The UK Development Camp

Dynamic, accessible and enjoyable – our UK Player Development Camp gets your players and staff working face to face with ours at Staplewood, the Academy and beating heart of our Club.

Our programme is open to all – coaching the Academy Performance Plan and bringing the philosophy of Southampton FC to players of every ability.

We take a player-centred approach to everything we do with a program designed to leave your players:

- Having improved their ability and learnt new skills
- Understanding their strengths and the areas to work on
- Being ready to work hard and enjoy the game more than ever

We introduce your players to “The Southampton Way”:

- Players placed into squads grouped by age bands to map them against peers
- We instil our Ten Academy behaviours as their code of conduct

- Each player is tested and benchmarked on performance against peers
- Match day team targets and individual development plans set and integrated into the camp
- Attacking and defending set plays taught, as used by Southampton FC Academy teams
- GPS technology assesses and improves players’ movements

- A match on the last day helps consolidate the players’ learning
- We make a presentation to players on the final afternoon with each player having individual feedback
- We issue homework skills each day – with VT’s showing Academy players performing the tasks
