Soccer schools - Albion in the Community

Soccer schools

Our hugely popular soccer schools have been running since 1990 and take place in venues across Sussex.

Brighton & Hove Albion Soccer Schools

Aimed at girls, boys and anyone aged between five and 12-years-old, our Brighton & Hove Albion Soccer Schools are a great place for young people to learn new skills and make new friends in a safe, fun and structured environment.

We currently have soccer schools taking place in Brighton and Hove, Worthing, Horsham, and Eastbourne.

As part of our response to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all our soccer schools will follow FA guidelines on grassroots football and will have a high coach-to-player ratio and extra protocols in place.

Youngsters taking part will also be given fun, football-themed activities to do during their lunch breaks, focusing on areas like numeracy and literacy, while our nutritionist will be visiting some of our sessions to talk about the importance of healthy eating and being active.

We take the safety of our players and coaches very seriously, that’s why we’ll be:

  • Carrying out a full Covid-19 risk assessment before each session.
  • Asking parents to complete self-declaration forms before their child attends.
  • Following current FA guidelines on grassroots football at all times.
  • Fully adhering to government guidance on preventing the spread of Covid-19.
  • Increasing our coach-to-player ratio.

We are currently taking bookings for the following courses. Simply click on the venue to be taken through to our booking page:





Safeguarding: virtual drop-in sessions

To ensure we continue to give everyone the opportunity to discuss any safeguarding issues with us, we are introducing a regular virtual drop-in: a safe online space for young people or parents/carers to raise any concerns they may have relating to the welfare of any children or adults connected with the club or charity.

Members of the safeguarding team will be available to speak to you privately about anything safeguarding or welfare related. Only one person (or family members joining together) will be permitted into the meeting at a time. Two members of staff from the safeguarding team will be in the call to listen and provide advice.

How to join the session: you don’t need to book a slot, just wait a few minutes for a slot to become available and you’ll be let into the meeting. If you can’t make the drop in time you can still just email at any time to raise any issues.

This month’s safeguarding drop-in dates and times are below.

  • Thursday 10th September – 6-7pm – Zoom ID 363 156 0078
