The Pro:Direct Academy is a fun-filled course for children of all abilities to enjoy learning from UEFA & FA qualified coaches, using the Pro:Direct Pathway of Player Development method.
Each week is led by a Star Coach, who has played or coached at a professional football club and features football coaching, games, soccer challenges and activities.
All full-week Academy attendees will receive a football, Academy training t-shirt, certificate, and player report.
The Pro:Direct Academy is for all boys and girls aged 5-14 years. Whether this is your first experience of football, or you regularly play for a club or team, our programme caters for all ability levels and is written so that everyone is continuously challenged in a fun environment.
We have three age categories with specially targeted programmes:
Our Juniors (5-7 year olds) programme establishes the fundamentals of football and sport in general. We understand the specific needs of this age range and this is reflected in our curriculum which features shorter sessions, football related skills in a wider context, and the need for a variety of both high and lower intensity activities. The Junior programme has a holistic approach and may also include arts and crafts, as well as multi-activity games and play sessions.
Our Seniors (8-10 years) and Pro 1st team (11-14 years) enjoy learning new skills in all aspects of football such as attacking, defending, individual skills, shooting and game rules. Our themed sessions encourage a focus on achievement with plenty of opportunities to put skills into action through small sided games and challenges.
We take our responsibilities for the care of each child at our camps very seriously. This page is designed to provide all necessary and useful information for parents; from the timings of a typical day to our booking terms and conditions.
