About the school

Long description: EduKick believes that living, studying and training in a foreign country is an invaluable experience that a player will never forget and the benefits of such an experience will be embedded positively into that individual for the rest of his or her life. EduKick staff, keenly aware of the challenges that our soccer boarding school academies presents to our players, are fully committed to our players’ overall education through our soccer development and language immersion programs. Living, playing soccer and studying
in a different country as a teenager or young adult represents an enormous challenge for both the participant and the educators. From the participant courage, effort and character are required to succeed.
From the EduKick staff, it demands professional guidance, supervision, mentorship and expertise in order to provide the required level of service needed for our players to succeed and benefit invaluably from their experience abroad with us. At EduKick, we aim to deliver that service and more. High School academics or sports science courses taught by highly qualified coaches and teachers with evening cultural activities and weekend trips to popular tourist attractions and historical destinations.

Currently, EduKick hosts 8 Soccer & Education Academies on three continents and continues to grow on a global scale each year.
EduKick programs attract a diverse mix of students from all around the world. Students represent a wide variety of nations from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas.

EduKick Academies offer both High School & Language immersion programs. These unique programs coincide with the regular academic year, beginning in September and ending in mid-June of the following year. Half-Year program begins in January and ends in June.
EduKick programs expose players to high-level technical soccer training that is designed to be intense, educational and progressive…but also fun. Players attend 2-3 hours of structured, professionally run training sessions daily (Monday – Friday).
EduKick soccer training sessions give specific attention to conditioning and fitness but the main priority is on individual ball skill and technical development/enhancement. EduKick's worldwide programs are affiliated with professional soccer clubs, coaches, schools and academies. Our technical coaching staff are seasoned FIFA (Federation International Futbol Association) licensed coaches and often former professional players. EduKick coaching staff understands participants attend the programs to learn and become better players. Our coaches are committed to providing quality and enthusiastic technical expertise to ensure that our participants develop as soccer players.

Dorm Facilities: EduKick programs use either 3 star hotels, sports complexes, dormitories or homestay to accommodate participants. A safe and secure environment is provided with all of the comforts and conveniences that are required by international students.
Each academy location has its own style of accommodation depending on the particular program the participant is interested to join. Please contact us for more program specific accommodation information. Accommodation is based upon double occupancy (single rooms available at some locations for an additional fee) and students are assigned to rooms based upon gender and age. Male and female participants occupy separate rooming areas and at no time are they allowed to enter a room of the opposite gender. Violation of this rule can result in expulsion.
We do accept rooming requests but cannot guarantee we will be able to accommodate them but we will try our best.
Students are responsible for the maintenance of their own room at all times and ensuring that their valuables are secure. Each program location will have its own residence accommodation rules that will be presented to each participant upon arrival. Participants are required to act in a responsible manner at all times while moving in and around the residence facility.
Rooms are typically cleaned daily by residence accommodation staff and towels/linen changed 3 times per week or more frequent. Participants must keep their rooms tidy to allow the cleaning staff to clean and change towels/laundry. Participant’s rooms that are untidy will not be cleaned by staff until the participant has sufficiently tidied to allow cleaning staff to conduct their job efficiently.
