would like to know more information about the different training options Progressive Soccer has to offer, then please view our sessions page.

My children love it. Antonio and Marcus are fantastic coaches, really patient and encouraging, my kids are quickly picking up skills and enjoy every minute of it. I can’t recommend them enough!!!

What we do

We are a children’s football training club in Bristol that offers both teaching and support for children with a passion for football. We do not take players away from clubs but rather work with local clubs to help develop the young talent.

Our academy offers children expertise in a multitude of areas:

  • FA Qualified Football tuition

  • FA Youth Award Football tuition

  • Sports Leaders UK Award in Community Sports Leadership

  • Active IQ Fitness Instructor’s Award

  • Nutritional Consultation

  • Bio-mechanical Consultation

  • FA Emergency First Aid

  • FA Safeguarding



Progressive Soccer is striving towards, laying the foundations for the beautiful game of the future. 

Far-flung from POMO merchants of a by-gone era, and a step ahead of the copy-cat generation of recent years, our focus is on coordination, technical ability and developing a thirst for practice and the fine-tuning of skills.

Whilst not everybody has the potential to be a Lionel Messi or Lucy Bronze, we do feel that, with the proper technical training and encouragement, every child can improve and succeed in the sport we all love. Our job is to help all the children in our football training group to improve their technique and confidence in order to become well-rounded players.

Our Children’s football training in Stoke Gifford is designed for the kids to develop their football skills, but also to ensure they have a good time playing a sport they are passionate about. Most boys and girls that start at Progressive Soccer do so at a young age, and therefore we like to teach them the importance of playing as part of a team. With this in mind, we remind them that we are not concerned about winning (though we do all love to get the better of our opponent every now and then). More at the centre of our interest is to see the children grow in confidence and ability.

Whilst in future they may go on to be coached in a way more in keeping with the pressures of winning points and trophies, the tuition offered at Progressive Soccer kids football training group, is more of a relaxed environment where the children have more of a chance to make mistakes and learn from them.

Kicking the Ball at Football Training in Bristol

Action plan

Our first objective for every player at our children’s football training in Bristol is to be able to receive the ball from a 360-degree range of angles at a multitude of speeds both in space and under pressure from defenders with the use of situation-scanning. The next step is then for them to use the tools and skills they have been taught to figure out what to do with the ball once it’s been controlled!

We provide young players with the best possible start to their football life, whether they dream of setting foot on the hallowed turf of Wembley Stadium or simply love to play the beautiful game with their friends, Progressive Soccer will help your child to maximise their potential.
