Who are we looking for?

We require a maximum of 32 boys aged 13, 14 or 15 years old. 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.

Who are the coaches?

Harry is a BSc Sport Scientist and Sussex University Men’s & Women’s Assistant Rugby Coach. Harry has a wealth of experience with youth athlete development and has insights into sports across multiple disciplines.

Our 3 day camp focuses on 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. They will conduct their football sessions at the Sussex FA Headquarters.

Alongside training sessions on the football pitches, players will be undertaking a number of fitness assessments which help to identify areas needing of improvement for the upcoming season. The players will gain experience of testing that is undertaken at professional football clubs around the world. They will be introduced to the basic principles of strength and conditioning and will experience daily sessions based around developing their strength, speed, movement capabilities and mobility.

All players will be provided with individualise feedback for the upcoming season.

What are the dates of the camp and how much does it cost?

The cost of the training camp is £75. The camp will be held at Sussex FA Headquarters in Lancing.
