K4S was formed in 1999 by Keith Levett UEFA B (MA) coach and Matt Doran UEFA B coach. Keith Levett and Matt Doran were both working in distinguished preparatory schools in south and west London. The K4S founders gained valuable experience over the years working as Physical Education teachers, Key Coaches on Chelsea Residential Soccer Camps, Fulham FC Development Centres and Crystal Palace FC Academy Programs.
The K4S founders both come from professional sporting backgrounds; both as youth and senior professionals, competing in Football, Cricket and Tennis.
K4S has developed its own coaching philosophy following fifteen years of experience coaching in both Europe and America. Together Matt and Keith have combined their knowledge and applied the best models from their extensive research to create technical coaching models for sports and exercise specific programs.
K4S continues to evolve just like the players we teach, striving for excellence in delivery, constantly evolving with the times and keeping ahead of the game. We are always ready to embrace new ideas as we evolve with the best teaching methods.
Over the years K4S has built successful programs across London, The south east and Kent. Keith is now joint head of the Crystal Palace Foundation Academy alongside Rob Quinn (ex international Footballer and Crystal Palace player), both of whom are still good friends and ambassadors of the K4S Program. Matt continues to develop K4S into the leading specialist coaching brand in London.
