Soccer Schools return to south London this Easter - book now

Palace for Life Soccer Schools are returning this Easter. Read below to find out what courses are available and how to book on.

Palace for Life’s highly-rated Soccer Schools are returning this Easter in south London, and you can book a place for your child here.

All of the sessions are designed by coaches at Palace for Life and Crystal Palace F.C. to give under 7 to 16 year old girls and boys the opportunity to develop their football and meet new friends during the school holidays. Our Soccer Schools have been specially designed by coaches at Palace for Life Foundation and Crystal Palace FC to provide the best football experience for players in south London.

WHAT SESSIONS ARE AVAILABLE?

There is something for everyone this Easter! See below for course details.

Boys & girls and girls-only Soccer Schools

Our Soccer Schools provide a fun and enjoyable experience to learn new skills, play in competitions and make friends! As well as improving as a footballer, each child will learn vital social skills. Children will be coached by FA and UEFA licenced coaches with vast and different areas of expertise.

Mixed and girls-only sessions are available.

Goalkeeper specific Soccer Schools

Our Goalkeeper specific Soccer Schools provide a fun and enjoyable experience to learn new skills, play in competitions and make friends! As well as improving as a footballer, each child will learn vital social skills. Children will be coached by FA and UEFA licenced coaches with vast and different areas of expertise, with a chance to be selected for our Goalkeeper Player Development Centres.

Player Pathway Week

Our Player Development Centre Pathway Week is for children currently in our Tier 1-3 Player Development Centre structure. Here, there will be a focus on honing and fine-tuning the player development taking place at our Centres. A close link to the Academy Philosophy will structure sessions and players will have an extra chance to impress the coaches in order to be considered for movement into a different tier.

Detailed player feedback will be given to children who attend all 5 days in order to support your child’s development through our tier system and towards the academy’s recruitment structure.

Trial Day

Have you got what it takes to join a Palace for Life development centre or secure a trial for the academy? The Palace for Life trial offers you an opportunity to play in front of Palace for Life Coaches, in order to see if your son can be invited to a Palace for Life Development Centre. Our Development Centres have a pathway into the Crystal Palace Academy. Academy coaches and academy scouts will also be attending the sessions to see if any of the players can make the leap straight into the boy’s academy!
