Forthcoming Trials Camps
What Does The Soccer Camp Consist Of?
There are two options for players, either Fully Residential for the week or as a Day Student. This FootballCV Trials Camp has been designed to give players the ideal preparation and opportunity to develop all areas of their performance, culminating in a final day ‘Trial Match’, in-front of invited Managers, Coaches and Scouts from Professional and Semi-Professional clubs.
Based at a Professional Football Club, it means FootballCV Trials Camp staff have all top-quality facilities at their ‘finger-tips’, therefore we can create a fantastic environment for players to develop their performance and ability levels. We have use of a number of top-quality outdoor grass, outdoor astro-turf and indoor pitches. The meals provided are of high quality and are based on a professional footballers diet.
The camp will include:
The FootballCV February half-term 2008 trials camp was a resounding success with players particularly praising the quality of the coaching and forming a great bond with head coaches Kevin Wilson and Danny Nicholls.
The week had consisted of coaching sessions throughout the week including strength and conditioning sessions and dutch-style sessions with Coerver Coaching.
In the evenings the players were delivered talks from a sports psychologist, nutritional advice from Fat Chance UK, life as a professional player from Steve Howard (Leicester City) and advice on how to make it as a pro from Paul Brackwell of Aston Villa FC Academy.
The campers also enjoyed a five-a-side tournament and a playstation pro-evo football tournament.
The week then culminated in trial matches on the Friday in front of scouts from Aston Villa, Leicester City, Blackburn Rovers, Ipswich Town, Grimsby Town and Rushden & Diamonds.
All players who attended also received a written evaluation of their performance as well as their free FootballCV t-shirts and water bottles.
"I wanted to say thank you for the experience that my son had (Nick Chymiak) on your recent camp at Grendon Hall. He had an amazing time and loved every minute. All the staff have been extremely accomodating. Nick described the coaching to be second to none and relished every minute, he has learnt lots of new things and feels he has grown from the experience and also made lots of new friends and is already talking to me on the phone to organise next years trip!
We will be advising anyone back here in Australia that if they are thinking of going overseas to attend one of your camps as it will be an experience that they will never forget. Again we thank you for all that you have done." Vanessa Chymiak - Mother of FCV Member Nicholas Chymiak.
Samuel Young, FCV Member who travelled from Australia to attend the Trials Camp said; “I would just like to thank FootballCV for a great week. I learnt a lot and met so many great people from all around the world and would definitely return for another camp”.
Greg, the father of FCV members Sean and Mitchell Carter, from Taiwan said; “Thanks again for the FootballCV experience for the boys, they really enjoyed it”.
The Father of Canadian FootballCV member Anthony Van De Vendel said; “Anthony had a great time, was very impressed with the camp, and learned a lot. Thank you so much for taking care of him!”
Mr Page, father of Guernsey-based FCV member Callum Chapman-Page, said; “Thank you guys for looking after Callum, he really enjoyed the course and said it was the best he had been on and he has been on quite few! Callum really enjoyed the trial match very much and also liked the facilities”.
Guardian of Spanish FCV member Bruno Rodriguez, said; “I have great pleasure in telling you that Bruno was very very happy. He does not have a bad word to say about the course, the people (including the taxi driver!!), the atmosphere....in general everything. So thank you very much...”
