About: Soccer Schools

Palace for Life Foundation’s highly-rated Soccer Schools run every school holidays, and you can make sure your football-mad youngster gets to enjoy a packed day of professionally run, fun sessions by booking a place now.

These great days take place across south London and are designed by UEFA and FA qualified coaches at Palace for Life Foundation and Crystal Palace F.C. to give under-7s to under-12s girls and boys the chance to train like a pro in the school holidays.


Soccer Schools run from 9:00-16:00 BST and include fun-packed sessions to help youngsters develop their football and meet new friends.

Soccer Schools include:

  • Fun, practical sessions to enhance player development.
  • Daily competitions and challenges, including tournaments.
  • Interactive workshops to promote respect and fair play. 
  • Crystal Palace goody bags and prizes! 

Players attending Palace for Life Soccer Schools will have the chance to progress to our Player Development Centres to join the Palace Player Pathway. Through this avenue, there is a route into the Crystal Palace Academy for those who show outstanding potential. 

Palace for Life Soccer Schools include girls-only Soccer Schools, and fantastic Goalkeeper Soccer Schools ran by expert coaches. The Goalkeeper Soccer Schools allow budding goalkeepers to experience the same sessions that Crystal Palace F.C Academy goalkeepers take part in, as well as unique, intense and specialist coaching for the young players.
