How to Choose the Right Soccer School

Soccer schools are found all around the world with some being run by major international football clubs and others by local sports associations. These schools provide specialist training for children interested in football. Many of these schools charge for their services so how do you choose the right school for your child. In this article we will show you what to look for.

Brand & Reputation

This is particularly important with the smaller clubs and association. Its worth spending some time researching each club. You will want to find out how they are with children and youths and what style of teaching they use. Will your children be taught in a safe environment and how intensive is it. Some clubs will run high intensity courses which wont suit everyone.

The schools run by major football clubs often have excellent reputations as they are able to invest in proper facilities and professionally trained coaches. Schools run by clubs are often well structured and mirror the style of football used by the clubs first team.

Football School Facilities

Some soccer schools offer extended training courses which means the participants will stay on site. These are often week long courses. It is important to ensure that your child will be staying and training in a safe environment. Bigger organisations will usually have better facilities. Despite this many of the larger schools have a more generic focus. You may find that some of the associations have specialist facilities for particular styles of footballers.

Scouting Potential

Some of the larger schools such as those run by major football clubs often invite scouts to sessions. This can be key to some participants as they are often looking to get picked up by a club. Smaller associations cant always guarantee the presence of scouts.

Types of Courses

Good soccer schools will put on a range of courses with varying time lengths. This is because they try to tailor their offerings to individuals rather than generalising. You will find that many schools offer team training, camps and day training sessions.

Extra Benefits

Some of the major football club run schools are able to offer extra benefits. This can include the chance to play in a major premier league stadium or meet a particular player. For some this opportunity can make a big difference and be the deciding factor.

These are some of the things to look for when choosing a soccer school. Soccer schools can be expensive so planning is essential. You should also consider how far you have to travel and what your child would want from the course. Are they looking to get into football as a career or want a way to spend a fun week away? Many of the big schools will run courses nationwide so it’s well worth having a look online.

The most important thing is that your child has fun. Football is a game that can be enjoyed by anyone and most schools are open to all ages.
