Core offerings are junior coaching programmes and coach education courses. Both are delivered by a 16-strong team of full-time FA/UEFA qualified coaches from the UK. Coaches are recruited from professional clubs and academies and are passionate about sharing their expertise and developing a passion for football in youngsters.
The club’s Junior Coaching Programme runs at 30+ venues across Beijing and Tianjin for boys and girls aged 3 to 18. The programme is taught in English and Chinese, technical in focus, and dedicated to the long-term development of youngsters of all playing levels, both on and off the pitch.
