Learn to play football the Arsenal way - and win a trip to the Emirates

An Arsenal soccer school is being held in Bognor in the February half-term.

An Arsenal soccer school is being held in Bognor in the February half-term.

The course has been developed based on the techniques used by Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger to develop young talent.

Children attending the programmes don’t have to be budding professionals who will one day run out on to the pitch at Emirates Stadium in an Arsenal shirt, but they could have the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes matchday experience at the Emirates Stadium.

Every child attending an Arsenal Soccer School this half-term will be entered into an exclusive competition to win a matchday tour of the Emirates.

The prize includes a pre-match tour of the stadium, a chance to accompany the kitman preparing the shirts in the home dressing room, seeing the team arrive, lunch for two in Arsenal’s exclusive Club Level, a visit to the stadium announcer’s suite pre-match to meet the man behind the microphone, two match tickets.

The prizewinner can also watch the post-match press conference with Wenger.

Players enrolled this half-term could be selected to attend an advanced trial centre in 2011.

The trial is free of charge and offers potential progression to an advanced centre and the South London Centre of Excellence.

In previous years soccer school attendees have progressed through our development programme and signed for the Arsenal academy.

Arsenal Soccer Schools have been running courses for over thirteen years throughout half-term and summer holidays.

The Bognor course is at Arun Leisure Centre, Felpham Way, on February 24 and 25.

Children participating will receive a gift, certificate and Arsenal Soccer School football at the end of each course.
