Palace for Life Winter Soccer Schools now available

Palace for Life Foundation Soccer Schools are now open to book for this winter.

Palace for Life Foundation are delighted to announce three days of Soccer Schools during the Christmas holidays. Sessions will be taking place on 23rd December and 2-3rd January at Kent County Cricket Club in Beckenham, with both practical sessions on the pitch and interactive sessions off the pitch to help young players to Train Like a Pro.

You can book the course here.

Soccer Schools will include a range of features that have been designed by experienced Palace for Life coaches to give young footballers an insight into the world of professional football.

The course includes:

  • Fun, practical sessions to enhance player development
  • Interactive workshops to promote respect and fair play
  • Workbooks and individualised feedback (for players attending all three days)
  • Healthy packed lunch provided

Palace for Life Football Development Manager, Tim Sells, said: “We’re really excited to offer these Soccer Schools for those young players who want to continue working on their football and train with Palace during the Christmas holidays. We also hope that the skills they develop, like teamwork and problem solving, will help them on and off the pitch.”


My son really enjoys coming to these courses. As a parent it’s important that he has good quality coaches where he can learn and develop, and this is the reason why we booked the course in the first place. He has now been twice and we would recommend them to a friend.

Palace for Life have been running football courses for aspiring young players for over 25 years and all coaches are FA-licensed, DBS-checked and have first aid and safeguarding qualifications.

Players who attend Soccer Schools also have the chance to be invited to trial for Palace for Life Development Centres, with the potential to progress into the Crystal Palace Academy.  Earlier this year, Harvey signed for the CPFC Academy Under-11 side after initially attending a Palace for Life Soccer School.
