Hearts Academy: Summer Camp

17th May 2018

The Summer Camp gives players the chance to hone their skills at the Hearts Academy.

Following the excellent response to previous Hearts Academy Camps, the Hearts Academy is delighted to announce Summer Camp dates.

Open to talented youngsters between the ages of 5 and 12, the Summer 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 young players.

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. 

Both camps will run from 10am to 3pm at the Hearts Academy on the following dates:

  • July Camp

9th, 10th, 12th and 13th July 

  • August Camp

6th, 7th, 9th and 10th August

Each session is priced at £25.00 per day or £90 for all four days (1 camp).
