Summer Elite Course - Invite Only - 12th to 15th August 2014

Our Elite Week is like no other in the town. It is aimed at players with the mental, physical and technical ability to push themselves beyond their comfort zone and show a desire to improve.
The week is tough but enjoyable with coaches who have exclusive access to coaching drills used by the worlds top football clubs such as Chelsea, AC Milan and Boca Juniors and the focus is on technical improvement over the 4 days coaching. 
Players will work through tactical and technical practices, recreating attacking phases of play to create goalscoring opportunities and will develop a thorough understanding of all aspects required to improve the individual as well as their function within a team. 

To gain most from the week, players need to stay focussed, work hard and meet every challenge with enthusiasm and endeavour. If you can do this, you are almost assured of finishing the week a better player than you started it. 

The course is visited, over the week by professional football club scouts who watch closely for talented boys who they feel can take the next step in their development. 

Included within the course :- 
  • Experienced UEFA Qualified Level 3 Coaches


  • Exclusive Elite Week Playing Strip (shirt, shorts and socks)


  • New match standard football


  • Exclusive drills from the worlds top clubs


  • Experience of how professional football clubs academies train
