BSS Football Academy



During sessions for the youngest kids we use their natural predisposition for having a spontaneous, joyful approach to football. Classes for this age group focus on coordination and improving overall fitness levels. Moreover, as early as at this stage, we recognize individual talents and work towards letting them shine.


In this age group children learn football mostly through activities and games making them familiar with basic techniques. Controlling the ball, dribbling, observation skills, spatial orientation, shots, and making independent decisions on the spot are some of the key abilities we hone at this level.


Brazilian Soccer Schools classes for kids in the oldest group focus on mastering the technique. We strive to make our players two-footed and fast, we develop their spatial orientation, and work on changing the tempo and direction of the game. We incorporate the fundamentals of teamwork into the training – we adopt multiple systems of play: from 1 on 1 to 7 on 7.

Brazilian soccer for kids

Futebol de Salão (FDS)

Brazilian Soccer Schools offer children an all-round preparation for further football experiences. Thanks to using special heavier balls with less bounce, our players get 600% more contact with the ball than those using a regular football. A BSS player who has completed all training stages enjoys the game, displays technical skills on various levels of football craftsmanship, is able to make informed and effective decisions on the field. They are mentally prepared for tackling complex, tactical problems and ready for competing in the next stages of their sports development.

Here’s what others have to say

I cannot believe what I see with Brazilian Soccer Schools and SOCATOTS, it is amazing and it is something completely different and very special. It will have so many benefits for football and for kids in general. Socially, physically and technically I can see this, having such a positive influence for future generations across the world.

The whole Futebol de Salão thing really interests me because it is a different way of teaching kids to play the game. They’ve been doing it in Brazil for years and they are one of the best teams in the world, so there must be something in it for England, it could well be the way forward.

You have rescued the game of Futebol de Salão. So many players who I played with would be interested in the fact you have done this. We still enjoy playing it, but in Brazil we can’t even buy a ball, FIFA have ruined the game with a bouncing and a high ball.

Brazilian Soccer Schools and SOCATOTS are tremendous, both are a great way to get children started with exercise, and it is so much fun and incredibly positive. I do think children need to do more exercise in general and this is a super way to begin. I think SOCATOTS and Brazilian Soccer Schools are a country mile beyond anything else out there and Devon (my son) has been a SOCATOT from seven months. It’s never too young for them to start learning. If children can start young and enjoy playing and exercising I am sure they will stay involved with sports throughout their lives.

Brazilian Soccer Schools gave me a great introduction to my coaching career and allowed me to remain open minded about many things within the game. This together with Socatots is a great concept and route for young coaches to take into the game. From a personal point of view working within a franchise also allowed me to experience many other important things such as building up my hours working with children at the grassroots level, acting as a mentor for them as well running the business side of things such as marketing and taking responsibility for my own schedule of classes.
