Advice from Ertheo

The England High-performance Summer Soccer camps are for young soccer players who are serious about improving their skills in a short period of time. Specifically, they are ideal for young athletes who thrive in a quiet and familiar environment where they can focus on their improvement as footballers and as people. Participants in these summer camps quickly begin to feel like a close-knit family - brothers who come from all over the world to improve their skills and share their passion for soccer.

If you’re interested in participating in an intensive soccer program this summer, the England High-performance Academy summer soccer camps could be a good option for you. Be sure to contact Ertheo for more information.

This camp is for you if

  • You’re interested in attending a full-time academy program at the England High-performance Academy.
  • You thrive in a close-knit family-like environment where staff members show interest in your personal growth and well-being.
  • You’re an international student with an intermediate/advanced level of English who wants to live and international experience and finetune your English.

This camp is NOT for you if

  • You don’t play at an advanced level or don’t have much soccer experience.
  • You have a low level of English. Training takes place entirely in English which means students must understand at least the basics.
  • Having fun is more important to you than your growth and improvement as a soccer player. The academy expects their students to be dedicated and disciplined.
