Lights out
10pm
Location: Your room

We hate that part too, but after all that effort you need the rest. Tomorrow is a new day where we will see and do many more new things. Showcase matches, 1-on-1 feedback talks with the coaches, stretching sessions, ... just to name a few.

After dinner, it's time for games, challenges and laughter. Get to know your peers and have fun!

Gym session   
4pm
Location: Gym nearby

Mental resilience - check. But what about your physical resilience? A good sense of balance and a trained core can make the difference in 1v1s. Even if you will see it differently during the exercises: It's a cause worth sweating for.

Masterclass

Mentality is everything. Here you will learn how to prepare for a game in your head, have an advantage over your competition and stay cool even in the most heated moments.

Lunch

A well-deserved break. Athletes like you also pay attention to their habits off the court. Our balanced menus will come in handy.

We all don't like to get up early, but at the latest when you have the ball at your feet  two hours later, you will realise that it was the right decision to get up early.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

How to participate in a camp

01
Application

Due to the high volume of interested people, we've decided to introduce an application process to ensure that the Train Effective Football Camp is an enjoyable experience for both you and your potential teammates. Click the button and fill out the form to apply for the camp(s) of your choice.

Apply now
I'm ready to book
02
Review

After we receive your application, we'll check availability and whether you're a good fit in terms of playing level and attitude. In case it doesn't work out just now - e.g. because it's too demanding or expensive - we'll refer you to another product such as the Virtual Academy or the Train Effective App for the time being and work out a plan with you to make your camp participation happen in the near future (we really want you to experience what it feels like!).

03
Booking

After a positive response you'll receive a booking link and the opportunity to ask specific questions about the desired camp before making the final decision to secure your spot by paying the first deposit.

If you're under 18, it's important to involve your parent or guardian at this point (if not already done).

04
Onboarding

Once you've secured your place, you will receive your camp contract, all additional materials & guides, as well as invitations to the camp-specific WhatsApp group, your lifetime pro-membership in the Train Effective App and - if required - an official invitation letter for your entry into the respective country.

You've got a question?

How are the player groups divided during training?

Players will be grouped by age and ability. If necessary, the coaches will mix up the groups on site so that all players within a group have a similar level.

Is my flight ticket included in the price?

No. Flight tickets aren't included as players join our camps from all over the world, resulting in a variety of prices. Players who live a little closer may not even have to travel by plane. Including a flight package in the price wouldn't take into account the different situations of each individual.

Can I request a roommate?

As is usual in professional football, you will be accommodated in double or triple rooms and therefore have the opportunity to express a room request! To protect you from unwanted situations, all participants must request each other as roommates so that we can grant this request in good conscience.

How are participants supervised outside of training?

There will be staff on campus throughout the stay. Players under 18 are not allowed to leave the camp area unsupervised at any time.

Are there opportunities to be scouted?

Train Effective's network is wide-ranging and connects to different countries in & outside of Europe. If we or our partners deem a player to have the capabilities to play at the highest level, we'll make every effort to recommend the player to other clubs in countries where he is legally allowed to play.

Additionally to individual feedback, you'll also receive a full assessment report which will outline your specific strengths and weaknesses. Combined with the Train Effective app, this will serve you as a blueprint for moving forward in your training after the camp.

Is there an airport transfer?

Airport pick up and drop off is not included in the regular camp package. However, we offer it as an extra service which must be booked at least 6 weeks before the camp starts.

Are allergies taken into account?

Of course! Most of our camps have a buffet selection at meal times, meaning that several options are offered to suit every player. Halal and kosher food is often not offered, however vegetarian options are usually available. Please indicate any food allergies or dietary requirements when registering online so that the kitchen staff can be informed in advance.

How do I know if I need a travel visa?

Depending on your passport, it may be a necessary prerequisite for to attain a visa prior to your arrival. If you are unsure, please use the following resources to check if you require a visa:

For a camp in the United Kingdom click here.
For a camp in the United States click here.

What outfits do you provide?

At the start of the camp, you will receive two Adidas training kits - one in red and one in black. These will be worn alternately and collected in the evening, washed and replaced in the evening of the next day (told you, that you'll live like a pro!). After the camp is over, you can of course keep your outfits.

What about COVID-19 restrictions?

Fortunately, the pandemic appears to be nearing its end and there are currently no restrictions or prescribed isolation times on entry within our host countries.

Should this situation change in the future, Train Effective will act in accordance with UK and US government guidelines and take all necessary precautions to ensure the smooth running of the camp, prioritising the safety of all participants and staff at all times.
