Are you and your kids in a football fever, too? And not just during the big championships? Then holidays with a football academy are the perfect thing for you. You can find all the information about family football holidays at various holiday destinations in this blog article.
What is a football academy?
A football academy is all about improving ball technique, fitness and team spirit – but with lots of fun. For several hours a day, participants practice passing, dribbling, strategy and fitness with trained coaches. A football academy can be for adults or children, for beginners and advanced players, at home or on holiday with overnight accommodation.
What does “family holiday with football academy” mean?
A family holiday with a football academy or a football camp for families means that you do not send your child away alone, but that everyone spends the holiday together as a family. The difference is that at least one of the children attends a football academy for a few hours a day. Ideally, this is attached to the hotel or accommodation and the football sessions can be booked individually as part of the holiday. The advantages are that everyone gets a holiday to their own taste and at the same time the football-loving offspring can concentrate completely on their hobby in beautiful surroundings.
What do you do at a football academy?
In a football camp, the participants learn all the techniques, tricks and tips in the game of football from trained coaches. They train their fitness and speed and learn to play together as a team. In contrast to football training in everyday life, participants in a football academy have time and opportunity to make great progress with individual supervision or in small groups. With like-minded people, training and playing at a football academy is twice as much fun. A football academy is for football players what a language course is for language fans – you are really flashed afterwards.
