Private Coaching Sessions PDF Print E-mail


Private and player specific development sessions are for players that want to improve and develop their techniques in receiving the ball, speed of foot movements, their general balance and co-ordination and the way in which they pass the ball with a creative dimension. The sessions are in 5 different formats and parents are asked to read through the information before deciding which type of session is best suited to the requirements of their child.


If you are aiming for your son to improve his balance, co-ordination and speed of his feet then the new BSC session will do just that.


BSC - Development Sessions

The Balance, speed and co-ordination sessions are devised by Rick Bell and have a complete focus on balance and co-ordination The sessions use hurdles, ladders, superdome cones, skipping ropes and a trampet to aid and assist the young players in their speed , balance and co-ordination. The sessions have taken 6 months to devise through study and research from top level coaches at Premier League Academy Clubs as well as National trampoline coaches. The sessions are very modern and if your looking for a session that your son has never tried before then the BSC development programme is an outstanding session to try.

  • 1 to 1 coaching and development - Rick Bell takes the private lessons personally. The private lessons have become very popular with young players. The 1 to 1 session provides the player with the opportunity of touching the ball between 400 -500 times per session. The 1 to 1 sessions focus on receiving the ball, passing the ball in a wide range of creative ways and being able to make intelligent passes over short distances. Rick looks after players at Everton, Liverpool, Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Manchester United, Rochdale, Morecambe, Oldham Athletic and Stockport County. If the 1 to 1 player specific sessions are for you then please feel free to contact Rick direct at A-Star Coaching. Their is a waiting list at present as the popularity of Rick's style of coaching is in demand at the moment. The waiting list for 1 to 1 sessions is 2 - 3 months.
  • 1 to 2 coaching and development - These sessions have 2 players working with 1 coach and are excellent as the players have 300 touches per session per player and work on technical drills that are used at premier league youth academies. The sessions are modern and challenging and most players that work in the 2 to 1 environment have never seen or performed some of the sessions that Rick puts on for the players.
  • Mini Group session of 4 players. The mini group sessions are also very popular and have a fantastic format. Players work on technical skills and have the opportunity to play 1 v 1 games, 2 v 2 games and overload games of 3 v 2 using the coach as the floating player. The mini group sessions are very fast and energetic and aid the development of the 1 v 1 situation and the 2 v 2 creative and imaginative play.
  • Player specific sessions. If your son is a defender, a midfield player, a wide player, a striker then the player specific sessions are fantastic for working on parts of a players game that need specific attention to detail Unlike the 1 to 1 session which has a special format for technical play with the football the player specific sessions are fantastic for defenders who want to work on their heading skills, strikers who want to work on their shooting skills and right backs who want to work on their left foot.

All the above sessions are modern, innovative, exciting, providing an intense and focused coaching and training session that you cannot get within a group session. Private and specific coaching for players is the most important format of developing and enhancing a players technique and is without question the best way to asses, solve and correct problems in a young players game. The players that are contracted at professional football clubs have been made aware as to the amount of contact time needed to progress and improve and have been encouraged to train away from their respective professional clubs to get up to the 10,000 hours that are advised when you become a signed player. If you need advice about your sons football then Rick will only be happy to provide that advice as well.

Rick has been performing private coaching sessions for over 8 years and has produced in excess of 600 young children into professional football clubs using his styles and methods of coaching. It is a style that has been developed in the past 12 months to help develop elite level young players into more technically gifted players with a greater reaction in the movement of their feet.
