Chelsea Chatter: A Super Start for our Football Camps
Our first ever Chelsea FC Foundation Football Camp launched at Long Road Sixth Form College this Easter. It was an exciting week, as boys and girls learned passing, defending and scoring techniques.
“The best thing about the course was ‘Everything football’”
Each day, coaches explored the tactics of individual Chelsea FC footballers; Eden Hazard, David Luiz, Fran Kirby and Gonzalo Higuain, with a final Chelsea FC Challenge day on Friday to put children’s new skills to the test.
Learning footballers’ favourite moves wasn’t just for fun; this method meant that professional techniques were taught with added context to help children integrate the new moves into their play.
“The balance of practical football & learning about nutrition etc. kept them interested”
Our Chelsea FC Foundation Football Camp wasn’t just play and training; daily schedules incorporated classes to cover the wider commitments of football. For example, seminars on nutrition and recovery helped children learn about aspects of lifestyle that footballers must respect in order to succeed.
Chelsea FC Foundation Football Camps will be running at multiple venues across the UK this summer.
