Our main aim here at Premier UK is to pass on our knowledge and expertise to coaches and players alike, enabling an innovative style of developing the foundations of ‘the beautiful game’ here in the United States.
Soccer is the fastest growing sport in the USA. Unfortunately, due to the fact that this is a relatively recent development, most soccer coaches in the US are still more familiar with American sports such as baseball, American football and basketball. The second problem being the lack of exposure to soccer played in countries such as England, Spain, Italy and South America. Kids in these countries are brought up watching their idols either on television or indeed in the famous stadiums of Old Trafford, San Siro, Nou Camp and the Maracana themselves. We at Premier UK aim to rectify these problems by providing coaching clinics organised educational tours throughout the leading soccer nations, international tournaments in Europe to test our students against the worlds best and last but not least; our academies which will provide the basis of everything we hope to achieve.
Our coaching ethos incorporates many different aspects of life, for example; the use of music during our skills sessions, which we believe is vital in the development of rhythm, coordination and tempo (Just watch the Brazilians play!). This aspect of training is always accompanied by speed, agility and quickness training to teach our students the importance of quick feet, flexibility and agility.
We also use many training techniques from the world of boxing, martial arts, rugby and basketball in order to provide a different perspective on the game of soccer.
Finally, we at Premier UK recognise that the most important aspect of any form of training is FUN! Untold research has shown that students are far more receptive when enjoying themselves; therefore it is central to the Premier UK ethos.
