Has your son ever dreamed of experiencing the life of a professional footballer? Our training camp offers this unique experience with a team of highly sought after coaches to give each player a fantastic insight into the world of modern soccer.
The camp covers everything your son will need to improve their ability and take them to the next level:
- Strength and Conditioning
Who are we looking for?
We require a maximum of 20 boys of the U13/14s age group and maximum of 20 boys of the U15/16s age group. Ideally, these boys will have had experience of youth football coaching and are passionate about improving their abilities whilst show a willingness to learn from others.
We have kept the numbers of the camp to minimum so to provide a fantastic and realistic experience for each player involved.
This is a soccer camp like no other; train with focus, intensity and dedication in an environment that provides all the expert coaching to enhance the abilities and success of young athletes.

Our week long training programme includes the technical and physiological components of football.
What does the training camp consist of?
During the soccer camp the boys will specifically work on ball appreciation such as control and technique; how to defend and attack in individual and team situations; the positional aspects of the game and how to develop match play awareness.
Alongside training sessions on the football pitches, players will be introduced to the basic principles of strength and conditioning in Sussex Performance Centre. They will experience daily sessions based around developing their strength, speed, movement capabilities and mobility.
Off of the training ground and into the classroom – the players will understand the key elements of sport nutrition; how to prepare and recover from team sports. They will learn the value of a balanced nutrition plan and how it can have a huge impact on performance.
Alongside nutrition the players will explore the fundamentals of sport psychology and how mindset can influence performance both positively and negatively. They will analyse topics that can be used to improve their confidence on a football pitch and help build an often overlooked aspect of their game.

The cost of the week long training camp is £80. The camp will be held at Sussex Performance Centre and the grounds of Worthing College.
