Multi Sports Programme
Our Multi Sports Development programme in Essex currently delivers sessions in dance, cricket, badminton, judo, table tennis and volleyball to increase provision and raise overall sporting participation levels.

The project seeks to develop significant changes in how young people are supported to move from school to club and how clubs are supported to reach out to schools. It utilises the experience and expertise of the National Governing Bodies of Sport and the network of School Sport Partnerships to build the capacity of sports clubs, working alongside the club and community outreach programmes.

In addition coaching and leadership courses are offered to young people allowing for growth and sustainability.

Coaching Clinics
At schools and leisure centres across the South East, coaching clinics operate to increase participation during out-of-school hours. Players have the opportunity to attend and participate within a safe and friendly environment to develop their technical ability. Talented players also have the opportunity to further develop their game by being referred into academy development squads.

Academy Development Squads
Working in partnership with Chelsea Academy, structured and progressive sessions are delivered and fixtures organised with the intention to refer players into the Academy. An ETC (Excellence Training Centres) have been established in partnership with the Chelsea Academy to educate potential players who are striving for academy status.


Chelsea FC Foundation Academies
The elite and recreational academy programmes offer both male and female players from all over the world the opportunity to broaden their educational learning while participating in a fully comprehensive training and playing programme.

Male academies are currently established at the Canterbury Academy in Kent, Sandwich Technology School in Kent, Amersham and Wycombe College in Buckinghamshire, Itchen College in Hampshire, Strodes College in Middlesex, Merrist Wood Agricultural College in Surrey and Southfields College in London. Our Female Academy runs at Merrist Wood Agricultural College in Surrey.

The Academy students have personalised schedules and timetables which enable the balance of lessons against the rigours of an in-depth football development programme. All aspects of football are catered for and the programmes often see the students taking their first steps onto the coaching ladder via in-house FA courses.

The academies offer a great opportunity for students to expand their education while learning about the game they all love. With first-class facilities and resources, the academies provide an excellent pathway to learning.


In School Coaching / PPA
Working throughout the South East, links have been developed in primary schools to deliver regular PE lessons. Delivery of the sessions are in line with appropriate national curriculum key stages assisting with school levels of attainment. The syllabus covers a range of PE Curriculum topics, in which a variety of sports and exercises will be taught to the pupils, focusing on agility, balance, coordination and movement. These skills and techniques will then be transferred into team games. The PE curriculum can also be linked into a theory based session, which will include learning about how the body works during exercise.


Extended Schools Programme
Linking into extended schools co-ordinators, out-of-school hours provision is delivered. This consists of school-based breakfast clubs, lunch-time clubs and after-school clubs. In addition a holiday provision is provided throughout London, Surrey, Essex Hampshire and Sussex.


Team Coaching
Whether you are looking to kick-start your season, seeking a mid-season on a high, team coaching could be the ideal experience for you. Exciting, high quality attacking football is being taught by our experienced Chelsea coaches. They will work with your players and coaches to achieve your optimum level of performance by learning to play the Chelsea way and working on the importance of team cohesion.

Effective partnerships have been established with local FA charter standard youth football clubs to develop positive club links. Specific coaching sessions, workshops and qualification courses are delivered throughout the season to players, parents and coaches to assist with their individual development needs.

Coach Education
A comprehensive Coach Education programme is delivered to provide pupils, teachers and local youth club team managers with practical coaching advice and education as part of a club link initiative. Coach education courses are also delivered to up-skill young vulnerable people with the intention to employ them as front-line service staff within the strand to create community role models.

Satellite Coaching Clinics
Groups follow a specially created syllabus and work to set coaching ratios dictated by set age bands enabling players to develop and improve their game. The coaching sessions combine technical instruction through drills, games and small-sided matches.

Tournament/ Festivals
When required and possible, given enough time we will support tournaments and festivals for our partner schools by providing coaches as referees and prizes if needed. In addition to the coaching programme, all schools will be offered access to a range of school tournaments at set times throughout the academic year run by Chelsea FITC, some of which will be hosted at the Chelsea training ground.

Summer Fair Support
An alternative to curriculum support is an option to use Chelsea Coaches to run a Beat the Keeper stall for two hours at the Summer Fair. Chelsea FITC will provide a trophy and small prize while donating all the proceeds to the school PTA.
