About k50 Academy
K50 Academy was launched by me, James Robinson (Coach Jim) in late 2020…
…with one important goal in mind, to create the very best football coaching environment for every player regardless of age or ability. Installing and driving confidence in every young player is the cornerstone of what we believe in…………confidence drives performance drives success.
The foundations of K50 Academy began many (many) years ago when I discovered my love for football, hugely influenced by my dad Ken Robinson who spent his entire life dedicated to football, finding himself on the books of West Ham and Fulham playing under the late Sir Bobby Robson also representing England at school boy level. Ken was a well respected figure at the FA and spent his later years driving local grass roots football in addition to leading Womens football in Essex. Thank you Dad, I dedicate all K50 Academy sucess in memory of you.
My love for coaching started around 20 years ago when I found myself supporting then leading sessions within youth football for ages 6+, I took the decision to continue to play over the next 8 years at which point I had the opportunity to restart my coaching journey.
For the past 12 years, I have worked with a number of clubs and academys across Essex to support the development of my coaching. I have had the opportunity to work with early years players age 3+ through to Men’s and Women’s Semi Proffesional level. In 2018, following an increase in the number of request to work with players on a 121 basis, I launched my first venture, JR Football Coaching.
K50 Academy is working in partnership with Perry Street F.C and will be offering Saturday Soccer Coaching, Team Coaching, 121 sessions, Futsol, Goal Keeping Coaching and Holiday Camps designing unique training programmes for every member combining physical, social and communication skills. We aim to continue to exceed expectations for both player and parent during your time with us.
We choose to promote a pressure free environment where players are encouraged to use their imagination. We also beleive that making mistakes is an important aspect of every players development. We are commited to improving every player and ask for the same commitement in return.
“The only mistake that can be made, is the lack of desire to improve”
