BOOK YOUR HALF-TERM SOCCER SCHOOL NOW

Posted on: Fri 05 Oct 2012

October half-term is just round the corner and Chelsea Soccer Schools are once again offering the perfect way to keep any budding young footballer busy.

The club's also offering a 10 per cent discount for any Soccer School place booked online.

Daily sessions will be taking place throughout half-term in London, Sussex, Kent, Hampshire, Essex, Surrey and Berkshire and there is a variety of courses available.

A wide range of ages are welcome, with the Mini-Kicker sessions providing an introduction to the game for four to five-year-olds before the regular soccer schools take over for those aged between six and 14.

The Mini-Kicker course eases young children into football with a basic introduction to the rules of the game. It encourages them to learn the basic techniques and communication skills needed to play the sport in a higher age group.

A typical day at a Chelsea Soccer School is divided evenly into training sessions to develop skills and small-sided games and mini-tournaments to aid team work. The advanced courses take things further with more intense sessions for those with a higher level of fitness that regularly train and play at team level.

There are also specialised goalkeeper courses available, which see smaller groups focus on the unique skills needed to excel between the posts, before joining the rest of the players for practice games.

The Chelsea Foundation's dedicated coaches all hold valid CRB, FA Coaching, Safeguarding Children and First Aid certificates to ensure the highest levels of both coaching and safety.

All soccer schools are also dedicated to promoting the Chelsea Foundation's values of fair play, respect and discipline as well as encouraging team play and developing social skills.
