The rise of Soccercise

Free CPD training event set to create more opportunities to get involved in football

The Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA hosted two Soccercise training events last month, providing attendees with the knowledge and expertise to deliver their own Soccercise sessions to clubs, communities and other groups across our region.

35 people across two sessions completed the free CPD training offering, gaining valuable experience in how to lead a safe, fun, and inclusive Soccercise session to a range of participants.

It is part of the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA commitment to create more opportunities for people to get involved in football ahead and beyond the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 this summer.


Soccercise is an instructor-led aerobic exercise or circuit class, typically lasting 45 – 60 mins in length. It can be delivered indoors or outdoors and combines a variety of fitness exercises with a football. The class is delivered to music and is based on repetitions of specific exercises (i.e., toe taps, squats, sit-ups).

Soccercise can help introduce people to the game, re-familiarise people that used to play, act as pre-season fitness or warm-up football training session.
