VDC Football - More than just football! Available for boys and girls from 7 - 14 years old
Village Camps was actually one of the pioneers of Football Camps in the region dating back to 1979 when the first programme was developed along side football legend Martin Chivers. Chivers was a top striker for the English national team (1971-1973) but began working with Village Camps in 1979 whilst playing for Servette.
Since its creation, the Village Camps football programme has continued to evolve in the various residential programmes run across the world and is now back at the Village Day Camp (VDC) in Coppet. Campers who opt for the VDC Football programme will partake in three hours of football in the morning and then continue with the regular camp programme in the afternoon by joining groups of the same age.
Unlike other football programmes in the region, this programme can take place RAIN or SHINE! With 3 outdoor state-of-the-art football pitches and two indoor gymnasiums available, the football programme will not be affected by poor weather. Another advantage to this programme is that it allows for football enthusiasts to get their full dose of intensive football in the morning and subsequently allowing them to explore other activities, meet other campers, and develop new passions in the afternoon.
All football instructors will be UEFA/FA certified and must have experience in the coaching field.
