The training program focuses on producing soccer players and athletes with strong human values. Indeed, human qualities and morals are at the heart of the International Development Academy’s projects. With this in mind, here are the pillars of their program and methods:

  • Integrity: respect and compassion are crucial values for IDA coaches and will be omnipresent throughout the camp
  • Good behaviour: coaches and players alike must behave well at the camp in all circumstances and situations. It doesn’t matter if they just lost a match or the training session was particularly difficult, good behaviour is imperative.
  • Accomplishment: the coaches will push each and every camper so that they can achieve their high goals and objectives.

As well as offering summer soccer camps, IDA is a soccer academy that hosts students all year long, combining studies and the beautiful game. They have locations in five different countries across Europe and the United States and help many players every year gain scholarships for universities thanks to their soccer skills. It is a incredible springboard for many students. It is testament to their quality as a soccer academy. You can be sure that your children will be taken care of by experienced professionals in exceptional sporting facilities, in a place that is used to hosting youngsters throughout the year.

The sporting Facilities

Considering the camp takes place in the same academy that hosts young soccer players year round, your children will have access to the latest, high-quality sporting facilities. A brand-new natural grass soccer pitch has just been built, facilitating top-quality training sessions.

All the soccer pitches are equipped with video recording gear, meaning that the training sessions will be filmed. The coaches and players will then analyse the footage together, allowing for very well rounded progress.

The campers will also have access to a gym, where they will be able to reinforce the physical improvement they will be seeing thanks to their training sessions. They will also have access to other sporting facilities, such as ping-pong tables.

The International Development Academy enlists the help of nutritionists specialised in the diet of young sportsmen. The menu of balanced and nutritional meals will give the kids everything they need in terms of energy and fuel for their training sessions and progress.

As it is a crucial part of any athlete’s success, there will also be lessons on diet and nutrition at the camp.

The camp program

The essentials

  • 14 days on a sporting campus
  • 2 training sessions a day
  • Video analysis sessions
  • Soccer tournaments in the evenings
  • UEFA Pro coaches
  • 1 Nike kit provided on arrival
  • Access to all the campus infrastructure and facilities
  • Trip to London

Training

The training program at the International Development Academy is very complete and rounded. This is because it was designed and conceived by experienced coaches with UEFA Pro and UEFA A qualifications. Each player’s improvement as a soccer player is central to the camp, but it isn’t the only thing that is central. This camp is unique in its efforts to help the players progress in a mental and human sense, by pushing them to the limit with intense trainings and advanced objectives. There is a double aim at this soccer camp: to get your child to improve and progress both on the pitch and off it.

To achieve this goal, the days are divided into three separate training phases:

  • The mornings are dedicated to technical and tactical exercises. They will mostly consist of drills in tight areas with the ball
  • Early afternoons will be dedicated to muscle strengthening and reinforcing or to video analysis sessions
  • The last training sessions take place in the evening, and are completely dedicated to playing. The campers will play matches on smaller pitches or a soccer tournament will take place.

It is also possible to take part in this camp as a goalkeeper. This position is unique and, as well as the group sessions, requires more personalised and specialised sessions.

To be able to perform the video analysis sessions, all the mornings’ training sessions and the evening matches will be filmed. Your child’s performance on the pitch will be analysed, which will help them understand what areas of their game they need to improve and strengthen. This is a massive benefit of this soccer camp.

Coaches and coaching method

Stage de football Reading

The IDA soccer camps are organised and conducted by coaches with over 20 years of experience and considerable coaching qualifications, including UEFA Pro and UEFA A licenses. They possess all the qualities that UEFA requires to coach young players, and will know how to make your child improve and progress.

They are the ones who design and implement the IDA training method, based on technical and tactical training that is then applied in the evening matches. Combine that with video analysis sessions, and you have one of England’s most complete training programs. Your kids will truly live just like professional soccer players for two weeks.

Staff and activities

IDA staff will be present on the campus day and night. The campers will never be alone, and will always be taken care of by coaches or other staff members.

They will supervise the campers’ free time and will also accompany the kids on the trips. They will make sure this camp is one that your kids will never, ever forget.

Trips and days out

Soccer is at the heart of this soccer camp, but culture is also emphasised, to make sure that the campers will have non-soccer memories to bring home with them.

The most memorable trip will be to London, which is a one hour drive away from Reading. Your children will explore the exceptional city and its monuments known worldwide, such as Big Ben or Buckingham Palace. The campers will enjoy a full day in England’s capital, and there will also be a chance to do some shopping to bring back some trinkets for the family.

On top of that, the accommodation is a short walk away from Reading’s town centre, and your children will be allowed to go there in their free time. Of course, an IDA staff member will accompany them. They will therefore have the chance to explore the town filled with history and notable historical buildings.
