Football fun at Arsenal Summer School

Arsenal Soccer Schools are holding training programmes during the summer holidays in Hemel and Berkhamsted.

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

But participants don’t have to be future Premier League stars to enjoy the course, which welcomes footballers of all abilities.

The emphasis is on having fun whilst 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.

Courses will be themed around Euro 2016.

All players who attend the full three-day course will receive a personal player’s report card, an Arsenal Soccer Schools gift and a medal.

There will also be lots of other prizes, including trophies for fair play, tournament winners and the coveted Player of the Week trophy.

The three-day courses run from 10am to 3pm each day and cost £60, but children can also take part for one or two days at £25 per day.

Arsenal Soccer Schools are taking place from August 9 to 11 and August 16 to 18 at Sportspace Berkhamsted.

They are also taking place from August 8 to 10, from August 17 to 19, and from August 22 to 24 at Sportspace Hemel Hempstead.

And there is one last Soccer School at Parmiter’s School, Watford, from August 23 to 25.
