International Student-Footballers from around the world arrived this week to EduKick International Football Academies in USA, Spain, England and France for year-long Academic Soccer Academy Courses.
EduKick International Football Academies (EIFA) offer academic year soccer academy programs in England, Spain, Italy, France, Brazil, Mexico, Canada and the USA. Soccer players from 13-22 years of age spend an entire academic year (9 months) abroad studying and training daily under EduKick’s professional coaches and affiliated football clubs.
In England EduKick has 28 international student-players from 18 different countries assembling at their unique soccer and education academy in Manchester. The EduKick Manchester players all follow an academic pathway, English as a Second Language (ESL) for the non-English speaking students or BTEC Sport Science coursework for the Native English speaking participants. Students train daily for two hours under the MCFC Football Development Team at Platt Lane, the academy training grounds of Manchester City Football Club.
In Madrid, EduKick currently has some 16 players from 8 different countries. Non-Spanish speaking players at EduKick Madrid study Spanish Language at their affiliated language institute, International House. Spanish speaking players also have the option of attending the EduKick Madrid affiliated Colegio (High School), Rosa Chacel, located just outside Madrid in Colmenar Viejo. At the Madrid venue, EduKick footballers train daily under professional Spanish coaches and are also inserted onto a local Madrid area Spanish youth club team for additional training and matches.
Other international student-footballers also arrived recently at EduKick France and EduKick USA venues where they will reside for the next nine months studying full-time and developing their soccer skills and knowledge through daily progressive soccer training.
With the year-long academy players now arrived and settling into their new lifestyles as international student-soccer players abroad, EduKick now opens enrollment for their Half-Year registrations. The Half-Year Courses, for players interested in attending for six months only, begins in January 2013 and finishes at the end of May 2013.
