Lessons on attacking crosses, building out from the back and passing long from the back are integrated into the programme, aimed at enriching participants' understanding of strategic play and team dynamics.
Participants will also have the opportunity to live the life of a professional soccer player during the winter at our premium football facility in Harrow International School Bangkok. This includes intense training sessions, nutritious meals to fuel performance and adequate rest periods for recovery and rejuvenation.
