6- or 13-night football camps for 12 - 17 year old girls at Lancing College
Nike Girls’ Football Camps offer girls the chance to train with like-minded young female players in specialist girls’ weeks during the summer. The camp is based at Lancing College, a prestigious private school on the south coast of England near to Brighton with excellent football facilities and impressive buildings. Players will learn from female coaches and be inspired by the philosophy of Brighton and Hove Albion’s women’s football team who play in the Women’s Super League, the top tier of women’s football in England. Players stay in all-female accommodation at Lancing College and enjoy excursions to famous English cities, as well as a training session at Brighton and Hove Albion’s training ground each week.
football And english
A programme combining daily football training with Brighton and Hove Albion’s coaches, and daily English lessons with professional English teachers in a curriculum designed to complement the football programme. Players work together on football-related projects and make new friends from all over the world.
A programme designed for players looking to focus on improving their football. Players train twice a day, working on all aspects of their game with Brighton and Hove Albion Soccer Schools’ coaches. Meeting like-minded girls joining the programme from across the world, players will leave with new skills and new friends.
The girls coaching programme is led by Brighton and Hove Albion Soccer Schools’ coaches, including female coaches. Each session focuses on a particular skill as well as the club’s core practices. Coaches use conditioned drills and activities based on movement. Each session ends with small-sided games, offering players the chance to put newly developed skills into practice while coaches assess their progress. Girls will also enjoy workshops on nutrition and hydration, strength and conditioning and recovery.
For those taking Football + English, our professional and dedicated English language teachers use a customised curriculum based on the CLIL approach used in top schools worldwide. Practicing communication, reading and writing skills, students will put their learning into context, creating press releases, writing articles, conducting player interviews and researching sports-related media. An entry test groups students by age and ability at the start of the week. With an average of 12 students per class, students get excellent individual feedback.
Players not only improve their football skills but understand what it takes to become an elite athlete in an international football environment. Non-native English speakers improve their spoken English whether on the Football and English camp or the Total Football Camp, while those studying English develop in speaking, reading and writing. All players receive an individual coaching assessment and certificate to take home. Players studying English also receive a detailed weekly report and completion certificate from their teacher.
The camp is based at Lancing College, a leading private school on the south coast of England just 15 minutes from Brighton. The school is set in extensive grounds with panoramic views out to the sea and has a long history of sporting and academic excellence. Facilities include a 25m swimming pool, grass and astro football pitches, tennis courts and an indoor sports hall.
