My son has been attending Corinthians Soccer Academy for 6 months now and absolutely loves it. Even over this short time frame I have noticed a huge difference in his ability on the pitch and it has helped his confidence enormously. His ball control, dribbling, decision making and pitch awareness have all improved.


It is very obvious that the coaches put a huge effort in beforehand to plan the sessions, so that on the day, the sessions are fast, efficient and performed at match pace with an emphasis on “reality based” training.


Craig and Joe are naturals with the kids and give each child plenty of encouragement. We genuinely feel very lucky to have footballers of this calibre training our son. Would highly recommend.
