WHAT WE DO

The SK Way is the SK culture - our philosophy, the reason we exist. It defines how we play the game, the way we act as players, coaches & parents and the partnerships that SK build. 

 

HOW WE DO IT

You can always recognise an SK group by the style of football we play with. From our very foundations through to our eldest age groups, our players and groups play The SK Way. We look at our playing style individually and collectively.

THE WAY IS TO PLAY

DOMINATE THE BALL WITH POSSESION PLAY AND RELENTLESS PRESSING
COMPOSED BUILD-UP THROUGH THE THREE THIRDS OF THE PITCH
COMPOSED BUILD-UP THROUGH THE THREE THIRDS OF THE PITCH
4 PHASE FOOTBALL:
CONSTRUCT, PREPARE, MAINTAIN, EXECUTE 
 
UNDERSTANDING WHEN AND HOW TO SLOW OR SPEED UP THE TEMPO
Excite with expression and fluidity, with freedom for risk taking and creativity
 

OUR PLAYERS

Individually SK players are comfortable playing with both feet, able to beat players with fast dribbling, composed when receiving the ball, dictate the tempo, and display exceptional decision making.

 

The absolute bare necessity for a footballer - and for success in life! Dedication is essential to SK, with coaches striving to personify it as role models to the players.

DEDICATION

OUR KEY VALUES

 

 Ambition can be measured in many ways: to sign for an academy or a club, to win trophies, or to be the best player in the team. Everyone has different goals, but striving to achieve those goals is important for all footballers.

AMBITION

 

It is what makes us great people. Success is no rarity at SK and our success is no accident, but being successful carries responsibility. There's no 'I' in 'team' and success isn't achieved by one person - so we recognise success with modesty.

HUMILITY

For each other, for our coaches, our parents, for match officials, for our opponents - for everyone. Respect comes as part of being humble and being good people, above all else.

With competitiveness comes the constant question: "how much do I want to do this?", and great players will do whatever it takes. The more you put into something, the more you get out. 

DETERMINATION

RESPECT

 
 
 

COMMUNITY CULTURE

We are a grassroots football organisations that doesn't run its own football league club. Playing for SK is like being part of a team, but we are proud that it doesn't impact on our local clubs. Instead, we have partner clubs - where all our team coaching and management is done.

 

Our firm belief is that junior clubs are the heart of their community. They represent places, families, history. Their heartbeat is the volunteers who make football possible for so many children and clubs give something for so many to be proud of.

For SK, all of our coaches have volunteered - and still do - with various junior clubs. We are commited to acting as an ally of junior clubs, rather than an enemy.
