EduKick Manchester programs are a complete package of international travel, English cultural exposure, English language study & immersion, academic study and professional soccer training. We are fully committed to the development on and off the field of the student players who attend our Academy programs.

EduKick Manchester staff is committed to maximizing each and every student player’s soccer career potential. Throughout the academic year our players are given quality and measured exposure in front of our many partner UK clubs as well as via participation in scheduled national soccer pro trials. Every player will meet and be guided by our partner trials company Head of Player Placement, Tony Awor, a FIFA licensed player agent who has links with a huge number of UK and international clubs at every level. Tony communicates regularly with team managers, heads of recruitment and heads of academies to ensure that all our players have the best possible opportunity to show case their skills at the highest possible level.

EduKick strongly believes that living, studying and training in a foreign country is an invaluable experience that a player will never forget and the benefits of such an experience will be embedded positively into that individual for the rest of his or her life. EduKick Manchester staff, keenly aware of the challenges that our boarding school presents to our players, are fully committed to our players’ overall education through our soccer development and language immersion program. Our commitment to close monitoring every player’s academic progress is what leads to our superb published examination results. With access to our in-house University Placement Service counseling, every EduKick Manchester student player’s academic future is equally well looked after.

Who may participateLiving, playing soccer and studying in England as a teenager or young adult represents an enormous challenge for both the participant and the educators and host families (who are responsible for the player’s education and general welfare).

From the participant courage, effort and character are required to succeed. From the EduKick Manchester staff, it demands professional guidance, supervision, mentorship and expertise in order to provide the required level of service to our young players.

Manchester, England Soccer Training

England Soccer Academies Training with Manchester City

The goal of EduKick Manchester is to work with players on every aspect of their training to ensure they develop the physical, technical, tactical and mental foundation required for optimum performance during trial opportunities and matches in front of professional club scouts and coaches. This is accomplished through coaching and training in advanced strength and conditioning techniques, uniquely integrated with mental, nutritional and sports medical principles all enhanced by the environment and high tech facilities. The daily training sessions take place each afternoon at the EduKick Manchester training facility with the Edukick Manchester UEFA A-licensed Technical Director/Head coach.

Exposure to professional clubs is provided on a constant basis throughout the duration of our Edukick Manchester Academy programs in the following 3 key waysEngland Soccer Training with Manchester England

  1. Competitive Friendly matches – On a weekly basis the EduKick Manchester squad will play matches against professional and semi-professional club youth academy or development squads or against local North West College teams whose coaches are also scouts for professional and semi-professional clubs. These matches provide a regular opportunity for participants to showcase their talents directly and indirectly to clubs. Follow up matches are often organized later in the season so the clubs and College scouts can measure the progress of our participants. These fixtures also allow the players the opportunity to put into practice the work they have done in training sessions and are followed up with squad meetings to review performance and progression.

    • There are two(2)categories of fixtures:
    • development fixtures - All available players receive equal playing time and exposure
    • Target fixtures - A squad is selected based upon performance in previous training sessions and development games. Thus encourages the players to work hard to be selected just as they would in the professional game.

  2. Professional Club guest coaching sessions – EduKick Manchester has affiliations with many professional clubs in the North West of England and each month the EduKick Manchester squad will receive two guest coaching sessions from professional club coaches. One session will take place at the EduKick Manchester Training complex and the second follow up session will take place at the facilities of the professional club. It is important that our participants are exposed to all levels of the professional game in England and these sessions help our participants to measure their ability levels with those required of a professional club Academy player as well as providing them with a direct trial exposure opportunity. The guest sessions will be conducted by a selection of the following EduKick Manchester affiliate professional clubs:

    • Blackburn Rovers FC (Championship)
    • Wigan Athletic FC (Championship)
    • Burnley FC (Championship)
    • Blackpool FC (Championship)
    • Preston North End FC (League 1)
    • Oldham Athletic FC (League 1)
    • Bury FC ((League 1)
    • Fleetwood Town FC (League 2)
    • Rochdale FC (League 2)
    • Morecambe FC (League 2)
    • Accrington Stanley FC (League 2)
    • Stockport County FC (Blue Square North)

  3. Open trials – All EduKick Manchester participants are entered into open trial events that take place in the North West during the Winter, Spring and fall (Autumn) seasons. We have carefully selected and partnered with a well-respected and ethically minded UK national scouting/trials organization to give our participants the maximum opportunity to expose their talents in front of the invited professional & semi-professional club scouts & coaches. In the weeks leading up to the open trials event our participants will be visited by one of the national scouting/trials organization coaches who will deliver a guest coaching session and ensure all our participants are ready and prepared for the trial. At the end of the open trial event each Edukick Manchester participant will receive direct feedback from the national scouting/trials organization coaching staff. The coaching staff is all highly qualified and the head coach in attendance at the open trial event will hold a UEFA Pro license which is the highest level coaching qualification in the world so the coaching and feedback each participant receives is of the highest caliber. During the following week after the event EduKick will be contacted by the national scouting/trials organization to arrange individual follow up trials for selected participants.

    The national scouting/trials organization will also have their own Head of Player Placement who is a full time FA licensed and FIFA registered agent in attendance at the open trial events who because of the nature of the partnership with EduKick Manchester will evaluate all of our participants and will use his own extensive network of professional clubs to recommend and arrange individual trials for those participants who show the required ability level to succeed at premiership, championship, league 1 & 2 or semi-professional.

    The Edukick Manchester coaching and management staff have regular contact with the trials organization providing their coaches and scouts with regular progress reports on each EduKick Manchester participant throughout their stay at the Academy not just on the trial days. This provides a competitive advantage for EduKick Manchester participants when they attend the trial events as they are already known to the coaches and scouts.

    Trial program participants will train daily during week#1 at the EduKick Manchester training facility with the Edukick Manchester UEFA A-licensed Technical Director/Head coach in preparation for the Open trial event which will take place at the beginning of week# 2 in front of professional club scouts and coaches. Participants will then continue training during week # 2 and individual trials at professional clubs will be arranged during week # 2 for those selected at the open trial event.
