Holiday Camps

Essex Football Coaching has operated successful football camps for the past five years. The camps are open to all children between the ages of four and twelve years old.

Why us?

Being a reasonably priced football camp in the borough of Brentwood, run by FA level 1 and 2 coaches, makes us an attractive choice. With numbers growing year on year, the camp is enjoyed by many local players due to the attractive rewards that they are able to achieve throughout the three days. The booking system is made easy for parents because we understand how things change in the daily the life of a family. All we ask is that parents email or telephone to confirm a reserved place for their child on our camp. Parents then need to complete the form on the back of the leaflet and bring it along on the day with payment - easy!

What does the camp involve?

A day at our camp consists of many different coaching sessions. Players begin the morning with a skills session. This allows them to express themselves and try any skills that they have previously learnt. They then move into fun based games to bring the smiles to their faces. Every day will also involve a competition to ensure that players leave the course with a reward. At the end of every day the players are placed into their teams to take part in a World Cup. This tournament is run across the three days and is the highlight of the camp.

Visit by a professional footballer

Over the last two years we have included a professional footballer’s visit. In 2014 Lawrie Wilson from Charlton Athletic FC visited us for a player interview, pictures with the groups and a kick around with the pupils. He also brought along a signed Charlton Athletic shirt as well as several signed balls to give away as prizes.
