The Individuals that set UK Football Camp apart from other camps...



UK Football Camps provide a player to coach ratio which is better than that required by the FA. This is to ensure that your child receives the best possible group coaching experience with a one-to-one feel.

The Senior Coaches hand pick coaching teams directly from a list of FA registered coaches and ensure that they are all:
  • FA qualified to the required level
  • Up to date CRB/DBS checked
  • FA First Aid certificated
  • Specialised in chosen age group
All our coaches must also hold the necessary skills to provide the very best modern coaching techniques and be able to implement the structured UK Football Camps syllabus to the highest of standards. As well as being great coaches, it's of equal importance that they can implement a lot of fun to the program.
