18 Jan 2017

Pupils from Barnard Castle School and children from across the North East are to get the chance to hone their football skills with coaches from the Paris Saint-Germain Academy England.
The Academy, in collaboration with language camp company ACCORD ISS, is partnering with the School to offer players the opportunity to train like the first team of the famous French club, using PSG training methods and techniques and learning the values and on-pitch philosophy of the club.
The PSG Academy England will run at Barnard Castle School this Easter from April 10th-14th with full day sessions running from 9am-5pm.
The Academy is for both boys and girls aged 8-17 and all abilities are welcome.
The cost of the week is £250 although a discount of £50 has been negotiated for Barnard Castle School pupils. Alternatively, children can book for single days at a cost of £60 per day.
The Academy includes:
• Full training programme designed by PSG;
• Coaching delivered by PSG trained coached from the PSG Academy in Paris, assisted by FA qualified coaches;
• Full Nike Paris Saint-Germain Academy England kit;
• Progress and development report;
• Certificate;
• Full lunch and snacks.
The Paris Saint-Germain Academy is part of the club’s international development strategy and is a way of sharing the PSG experience with younger generations throughout the world.
Barnard Castle School is hosting the football Academy later on this year when it takes place alongside ACCORD ISS’s international language summer school.
The summer school will welcome children from all over the world so the academy will also be a full cultural experience for both the international students and English children who attend.
The summer camp will run from July 3rd -28th from 9am-5pm and will include the same features at the same price. Students also have the option of boarding at the school during the course to get the full experience.
