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.
Coaching programme focuses on technical and tactical player development. Small sided games are played under high intensity conditions to improve passing, speed of movement, technique and game understanding.
For advanced and experienced players, the camp offers a more intense and advanced level of coaching, which may include video analysis, sessions on nutritional advice, injury prevention and fitness.
We recommend the Academy Programme (all day soccer only programme) 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.
This Soccer Camp is for serious players who can cope with at least 3 hours training a day (when taking English classes option) otherwise the all day soccer only Academy Programme is 6 hours of soccer training a day.

Arsenal Emirates Stadium visit in London:
All participants will have an option for a visit during the weekend to the Emirates Stadium, the home of Arsenal FC (only for 2 weeks stay as weekly campers leave on Saturday). (Note: in some exceptional circumstances, England soccer clubs close their stadia in the summer months with very little notice and therefore exact destinations and availability may need to change without prior warning).
Option Only: English Classes as a Second Language
