Week-long camps every school holiday where football meets fun. Attend as much or little as you like.

2022 Holiday Camp Calendar

Any age, any ability

Our football holiday development camps are catered to children aged 4-12 years old, of all ability levels. Whether you are a beginner or looking to join a professional academy, our football holiday camps are structured to suit everyone.

Fun whatever the weather

Our holiday clubs make use of both indoor and outdoor spaces so your child is always comfortable. We focus on technique in small spaces during winter, so players can experiment on larger fields in summer.

Camps that feel like holidays

We take great pride in the facilities we rent and always ensure we have access to indoor and outdoor facilities during the winter months, which means our holiday development camps are rarely cancelled!

What can you expect at a typical day at camp?

1/13

4 skills your child will learn:

Technical

We teach your child fundamental football skills, such as passing or shooting, to help them become more technically-gifted footballers. We then reinforce these skills each day of football camp, with team games against other players with the same ability to boost decision-making alongside technique.

Social

We keep our development camps to 10 children per coach. This guarantees that your child gets the attention they deserve and the coaching they’re after. It also makes it easier to build everlasting friendships for children who find large group situations challenging. Each day spans 6 hours of fun, meaning your child learns to build strong social connections outside of school.

Physical

Our summer, Easter, winter and half-term camps are about getting your child moving and physically strong. Each day of camp helps build fundamental physical skills that the child can use as they grow older or in other sports. Not only does it help with physical fitness, but with speed and agility too. While some children may usually play football for an hour, each full day gives many hours of football building endurance and stamina.

Psychology

Our unique football holiday camps also help with cognitive function. You will see your child develop better concentration, learning, listening, and decision-making skills after each day at camp.
