Brazilian Soccer School
The soccer school aims to equip local five to 16 year olds with the tactical awareness and skills that have won Brazil the World Cup on five occasions. Techniques will include those endorsed by the legendary Pelé.
Other coaching techniques used at the school include the Brazilian game of 'futebol de salão'- a game Pelé, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho played as young boys.
John Paul Considine of the Judgemeadow Football Development Centre said "This new initiative we have brought to the county means that we are now able to offer local footballers the chance to learn from the very best."
Coaching sessions are already running with one hour long sessions starting at £3.50.
Summer camp starts on 31 July and runs for four weeks.
