Watching others and analysing situations may improve skills too. Children wanting to enter football at a local league are able to do this by joining a team in the Medway News Youth League. There are many teams within the league that start at under eight's all the way to under eighteen's and example of this would be Spartac Football Club. There are several soccer schools that will teach young to play football but not at a competitive level.

Critically Evaluation On the whole it seems that males are the easiest to enter football and also to get to elite national levels of playing due to the availability of organised leagues and cups during school and leisure time.
