Brazilian Soccer Schools (BSS) is one of the largest grassroots football training organisations in the world. We attribute our success and popularity with children to our structured approach to training and proprietary syllabus of 200+ individual core movements and skills. We teach our players to initially focus on acquiring their individual all round technique and mastery of the ball. As they mature mentally and physically, their training will start to incorporate tactics as well as the physical and mental chapters of our training programme. We have never bought into the myth of natural talent or overnight success, what we do believe in is hard work, perseverance and practice. Our philosophy is that through an increased number of training hours involving constant repetition players can refine and improve their skills in all areas of the game.
Coaches have to undertake and pass a training course run by the ICFDS head office. These are held at least once a year. On passing the course the coach also needs to ensure that they have a current Police Clearance Certificate and a First Aid qualification. In addition coaches will be subject to regular annual competency tests as well online e-learning seminars on key parts of our operations manual.
Yes of course and some venues may run girls only classes. In fact, BSS is a perfect program for girls, especially where their love for the game needs to be converted into participation.
Yes once the child has been registered with the coach and their contact details are up to date they can be absent during the class.
