Introduction

tennis1Our nine years running the Project Sports Academy at Epsom have been a huge success. Our Soccer Academy is well established and 2016 saw its 20th year of operation, the Golf and Tennis Academies are becoming more and more popular and offering an increasingly high standard and good level of coaching. The general feedback we got from the 2016 programme was yet again first rate from the quality of the coaching to the general facilities and to the programme itself. The Dance Academy was new in 2010 and once again we received wonderful feedback from those taking part in 2016. Students especially complemented the outstanding varied tuition.

All 5 academies will offer an English language or multi sport option towards the end of the day.

The Venue

The Project International Elite Sports Academy is delighted once again to be based at Epsom College, just 15 miles from Central London and with easy access to both Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. It boasts top class facilities in all areas, especially sport. The College was built in the early 1850s and its beautiful Gothic style buildings are set in 8 acres of quite magnificent grounds on the edge of Epsom Downs. The soccer pitches are of the highest quality and there are numerous tennis courts, all in top class condition. There are two sports halls. There is also an indoor swimming pool, two dance studios, and several squash courts. The college is little more than a 5 minute walk to the town centre.

The Participants

dance1Recommended age range – 10-16 years

The Academy is open to boys and girls between 10 and 16 years from all over the world, including Great Britain. We welcome individuals as well as organised groups/teams to the truly international environment that the Academy offers.
Please note that the Elite Academy is NOT suitable for those who are at a very basic level or who merely want social soccer, golf, dance, basketball or tennis.

STAFFING & PASTORAL CARE

In addition to our top quality coaching staff , we have our own staff on site 24 hours a day. A Programme Director will oversee all aspects of the programme and they are in constant liaison with the soccer, golf, tennis, dance & basketball coaches, the school representatives, caterers, group leaders and the students themselves as well as Head office etc.

Under the Programme Director, at each venue, we have an Activities Coordinator and a Welfare Pastoral Care Coordinator with Activity Staff to plan and organise the multi sport sessions, and Teaching Staff to take care of the teaching.

soccer4All staff are chosen for their ability to work with children and look after their various needs. They are aware that students are away from home, some of them for the first time and pastoral care is a major priority. All staff accompany the students on their trips and are responsible for getting the students up in the mornings, ensuring they eat properly, planning evening activities and ensuring they get to bed at the appropriate time.

EXCURSIONS

We include a full day excursion each week. This will, as far as possible, be related to the appropriate sport. Additionally there will be a trip out for the soccer players to watch a top team train and matches against local opposition for all sports.

DATES

We can accommodate students on minimum 1 week stays. We recommend fortnight stays but 3 and 4 weeks stays are also possible.
