Best Family Holidays with Football Classes

In our footie-mad world, holidays that include football training are ever-more popular, catering to girls and boys who'd like to improve their skills while away or those who simply can’t bear to miss out on their football fix while they’re away from home.

The standard of children's football clubs in holiday resorts varies wildly. Some are run by prestigious football teams and might even feature visits by famous players or coaches, others are run by the hotels or tour operators themselves – sometimes by qualified trainers. The majority are run in English or in more than one language at a time – the benefit of the latter being that your kids will get to absorb another language and get the chance to make friends with children from other countries.

In upmarket resorts, football clubs tend to be paid activities and also ones that book up well in advance due to their popularity. In budget-friendly holiday villages, they are often run on a complimentary basis as part of your all-inclusive package, but they might still need booking well in advance (ideally when you book your holiday). We can advise you on all of these: we can give you insider details on football clubs within specific resorts that you're interested in, including age ranges, or we can start from scratch and source you the right resort with kids' football training for your child's particular needs.
