• SZ United FC


Hi All :) How's everyone summers going? Bookings are coming in for the Summer Football Camp we are running on 24th - 28th August. As our footballers have missed out on so much football, this is going to be a great week to get prepared for the season ahead!

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

Due to everything that is going on in the world and what the news is reporting at present, we wanted to reassure you of how seriously we are and will be taking our footballers safety during the football camp week. Please see below:

  • If you book and we have to cancel due to COVID-19 e.g. a lockdown is put in place, you will receive a full refund for your booking.

  • The days will take place outdoors, with breaks and lunch had outside too (we have classrooms indoors if weather is really bad)

  • We are following The FA's guidelines which means we can now have contact training, BUT we will still be promoting social distancing during break and lunch times, plus no hi5s or celebrations in teams (we've got cool ways of adapting this 😉)

  • Groups will be kept no bigger than 15 with the same coach for the day / and where possible, the week

  • We have a one way system in place for parent and player entry and exit, including contactless sign in and sign out procedure

  • Hand sanitiser is readily available and all footballers will be asked to use this in-between actiivites

  • Toilets are cleaned 3 times a day, and equipment is not shared between groups. Equipment is cleaned down twice a day

Through our work with Superstar Campz (Coach Ash's other company) this summer (which has approx. 45 children attending), we have been following and implementing strict Government guidelines for running summer camps to help keep the site and our children safe. We will be using the exact same methods to keeping our SZ United FC footballers safe during our very own summer week too!



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 like we did last year, they can now enjoy 5 whole days! 

Our daily topics include:

- Dribbling and 1v1s

- Passing and 2v1s, 2v2s, 3v2s

- Shooting and finishing

- Small sided games day

- Challenge and tournament day

Our days include:

- Awesome warm up games

- Technical games

- Skill based games

- In house tournaments

- Challenges

We are also trying to arrange for our friends at our Premier League football clubs to join us throughout the week too! Last year we had Crystal Palace academy coach Joe Antonelli join us, plus Fiona Armfield from Chelsea FC!

All bookings need to be made by Friday 14th August 2020 as we need a longer period of time to plan our sessions and groups due to COVID-19!

We cant wait to see you again (and we look forward to nutmegging a few our footballers too ⚽️😉)
