High performance football camp in England available all year round

The international football academy in England offers a football programme for young people from 16 to 21 years of age. This training programme lasts between 1 and 6 weeks and is available all year round. This academy is located in the picturesque town of Stamford, two hours north of London.

Coaching

The short programmes at the football academy in England offer a complete coaching programme which combines technical training at the camp with matches played with teams from outside the camp and work on strengthening and conditioning in the gym.

Coaching comprises a total of 25 hours per week from Monday to Saturday, delivered in morning and afternoon sessions.

All trainers have the UEFA “A” coaching qualification and a number of them are also specialists in goalkeeper training, therefore participants who play in goal will receive a number of sessions throughout the week to perfect the particular skills needed in that position.

Players will have the opportunity to put into practice all they have learned in friendly matches which they will play against teams from leagues or schools in the local area. They will be observed during these matches and receive feedback to help them work on improving their skills.

Players will also take part in special sessions where they will receive expert advice regarding preparation, physical fitness training and nutrition, enabling the young footballers to learn how to take the best care of themselves, develop healthy lifestyle habits and thus maximise their sporting performance.
