We are back! Summer Camp and Weekly Training!
Hi Everyone 😊
Last Friday, The FA lifted restrictions on football and the whole country are now allowed to train "competitively" and we have the green light to start matches when we wish to. This means no more social distancing during training and matches ⚽️
We are over the moon about this as I am sure your Super Footballer will be too 😃
TRAINING FOR U8s-U11s
Your manager will be in touch (if they haven't already) very shortly about doing some form of weekly training in August in your squad. This is nothing serious, rather a tool to get the children socialising again with their team mates and to have lots of fun!
Your manager will be organising this in a local park at a convenient time for your team, and they will be leading it too, most likely just small sided games to shake off that rust that's built up for the past 4 months!
Our official club training will begin on 2nd and 3rd September, with matches due to start on 12th or 17th September 2020.
PRE SEASON SUMMER CAMP
Two days ago, I received confirmation that we are able to open our pre-season summer camp, as we did last year. Wahooooo!

Last year was a huge hit and the children loved every minute of it (our first one ever). They enjoyed 2 days of football fun, training with their team mates and our other squads, plus taking part in a guest academy session with Joe Antonelli, Crystal Palace FC Academy Coach. As well as this, they got to showcase their "Skillz" to Chelsea FC scout Fiona Armfield. This year we want to make it even better so:
We will be running our pre season SZ United FC Summer Camp:
24th - 28th August 2020
Margaret Roper Catholic Primary School, Purley (same site as Thomas More CS)
9am - 4pm (8.30am complimentary drop off)
5 full days of football fun!
£70 for the whole 5 days or £20 per day
Our daily topics include:
- Dribbling and 1v1s

- Shooting and finishing
- Small sided games day
- Challenge and tournament day

Speaking to a number of parents it seems lots of our footballers have been stuck at home throughout the pandemic, so we feel this is going to be an awesome week for all involved. Not only will they get to train and meet their new team mates, but they will get to play football in the nice weather (fingers crossed), sharpening their football skills, whilst most importantly - HAVING FUN! Something that has been forgotten about since the season was abruptly ended. And instead of just two days, they can now enjoy 5 whole days!
It would be great to see you there! Whilst we recommend booking for the entire week and have a big discount on doing so, we have given you the option of booking individual days too.
Our Summer Camp will run in line with The FA's football guidance, and will be risk assessed in line with COVID-19.
This is exclusive to SZ United FC footballers. They will enjoy an action packed day of football fun under the guidance of our Level 2 and Uefa B licensed coaches.
Our days include:
- Awesome warm up games
- Technical games
- Skill based games
- In house tournaments

We are so glad to be back and can't wait to see you!
