CLAIM YOUR HALF-TERM DISCOUNT ON SOCCER SCHOOLS NOW

Posted on: Thu 07 Feb 2013

The club's offering a 10 per cent discount on all Chelsea Soccer Schools to keep budding footballers entertained this half-term.

Chelsea Foundation coaches will provide expert coaching in a fun and safe environment for aspiring footballers of all abilities with daily sessions will be taking place in London, Sussex, Kent, Hampshire, Essex, Surrey and Berkshire.

There is a variety of courses available and a wide range of ages are welcome. The Mini-Kicker sessions provide 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.

This half-term will also see a girls-only Soccer School running in Elmbridge which incorporates skills practice, game understanding, fun challenges and small-sided games. The course has been designed for female footballers by coaches from Chelsea's Girls' Centre of Excellence.

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.
