Get to Know Us

combining football &  Mental Skills

HeadStart connects football training with mental skills training through on-field and online sessions which develops players:

• Footballing Ability & Performance

• Mental Toughness

• Overall Well-Being

more than just training

a note from francis de vries


I believe that football is more than just "kicking a ball well".


That's why I created HeadStart. To give you a chance to go beyond normal training, using football as a vehicle to develop skills for life.

HeadStart does this by incorporating the development of the entire person into its training program.

If you believe in the same thing as me this is a great opportunity for you. Click below to apply


Spaces are limited so that:

  • I can personally deliver each session to ensure the highest quality of training

  • I can work directly with each player & parents involved
