residential - £589.00 | Day - £349.00

Jamie Williams of Newcastle United and GT7 Football Academy are joining forces to create the best football experience ever.

We are on a mission to “power up” the skill levels of children and young people, imagining a future game where young footballers are creative and fearless in their decision making and problem solving. 

We aim to create an environment where everyone feels a strong sense of belonging; feels highly motivated; and where having fun is key to success. A key part of our camp is to help every young person discover and develop their on-field and off-field “super powers”. Recognising and celebrating the skills and qualities held by others is at the core of effective team work and collaboration, and indeed the concept of lifting others will be a consistent theme during our time together.
