Learn to Play the Arsenal Way
At Arsenal Football Club we pride ourselves on playing as a team to produce imaginative, entertaining and skilful football. We take time to develop and nurture our younger players to ensure that they reach their full potential. By guiding players through our extensive training programmes, we have produced many world-class players over the years. The training programmes in our Arsenal Soccer Schools have been developed based on the same principles we teach at the Arsenal training ground; developing young players’ technical skills and passion for the game to ensure they become the best players and athletes they possibly can.
This year our residential programmes have been running for over 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.
In the summer 2014 Arsenal Soccer Schools residential programmes will run at two locations in the UK. Both venues offer a safe and secure environment with accommodation, meals, evening activities and matches played on site. He programmes run from Sunday afternoon through to Friday afternoon and include five nights full board accommodation with evening activities included. The coaching team remains onsite for the duration and a resident physiotherapist along with additional support staff who are on hand.
Programmes are open to boys 9 to 15 years old, and girls 9 to 12 years old
The programme sessions consist of technical and tactical player development, nutritional advice to increase fitness levels and small sided matches in high intensity tournaments to improve passing, speed of movement, technique and game understanding.
To ensure that every child who attends progresses during their time on the programme the coaches will spend an initial period assessing and evaluating their performance to ensure that they are grouped with children of a similar level and age. The coaches then work with each group and child to improve skill levels. Our aim is that all children leave the programme with greater knowledge of the game and technical skills.
During the week the group will visit Emirates Stadium for a behind the scenes tour where they will see all the areas which are crucial to the team on a matchday - from a walk down the players' tunnel to taking a seat in the first team dressing room and in the dug-out.What’s included:
