Psychologist Provides Online Coaching For Edukick Squad

Yesterday we were contacted by top Mental Performance Consultant., Mark Bowden, offering all EduKick Football Soccer Academy players free access to his ground breaking football mindset app TopForm, “Use Your Brain To Raise Your Game.”

Mark wrote:

Whilst everyone is going through this down time, I’ve been looking to give something back and help players with both their progress and their mental health whilst we are all going through this.

Bowden is an experienced Mental Performance Consultant, working with over 200 pro-players, mainly at Premier League and Championship level. Mark’s best selling book is titled “Use Your Brain – Raise Your Game – The Professional Footballer’s Guide to Peak Performance” and it has become a pro-footballers’ bible. He helps these elite level footballers to play at their best by utilizing the immense power of their mind. He now wants to help young international players at EduKick Football Soccer Academy to achieve the very same gains.

Mark says that professional footballers spend their lives training and improving their ability. But, he believes that it isn’t actually their ability that ultimately holds them back. It’s being able to perform to this ability consistently using their mind, and this is where Mark’s app comes into play.

The App takes players through mental training for peak performance at different stages. Pregame preparation and focus, postgame focus and pregame conditioning. This gradually helps players reprogram how they mentally approach all aspects of their game.

When Mark says:

We’re going to bounce back from this, football once again will be something that is a huge part of our lives again. But, in the meantime let us make this a more positive experience for the players.

At EduKick Football Soccer Academy we are now going to provide all our players with the App and help them to get the most from it as we guide them through the current challenges. With the invaluable practical help, experience and generosity of professionals like Mark, our players will continue to develop and grow.

Koki Defeats The Odds To Win Mentoring By Top Japanese Footballer

15 year old EduKick Football Soccer Academy student, Koki, has been accepted by Japanese football legend, Keisuke Honda’s debut mentorship program!

Last December, Honda announced via his Twitter account, that he was accepting applications for his new online mentoring program. Over 20,000 players responded with just 20 places being available. Koki applied and was so excited to recently learn that he had been accepted onto the program!

The program will provide mentorship to young Japanese players who hope to play professional football in future. The students are assigned a training assistant who advises them and gives them both physical and mental training assignments to complete. These students will be in direct contact with Honda two or three times a month. Koki already has already been set his first assignment and is raring to go.

EduKick Football Soccer Academy Director of Football, Mick Brennan, said:

Koki has clearly impressed Honda with his application. Watching Koki develop at EduKick Football Soccer Academy makes it easy to see why he has been selected. I’m sure that this direct link with such an influential and experienced player will only further boost Koki’s motivation and dedication. We all wish him well.

Saranga’s U.S. University Soccer Success

Saranga joined the EduKick Football Soccer Academy in 2017, moving from his home country of India, to pursue his dream. He was always one of the most committed players, working hard every day to develop his skills. Saranga always clearly understood that his coaches’ feedback, plus what he learned from his teammates, was making him a better player.

During his time at EduKick Football Soccer Academy Saranga won a number of awards for his performance and effort. He was awarded  “Player of the Month” as well as an end of season award. In short, he was a key member of the squad for two years.

Whilst with EduKick Football Soccer Academy, Saranga attended a trial day with “Soccer Assist”. EduKick Football Soccer Academy partnered with “Soccer Assist” to give the players opportunities to study and play soccer for a US college or university whilst receiving a scholarship. This particularly suited Saranga, being both a good  A-level student and committed to his football. Ater working with Tyrelle from “Soccer Assist” he soon received a number of offers from good US universities.

By now, Saranga has just finished his first semester with Monroe College and has had a really successful start to his time in the USA. With 36 players on the roster at the college, Saranga has featured in the first team and was one of the 24 squad members selected to travel to Tyler in Texas for the NJCAA National Championship Tournament. With a fantastic unbeaten record, he and his team brought home the title for Monroe College for the first time in the team’s history, a fantastic achievement.

Mick Brennan, EduKick Football Soccer Academy Director of football said:

This is just a fantastic success story for Saranga. He was always one of the stand out players on the EduKick Football Soccer Academy Ellesmere programme with his determination, drive and commitment. He was one of those players that just knew he could achieve and as a coach you just want to help a player with drive and attitude like that as much as you can. I’m  delighted for him with the progress that Saranga has made.

Edukick Player Studies A levels

Daniel is a 16-year-old football student from Nigeria who studies for his A levels at Abbey College Manchester. Every morning and every afternoon he trains hard with EduKick Football Soccer Academy Football Academy, and has really taken ownership of the routine since enrollment. Daniel has enjoyed learning from coaches and has watched as his fitness and game improve! Daniel believes that the coaches have helped his most football technique: close control, close passing and long passing.

Excited about his training sessions, Daniel has said that the sessions with Darren Fletcher (Ex Manchester United midfielder), at an MUFC training center have helped him greatly:

The experience has been amazing. Going to the training center where people that have trained there have gone on to go pro. And I had the privilege to train there. So, that’s amazing.

Daniel is doing a great job in his first year, and we can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for him.

Edukick Invests In GPS Performance Tracker

We are excited to announce the arrival of our new performance monitoring vests! This will allow our coaches to track the performance of individual players: total distance, top speed, power plays and sprint distance. Our coaches will see the key aspects of our players’ fitness and track their progress as they improve.

The players wear a GPS tracker, held in place in a lightweight tech vest, which then monitors various data fields whilst tracking the player’s exact location. All the tracking data is then uploaded and assimilated online then fed back to the Coach’s app for interpretation and analysis.

Heat maps show where our players have spent the most time on the pitch or training field or where they’ve hit their highest speeds, giving our coaches better tactical insights. Also, players will now receive personalized sports science and nutrition advice, after a match or training session, to help them improve between games. Coach Chris Honor has instigated individual fitness testing for the squad and is already seeing considerable improvements from the players as a result.

Coach Chris is very excited about the arrival of the PLAYR system and says the following:

The performance system will provide the EduKick Football Soccer Academy coaching team with invaluable information on each individual player, such as how much ground they cover in a match and heart rate monitoring. We can then use this information to analyze the player’s performance and provide them with feedback. This will also help us to implement specialist fitness programming for each individual player. Also, it will help us to identify trends across the player positions which will be vital in helping us understand the player better, so that we can get the very best out each one.

This innovation is just the start of Coach Chris’ ambitious plans for the new term / courses starting on Monday 13th January 2020, as he helps the coaching team implement a fully comprehensive fitness improvement, monitoring and recording system.

EduKick Football Soccer Academy player Aykhan was spotted by a Rovers’ scout at our recent showcase event on Monday 21, October. He’s now attending a trial at the English Championship club, Blackburn Rovers FC.

Director of Football, Mick Brennan, was very proud to take Aykhan up to the Rovers training ground at Brockhall Blackburn, especially because Mr. Brennan has ties with the club.

Getting this type of opportunity is great for our young players. It allows them to see first hand how they measure up against the best young football talents in the UK right now. Academy places are few and far between, young players work very hard to show they have got what it takes.” Said Brennan.

Aykhan is enrolled full-time at Abbey College Manchester, studying for his GCSEs. He has been living and studying in Manchester since September this year and trains 3 times per week with the EduKick Football Soccer Academy squad.
