GSE Performance Football Camp
Our football campers are sure to have an enjoyable time developing their technical skills and tactical knowledge of the game learning some Spanish philosophies and training in an intense environment.
Each player will improve their knowledge of football tactics and techniques learning from experienced coaches. All players will work through a list of skill sets with the aim to improve each ability through practice and tuition. Each player will learn to implement tactics into their game play.
Technical and Tactical Training
Using lots of technical drills, our training sessions are designed for players to imporve their techniques of football specifically, consistently and at match tempo. Players will broaden their tactical knowledge and add some Spanish metholodliges to their technical background to give them an advantage when returning to their teams.
Psychological and Physical Training
At GSE we teach our players to become leaders on the field, to always help their teammates and create maximum enjoyment of the game. We also place a great importance on teaching players about the physical components of the game and use drills to test and improve fitness.
Far more than just football, our programme has other sports, games, language activities, team events, evening events and so much more for your children to experience this summer.
We have two different age groups in our camp. 10-13 and 14-17. This is simply so that our capers can have more fun with children who are similar ages to them. During tennis sessions we may mix this up depending on their football ability.
Days will vary however they will consist of four 90 minute sessions and will cover fitness sessions, football, video analysis, mental training and other sports. Players can also choose to do Spanish for one sessions per day instead of football/sports.
The fitness training sessions will be suited to the ages of the players and will consist of on the pitch sessions: speed, agility, pylometrics, balance, stamina footwork. Along with gym sessions focused on strength, injury prevention and stretching.
Our camps will be grouped into ability level ranging from children playing at club level to academy players from the UK and Spain. The main thing is that everyone at the camp loves football and wants to train to reach their potential.
Our campers have the option to do a sports/football session or participate in Spanish tutoring ran by our qualified Spanish tutors. These will be ran in classrooms and will be game based learning supplementing the GSE booklet to promote our campers learning Spanish which they can practice with our native Spanish campers.
Each evening we have different events scheduled for our campers including Xbox game nights, discos, adventure games, table-tennis and dodgeball tournaments and many more exciting activitites.
Anyone signing up for two weeks of the camp will be able to join us on our Bristol trip. During our trip we will explore the city and see the famous Clifton Bridge.
