Manchester December Updates!

aaa2
The last week of December was full of great technique training and work. The boys did an amazing job of mastering the new skills.

Training hard.

The beginning of the week brought in the Futsal training, which is a type of ball control. It adds a great advantage on the field by using quick passes in tight areas. The Spanish academy has also had great success with this.

EduKick Manchester v. Liverpool (under 18 squad).

Later on during the week, the team started working on more communication and controlling the ball. Problems with ball possession and misunderstanding around the team have actually cost the Manchester guys four goals at the Liverpool game.
The Man of the Match was Miles Kibukosya.

Blackburn Rovers v. Huddersfield Town.

On Saturday the boys headed out to visit Ewood Park to check out the Champion fixture, the result being 1 – 1. It was a great way for the team to see the training and skill involved with playing a good game at the highest caliber.

EduKick Manchester Alumnus Scores!

Christian did very well in his schooling and returned the following year to the UK (with our partner college Myerscough) to earn his degree in sports coaching. He played with a local team in order to keep up his football training.

Soon after Christian returned home and started playing again, national selectors noticed him. The game against Canada was a great achievement for Christian, representing his home country in the game he loves.

On sharing this great news with EduKick Christian said: “This one goes for you and what I’ve learned through you guys.”

EduKick Students Meet League Founders

Soccer ClubsEdukick Manchester coaches, staff and student-players are delighted to form a new partnership with Accrington Stanley FC.
Through friend of EduKick International, Dave Bailey, Edukick Manchester has formed a great link to the professional football club, allowing Edukick Manchester student-players to get a fantastic view into the world of English football.
Accrington Stanley FC is one of the founding members of the football league!
Accrington Stanley
In fact, Accrington Stanley, one of only 12 clubs to form the football league, in 1888, has had a tough time throughout history. After a dramatic reformation of the club, in 1968, they established themselves firmly in English football.
From there they started to move up through the local non-league setup to the national non-league setup.
Then, in 2005, they won promotion back into the football league where they have been ever since. Now known as ‘The club that will never die’ Accrington Stanley is a traditional and local football club, but now with grand and glorious ideas to progress in football.
Accrington Stanley coaches will be delivering guest sessions to the Edukick Manchester players. Student-players will also have the opportunity for visits to the ground to watch the first team games, fantastic guest speakers from the club, and even more possibilities for those who show potential to train and trial with the club.
Manchester Accrington Square1
Throughout the season, Edukick Manchester will play the Accrington Stanley Academy teams too, which is a great opportunity for Head of Recruitment Dave Bailey to watch the Edukick players first hand.
Edukick & Accrington Stanley had their first success in the partnership, with Lawrence Hanna of Edukick Manchester being invited to Accrington to train with the Academy and showcase to the coaches what he can do. Hopefully later this month, Lawrence will spend time at Accrington to try to kick start his football career.

EduKick Manchester: Hearing From the Experts

Sport board500

Professional Advice

Throughout the year, our EduKick International Acadmies, including Edukick Manchester, bring in the professional people of football. The criteria for this is a successful or lifetime involvement in the sport, local coaches, staff, players and key team members who make it happen.

Do you want to learn from the experts?

Real Life Stories

In this case, we brought in Keith Rees to give real life stories and advice to the players. Keith is the Development and Recruitment Officer as well as Goalkeeper for Everton FC. He is a major participant in the English football system.
Keith spent the whole day at the school and spoke for an hour with the players. He offered them them insight into the values and ethos of the academy at Everton FC. He unfolded for them how communication works between staff and players about expectations and performance.
Pictures of our fantastic 2014/2015 year.
Neil Garside, EduKick Manchester Head Coach/BTEC Tutor, spent the last few months on these topics, so it helped to cements these principles into the minds of the student players.

Future Opportunities

As with all the experts we bring in, Keith’s wealth of knowledge brought much to the table. Not only his knowledge of the game, but also what he’s learned from his role at Everton, as an FA assessor of coaches, as a coach mentor, having worked with many top level players and working with Team GB at the Olympics.
We look forward to seeing Keith again, in 2015, as he has invited us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Academy.

Choosing a Football Academy: Academic Excellence

Academic programs
Our Academic Programs provide the students with the opportunity to continue their academic studies while working on an intense soccer training schedule through high school.
shutterstock_198771995 Register Here Today!
We offer several methods of instruction depending on the student and his or her school of choice. Distance learning continues the curriculum they have been using in school at home.
In addition to our Year-Long programs, EduKick also offers specialized training programs: Goalie training, Girls Programs, and Pro Soccer Trials.
Some students choose to immerse themselves further into the culture by attending the local high school – public or private – near the EduKick Academy they are attending.
The intent of our Academics Programs is to keep academic scores high while still pushing them to train harder for scores on the pitch.
Intercultural Competence
This is the key to the success of many of EduKick Academies’ students. The development of intercultural competence provides EduKick Academy student-players life-skills that offer benefits for them long after the program is ended for the year.
DSC08223
Intercultural competence begins with understanding and appreciating the differences in cultures. Our academies encourage the independence that travel outside of a student’s home country brings.
It also exposes them to new experiences, and the ability to navigate and communicate within another country and culture.
Often a full eighty percent of EduKick student-players are from different cultures and backgrounds. Nearly all are from a country other than the one where the academy is located.
Because of this, EduKick students have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience from the culture they are then living in as well as the cultures of their teammates.
2014 Registration Form
EduKick coaches, instructors and staff all work hard to build more into a student than great soccer skills and a solid education.
Qualities, such as self-discipline, are taught in every aspect of the program, encouraging the students see the end-game of life as well as soccer.
Through our soccer and education academies, we seek to develop character, independence and most importantly for future soccer players – intercultural competence.
