Manchester December Updates!

aaa2

The last week of December was full of great technique training and work. The boys did an amazing job of mastering the new skills.

Training hard.

The beginning of the week brought in the Futsal training, which is a type of ball control. It adds a great advantage on the field by using quick passes in tight areas. The Spanish academy has also had great success with this.

EduKick Manchester v. Liverpool (under 18 squad).

Later on during the week, the team started working on more communication and controlling the ball. Problems with ball possession and misunderstanding around the team have actually cost the Manchester guys four goals at the Liverpool game.

The Man of the Match was Miles Kibukosya.

On Saturday the boys headed out to visit Ewood Park to check out the Champion fixture, the result being 1 – 1. It was a great way for the team to see the training and skill involved with playing a good game at the highest caliber.

EduKick England: How Do Host Homes Really Work?

Getting excellent soccer training, the best coaching, a specialized fitness plan, and a great education sounds like an easy decision to make. But we know it can be hard to envision yourself really living in another country.

Questions like: Where will I study? What will I eat? What if I want to go out? and many more can cause prospective students to shy away from making the best decision of their lives.

And while it’s true that dedicating to an overseas soccer academy can be a difficult step, a little information can erase that problem. That’s why our directors have put together this video following one of our student-players, JP, through his life living with a host family in England.

Watch the video below to reveal the best chance you have at working to make your dreams a reality. Not only are his accomodations, security and comfort taken into account, his host family shows genuine appreciation for their charge and enjoys the opportunity to support a young athlete in training.

After that, take a moment to listen to our Director of EduKick Manchester, and decide if our soccer academy in Manchester, England, might be right for you.

Find out what living in Manchester is really like.

Manchester Soccer Academy Gains Attention

EIFA at Manchester

Soccer players (or football players, as they say overseas) ages 14-24 have a place they can go to learn and achieve their goals. It’s called EduKick International Football Association, and one of our best venues is in Manchester, England. Want to know more? Read on, watch the video below, then sign up for even more information!

Daily Coaching Sessions

Each day the student-players participate in daily coaching sessions where they are trained to be outstanding footballers in every aspect of their game. Not only that, but the individualized counsel they receive encourages them in their unique abilities. These times offer students the chance to try out a variety of surfaces and pitches to keep them aware and confident on any playing ground.

Fitness Suite

Access to a gym is a requirement for all athletes, and for EduKick Academy students, that means an entire suite of equipment, machines, personalized workout plans and one-on-one guidance. Our gym facility takes fitness seriously and is fully-equipped to provide a workout for every training requirement.

Professional Trials

Our student-players are all given opportunities and trials with professional clubs. In fact, each month we have a different pro-club come in and do a guest session where they can show the players what is expected of them and put them through their paces to get an idea of where the players stand. Because of these fantastic opportunities, every training session and guest session is gearing them up for a trial.

“I have travelled half way around the world from Australia to pursue my passion of playing football. I researched many academy’s in the UK and decided EduKick Manchester would be the most suitable academy for me, with their awesome training programmes and commitment to their students.

I arrived in January 2016, I am using this wonderful experience and opportunity to become the best footballer I can be with the intent of becoming a Professional footballer.”

Academic Direction

As each player seeks a different track in life, we encourage them to follow the best academic course for that purpose. Full-time academic training includes courses like ESL, EFL, BTEC Sports Science, IGCSE, A-Level, and USA 8-12 Online Distance Learning, providing a wide variety of options for them to choose from in order to best prepare them for the future.

Classroom Soccer Training Sessions

Soccer excellence doesn’t begin and end on the pitch. We make it a point to teach progresssions and more cognitive concepts in a classroom where they can study the mental side of the game. Guest speakers are brought in monthly to encourage, inspire, educate and guide the players on to be the best in their personal lives and game.

Manchester: Football City

Football in Manchester is the sport of choice for its inhabitants. This culture of football greatness pervades the city, our academy and our student-players and coaches. To be here, is to love the game, and it makes us that much better as a football academy.
