Why should I teach football at camp?

Football coaching jobs abroad at camp are an epic way to spend a summer. If you're in love with the game, you can spend every day outside, working on your skills. That's just the life of a football coach abroad - and why it's one of the best jobs at camp. You'll work with kids on the pitch, showing them how to dribble, pass and score. You'll be in charge of running drills, organizing scrimmages, and making sure your campers stay hydrated.

Soccer coaching jobs at camp are a great alternative to football coaching apprenticeships. It's almost like working a football academy job - except it's your academy. If you're serious about a future career in football coaching, then getting some football coaching work experience at camp might be the perfect place to start.

What does a football coach do?

Football jobs abroad are all about fun. Whatever camp you're at, you'll be playing and coaching kids who want to have fun and improve their skills.

It's your football academy - so in your coaching job, it's up to you to read the group and design the session around their skills. You'll likely work with a variety of kids in different groups, 5-6 times a day. Soccer coaching jobs may vary from camp to camp. Specialist sports camp jobs will see you working with kids who are more advanced, and probably play on a team outside of camp. At other camps, you'll have campers who are typically less advanced. To nail down one of these roles, make sure to add your preferences and skills to your profile.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I apply for football jobs at summer camp?

When starting your application you’ll be asked to select your top skills. Choose football. Go into detail about what you’re going to bring to the role, your skill level and if you’re already qualified. A camp director will then be able to assess if you’re a good fit and invite you to their camp.

How can I make my application stronger without any qualifications?

The best way to make your application stronger is to have the qualifications to back it up. Soccer jobs in America are a fantastic way to spend the summer but also very competitive. If you are serious about coaching football in the USA then take a look at courses which may give you confidence and show your skill level.

How many children will I be coaching in one session?

Your football education job will see you teaching various campers divided by age group. These divisions can vary in skill level, but are usually made up of 10-13 campers. You’ll then be paired with an individual camper or a group, and don’t worry - you’ll be supported by your fellow counselors, who will act as volunteer football coaches.

Should I pack any football equipment?

Bring your kit! If you've got a favourite jersey from home, bring it - but mostly, you'll want your shorts and footy boots. (In America, footy boots are called ‘cleats’ - and you’ll be living in them.) You’ll be working outside, so make sure you have a hat and sunglasses. Joggers are also a good shout for those cold mornings.
