For the 12th successive year we offer boys aged 8-17 an insight into the life of a professional footballer through the technical and tactical training methods of champions and building confidence through communication in English. The course is split evenly between language learning and soccer training.
Young players around the world dream of being footballing heroes playing for world class teams like Chelsea FC. The Chelsea FC coaches’ goal is to make the dream a closer reality by enhancing students’ football skills, playing practice matches, personal discipline methods, teamwork and seminars in which Chelsea’s secrets for success are shared.
For two 90 minute sessions each day, students will work through various dynamic and static warm-up and cool-down routines and experience individual and group technical practices to develop their first touch, passing and shooting ability. Students will also receive tactical information and feedback to improve their game understanding, play matches (various field positions) and learn aspects of goalkeeping and develop their teamwork skills. All classes are also dedicated to promoting the Chelsea Foundation’s values of fair play, respect and discipline as well as encouraging team play and developing social skills.
The coaching programme is delivered by trained, FA/UEFA qualified coaches using the Chelsea FC Foundation Soccer Schools model. The Chelsea Foundation’s dedicated coaches are “fit for purpose” and hold valid DBS, FA Coaching, Safeguarding Children and First Aid certificates to ensure the highest levels of coaching and safety.
I like everything about the summer school, especially the football and English.
