The camps run from 9am-3pm and are charged at £35 per day or £28 a day if block booking.
We welcome enquiries at any time during the season so please get in touch to find out more about Barnes Eagles FC, Performance Football Camps or to arrange a free first training session for your child. We look forward to hearing from you!
We deliver our weekly football training sessions around a carefully crafted age-appropriate programme. Each week we aim to develop the core fundamentals of dribbling, passing, shooting, receiving, defending and team play. The sessions are delivered by our experienced, FA qualified coaches that:
Build confidence through a foundation of skills such as dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting
Use fun activities that build fundamental movement skills such as agility, balance, coordination, and speed
Promote decision-making, creativity and resilience through small sided games
Advance tactical understanding such as creating space and decision making in game realistic scenarios
Develop the thinking of ‘When’, ‘Where’ and ‘How’ to perform skills, and to understand attacking and defending principles
