Hearts Academy Easter Camp

22nd February 2018

The Hearts Academy Easter Camp gives players the chance to hone their skills at the HMFC Academy

Following the excellent response to the Hearts Soccer Academy Half Term Camp, the Hearts Academy is delighted to announce the Easter Camp.

Open to talented youngsters between the ages of 5 and 12, the Easter Camp offers the opportunity to learn to play the Hearts way.

Delivered by Hearts Academy Coaches and overseen by Darren Murray, Head of Coach Education at the Academy, each session will be based on the BOX Soccer Training model.

The innovative BOX Soccer Training set-up structure delivers everything from individual skill drills to position specific and group practices – creating a stimulating, memorable environment for the development of the young player.

The purpose is to technically develop young players by obtaining high repetitions, more touches of the ball with growing intensity and real pressure – with reference to time, space & direction. In recent years, Box Soccer Training has played a key role in developing Hearts star John Souttar’s abilities.

Over the course of four days, players will receive expert coaching through individual and group sessions. In addition to receiving invaluable advice and feedback from Hearts Academy Coaches, players will also benefit from the insights of former Hearts U20s coach Darren Murray, who has spent the past two years working as head of Box Soccer.

This is another unique opportunity to step inside the Hearts Academy and take the step up to the next level in the same environment that has helped develop a host of Hearts first team players. 

Limited spaces are now available for the following dates:

  • Monday April 2nd (10am – 3pm)
  • Tuesday April 3rd (10am – 3pm)
  • Thursday April 5th (10am – 3pm)
  • Friday April 6th (10am – 3pm)

Each session is priced at £22.50 per day or £80 for all four days. For further details please contact or phone 07533 287 550.

The Academy have recently announced a series of masterclass sessions aimed at developing young players.

As well as developing technical skills, these sessions will incorporate and focus on key values - these evening sessions take place over five weeks and are suitable for a wide range of ages and audience.
