Club Energy and Soccer Schools are available at all our venues. Simply choose between individual days or a week at Club Energy, Soccer School or a combination of the two!

Although both courses are run separately, children from both camps will be together during the signing in and out, lunch and extended day periods.

We understand some children may find the prospect of attending anything new a bit daunting. To ease any potential worries all children are greeted at registration and introduced to the SCL team and other children through ice breaker games and a welcome talk. Children will enjoy the days programme in groups of similar ages where they can spend time with existing friends and make new ones too!


  • Packed lunch with ice pack – please ensure NO NUT PRODUCTS.
  • Snacks and non-fizzy drinks in a reusable bottle or flask.
  • Named, comfortable clothing, appropriate to the weather conditions.
  • Children attending Soccer Camp should bring trainers, football boots if they have them and wear shin pads.
