Choose the Best Football/Soccer Academy: England vs. Spain

Looking to find the right soccer/football academy? Congratulations! You’ve found it. EduKick International Football Academies offers two exciting opportunities for great soccer training and a solid academic program. Here are some notes to help you make the best choice.

England

  • Located in Manchester, England
  • Focus on Fitness and Speed
  • Professional Trials Available
  • Plenty of Academic Options

England Football Academy Training

English football matches are both faster and more physical than soccer games elsewhere in the football-playing world. There are four things that most English coaches ask us about when it comes to players: attitude, athleticism, ability with the football, and commitment.

With English football training, upper body and core strength are key. English players tend to be stronger, so start strength training now for these intense physical matches.

In addition to building your strength, also work on your speed, agility, and endurance. This will prepare you for the fast and furious pace of English football.

Spain

  • Located in Madrid, Spain
  • Focus on Technique and Footwork
  • Individual Coaching
  • Private Gym “Strength and Conditioning” program

Spanish Football Academy Training

For football academies in Spain, precision and speed are a lot more important than power, and training involves team-oriented and tactical skills. It’s important for players to be aware of their surroundings and know where teammates are on the field.

For players considering a Spanish international football academy, one thing is most important: a love of the game. According to Nacho Mallo, the head coordinator at EduKick Madrid, players with a passion for football are the ones who are going to improve the most.

“All that passion they have, they’ll find a way to express it here,” Mallo said. “We care about all the technical things, so it’s a good place for anyone who’s a more technical player. They will enjoy Spanish football.”

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 England: How Do Host Homes Really Work?

Getting excellent soccer training, the best coaching, a specialized fitness plan, and a great education sounds like an easy decision to make. But we know it can be hard to envision yourself really living in another country.

Questions like: Where will I study? What will I eat? What if I want to go out? and many more can cause prospective students to shy away from making the best decision of their lives.

And while it’s true that dedicating to an overseas soccer academy can be a difficult step, a little information can erase that problem. That’s why our directors have put together this video following one of our student-players, JP, through his life living with a host family in England.

Watch the video below to reveal the best chance you have at working to make your dreams a reality. Not only are his accomodations, security and comfort taken into account, his host family shows genuine appreciation for their charge and enjoys the opportunity to support a young athlete in training.

After that, take a moment to listen to our Director of EduKick Manchester, and decide if our soccer academy in Manchester, England, might be right for you.

Find out what living in Manchester is really like.

Real Madrid overcame on penalties when they eventually beat out Atlético Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final for the second time in three seasons.

“Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a quiet match by his high standards, scored the decisive spot kick after Juanfran had hit the base of the post with the eighth attempt of the shoot-out. Substitute Yannick Carrasco’s 79th-minute equaliser cancelled out a first-half strike by Sergio Ramos, whose own – last-gasp – leveller against the Rojiblancos had forced extra time in Lisbon two years ago.” – UEFA.com

Javi and his brother Nacho Mallo are both Directors of EduKick Madrid, Spain programs, and we’re happy to have them. This is the excellent coaching we offer at all our venues!

This is an exciting time for our Madrid Academy!
