Javea Football by certified coach Rob Jones, 5 years to 13 years, boys and girls.
Rob Jones coaches youth football teams in Jávea all year round and has delivered some of his talented players onwards to football academies and the CD Javea Cadetes. However, the true strength isn’t the pure ambitious coaching, as one parent put it: “It is easy enough to make the best players in the team have a good time, but its a very special skill to make the clumsiest kid without a shed of talent have such a fantastic time they can´t wait to go back every day. And hey he might even learn to play football too one day but at least he has a super time with his new friends!”
Rob also holds Summer Football Camps - for more information call 662 958 607.
