The ISS Football Academy course content: the ISS Football Camp is committed to bridging the gap from grassroots football to academy football. This is a pivotal movement for English and International Football to ensure that we are developing youth players to reach their full potential. We therefore provide our students with academy standard coaching to put them on the pathway to joining a professional football club.

During a typical one week course players will focus on:

  • Ball Mastery, Running with the ball & Dribbling
  • Passing/Receiving and Receiving to turn
  • Shooting from short and long distance
  • Defending/Tackling/Marking
  • Aerial control, heading and Goalkeeping
  • Developing Social/Physical/Technical/Psychological awareness
  • Understanding tactics, formations and styles of play
