What if I am over the age of 14?
Our Residential Trial Camps are open to boys aged 13 -17 years and are for players who play at team or club level. They are intense courses which focus on all aspects of the game including nutrition, injury prevention etc. The camps are open to players from the UK and Overseas and include a training session at our state of the art training complex on the last day.

I want a trial. Can you help?
Unfortunately not, although we provide football coaching for young players, we are not part of the Chelsea Academy so cannot assist with trials or scouting.

Why do you not run any courses in my area?
We are looking at expanding the areas in which we work so if you would like to express interest in running a course around your area, please email us at soccerschools@chelseafc.com

Can you donate goods for our fete or charity event?
We are a self funding department and do not get an allocation of goods for donation. If you require anything for charity purposes please send your request in writing to the main football club.

Who carries out the coaching on the courses?
All our coaching staff are trained specifically in the Chelsea style, are FA qualified, CRB checked and hold a current Emergency Aid and Safeguarding Children certificates.
