Arsenal Soccer Schools will be holding training programmes at Sportspace Longdean in Hemel Hempstead and Sportspace Berkhamsted during the October half-term.

The courses will run from 10am to 3pm from Wednesday, October 28 to Friday, October 30.

The courses, which are designed for boys and girls aged 5 to 11, are based on the same techniques employed by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to nurture young talent at the Gunners’ academy.

However, participants don’t have to be future Premier League stars to enjoy the course; all ability levels are invited to take part, and the emphasis is on having fun while learning to play football the Arsenal way.

Each day players will take part in warm-ups, reaction games, skills and technique training, fun games, matches and tournaments.

All players who attend the full course will receive a player report card, an Arsenal Soccer Schools gift and a medal. There will be lots of other prizes including the coveted Player of the Week trophy.

The course is priced at £20 for one day, £38 for two days or £52 for the full three-day course. To book a place, please visit www.playthearsenalway.com
