Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Maren Mjelde recently helped launch a new programme which will see the Chelsea Foundation link up with Super Soccer Camps.
Run by Super Camps, the five-day specialist course will operate at nine different Super Camps venues across England offering a unique insight and experience into all aspects of being a footballer.
Participants will receive their own Nike Chelsea FC Foundation training kit and be trained by our very own Chelsea Foundation coaches, as well as being given the opportunity to participate in nutrition, recovery and media workshops to enhance their education.
Speaking at the launch event at Cobham, Loftus-Cheek, who has been with Chelsea since the Under-8s age group, said: ‘The Chelsea Foundation have top coaches and so you are learning from the best.
‘I’ve seen the information they feed you every day which you use to get yourself to the top level.’
Chelsea Foundation head of region South-West, Dan Jacquart, said: ‘Super Camps are a multi-activity type course so they do lots and lots of different activities and the Chelsea Foundation are going to be their football camp provider.
‘Primarily it will be football delivery in terms of conducting themselves as young professional football players, so it will be nutrition, how to prepare themselves for matches and team building exercises. There will be a number of different facets and it’s not just about what they do on the pitches.’
Super Camps’ operation director, Nathan Nicholas, said: ‘We are really excited to announce that next year we will be launching a joint venture, Super Soccer Camps and we will essentially be joining forces to deliver a football product for children aged six to 12.
‘The Foundation coaches have great techniques to not just make the children feel comfortable but also add to their individual skills when they are playing.’
