The Individuals that set UK Football Camp apart from other camps...



UK Football Camps provide a player to coach ratio which is better than that required by the FA. This is to ensure that your child receives the best possible group coaching experience with a one-to-one feel.

The Senior Coaches hand pick coaching teams directly from a list of FA registered coaches and ensure that they are all:
  • FA qualified to the required level
  • Up to date CRB/DBS checked
  • FA First Aid certificated
  • Specialised in chosen age group
All our coaches must also hold the necessary skills to provide the very best modern coaching techniques and be able to implement the structured UK Football Camps syllabus to the highest of standards. As well as being great coaches, it's of equal importance that they can implement a lot of fun to the program.

For his age, Sam is a very experienced coach. He specialises in pre-school and reception age groups and his FA based coaching sessions are very much fun orientated.

Brad joined the UKFC team in 2016 as a helper and quickly elevated himself to leader of the work experience team at camp. He’s been a regular at camp and hates missing an opportunity to help youngsters develop their skills. Energetic and bubbly, Brad is one of the most asked for coaches.

He is a great role model for the groups he takes and the fun and encouragement he brings is a massive plus for the club. When Tommy isn’t coaching, he enjoys fishing - well there’s still a net of some sort involved! A good future at UKFC awaits this young coach!

Qualifications:

Robbie

Assistant Coach


We fast tracked Robbie into his FA Level 1 as we felt he was ready! He has a great report with the kids he works with and is always encouraging them to improve. His other passion is drama and this is evident to see whilst he coaches – which is actually a great attribute in showing different methods of coaching. We look forward to seeing his coaching develop under the guidance of UKFC.

Qualifications:

Joseph

Assistant Coach


Joe joined UKFC and quickly became one of the most popular helpers on the team. The kids listen to him and want to be like him, which makes him a great role UKFC role model. He captains his club and school teams and his leadership skills are clear to see at camp and whilst helping each week at the academy. Joe enjoys all competitive sport and was awarded a ‘Special Achievement’ award for PE at Becket Keys, where he studied GCSE’S. It’s a shame he’s not old enough to obtain his FA Level 1 yet, but certainly one to watch for the future of UKFC!

Callum

Assistant Coach


Callum started with the UKFC camps team and is a highly respected assistant coach by all of us at UKFC. His professionalism and organisation skills really get the attention of the kids he helps and he’s a great role model to follow. Callum always acts on his own initiative without having to ask - as he’s already done it already! It’s just a shame his number one sport is Basketball and not football!
