EduKick Manchester, a leading residential English Soccer and Education Academy is open to new student-athletes for the 2015-2016 academic year season.
Last year, more than 30 student-athletes between the ages of 13 and 22 joined EduKick Manchester International Football Academy from 21 different countries like Mauritius, Tanzania, Mexico, Australia and the USA. At EduKick Manchester, players from around the world live like professionals, studying and training daily under the supervision of our teachers and coaches.
“Football training, academic standards, and language study are the three keys that make our program a continued success,” says Joey Bilotta, President of EduKick International Football Academies. “We believe that these students have a dream, and that we can encourage them to build a foundation that supports whatever that dream becomes.”
EduKick Manchester ‘s unique location close to many of the countries professional club allows us to offer their student-athletes exposure to career athletes, coaches and directors.
To further the students training, the Academy Director regularly brings in guest coaches and speakers from clubs. Regular visits to clubs for matches, guest training sessions, stadium tours plus question and answer sessions with key club officials allows participants to get a unique insight into the professional and semi-professional game.
One feature the directors are most proud of is their ability to offer professional trial events to increase exposure for each student.
“We are all so proud of each student who participates in a pro trial in Europe,” says Bilotta. “Being invited to these professional trials is a testament to their dedication and to the great work of our EduKick technical football coaches.”
EduKick considers education to be fundamentally tied to all aspects of success in life. “We believe that an awareness of other cultures, peoples, and languages benefits each student directly in the game of soccer and in life,” Bilotta offers. “That’s why we incorporate language training into every program and course we offer.”
Each student-athlete can spend 15 hours per week learning English with the highly rated International House Manchester. Younger players study a minimum of 5 IGCSE subjects over a two-year period, enabling them to progress to A-level courses.
