We may be in the midst of rainy January, but Arsenal Soccer Schools are already putting plans together for their residential programme for summer 2014.

The five-day long courses will cater for football mad youngsters who want to eat, sleep and breathe football.

Participants will get to spend five nights at a state of the art sports complex learning all about the beautiful game.

They will receive expert coaching and nutritional advice to learn how to eat like the pros. There will be evening activities and a behind-the-scenes tour of Emirates Stadium too.

The residential courses will be held at Sparsholt College from 3-8 August, and Ardingly College from 17-22 August. 

Boys and girls aged 9 to 15 of all ability levels are welcome
