Professional Soccer Training:
At EduKick Manchester, our professional soccer coaches work with players on every aspect of their training. The daily training sessions take place each afternoon at the EduKick Manchester training facility.
We aim to ensure that each player develops the physical, technical, tactical and mental foundation required for optimum performance during trial opportunities and matches in front of professional club scouts and coaches.
This is accomplished through training in advanced strength and conditioning techniques, uniquely integrated with mental, nutritional and sports medical principles, all enhanced by the environment and high tech facilities.
Features of the EduKick Manchester Year-Long Course include:
- Personal Fitness Programme: Each student, after initial assessment in week one, will be set a Personal Fitness Programme to develop their aerobic fitness and stamina along with strength and endurance.
Each week, students will receive a personal fitness tutorial, individually shaped to fit personal needs, setting weekly and monthly targets to develop the players’ fitness. These sessions will be conducted with the course leader. Throughout the week students will have several opportunities to work on their personal fitness plan.
- Weekly Competitive Friendly Matches: These fixtures allow the players the opportunity to put into practice the work they have done in training sessions, and are followed up with squad meetings to review performance and progression.
Students will play against professional and semi-professional club youth academy or development squads, or against local North West College teams whose coaches are also scouts for professional and semi-professional clubs.
- Professional Club Guest Coaching Sessions: EduKick Manchester has affiliations with many professional clubs in the North West of England, including Blackburn Rovers FC, Wigan Athletic FC, Burnley FC and Blackpool FC among others.
Each month the EduKick Manchester squad will receive two guest coaching sessions from professional club coaches. One session will take place at the EduKick Manchester Training complex and the second follow up session will take place at the facilities of the professional club.
- Open Trials: All EduKick Manchester participants are entered into open trial events that take place in the North West during the Winter, Spring and fall (Autumn) seasons.
We have carefully selected and partnered with a well-respected and ethically minded UK national scouting/trials organisation to give our participants the maximum opportunity to expose their talents in front of the invited professional & semi-professional club scouts & coaches.
- Fitness Training / Speed, Agility, Quickness: Sessions will include footwork and developing quick feet without the ball, co-ordination and awareness, anaerobic speed burst movements of the game and general aerobic fitness. During these sessions students will be taught the safe practices of training to assist in injury prevention.
- Football Coaching (Technical): Each week, the students will be coached not only in the complexities of the game but also the simple elements of the game to ensure individual improvement and performance. Practice makes perfect with every individual player.
- Football Coaching (Tactical): Each week, participants will work on the tactical side of their game together, looking at set plays, shape, movement, defending and attacking as a team and phase of play, using examples from games they have been involved in and the professional game in England.
- Stamina & Endurance Coaching: During these sessions and linking to the personal training plan, the students should develop fitness and strength to allow them to compete and increase their physical presence of the field.
- Individual Tutorials: Each student will meet with a senior EduKick staff member a minimum of twice per term. This procedure will ensure a happy stay and continued improvement in all aspects of the course and provides the perfect opportunity to obtain the specific and individual feedback necessary to ensure the welfare, safety and satisfaction off all EduKick students.
