Arsenal Soccer Schools aim to encourage students to play ‘The Arsenal Way’. An unforgettable soccer camp experience for 9 to 17 year old boys is awaiting for you at 2 great sites in Southern England.This is the school that has produced a host of international players like Nicklas Bendtner (VfL Wolfsburg and Denmark ),Ashley Cole (Roma and England),Emmanuel Frimpong (Ufa and Ghana),Cesc Fàbregas (Chelsea and Spain) and many more.Arsenal Soccer Schools residential programmes have been running for 20 years and have given many boys and girls the opportunity, whatever their football ability, to live, learn and experience football coaching the Arsenal way.
Last year,twenty players from the Ligi Ndogo Planet team benefited from one week of training (2nd August to 8th )at the residential camp at Sparsholt College in Winchester, Hampshire.This year,Ligi Ndogo hopes to facilitate travel for talented young players from the East African countries of Kenya,Uganda,Tanzania,Rwanda and South Sudan.
Arsenal Soccer Schools program focuses on a wide range of skills, drills and tactics. Designed by an Arsenal Soccer Schools Head Coach, the programme aims to promote confidence and experience in a variety of different game situations. At the start of the week, students will be put into training groups based on age and ability. They will be given a coach each to get a sense of how real teams work, and will have the same coaches all week to build up a rapport.
We recommend the Academy Programme (Soccer only all day) only for students of 12 years and above due to the intensity and physical demands involved. All of the activities and coaching are conducted in English and the multinational environment means that students will primarily communicate in English throughout their stay. This offers a ‘total immersion’ experience and maximizes an individual’s opportunity to practice and gain confidence. Confidence is the key to success in any language and constant use of that language is the key to that confidence.
With the course developed from the same principles taught at the training ground youngsters will enjoy the opportunity to develop their technical skills, helping them to improve their passing, dribbling, tackling and shooting, and then putting them into practice in match situations against local teams.
This Soccer Camp is for serious players who can cope with at least 3 hours training a day (when taking English classes option otherwise all day soccer is 6 hours of training.
