FRANCE OVERVIEW


EduKick France Soccer Academy!


France Soccer Academies Overview
EduKick France programs are a complete package of international travel, French cultural exposure, French language study & immersion, academic study and professional football training.

EduKick is proud to partner with Hidalgo International Football Academy (HIFA) to ensure that participating players have "the French language & culture football experience of a lifetime!" EduKick believe that living, studying and training in a foreign country is an invaluable experience that a player will never forget and the benefits of such an experience will be embedded positively into that individual for the rest of his or her life.

This program is designed for serious footballers aged 16+ who desire to develop their football/soccer abilities over an extended period of time (nine months) under the guidance of our professional technical coaching staff. The program coincides with the regular academic school year, beginning in September and finishing in May of the following year.

All EduKick France - HIFA Football Courses, including this Football Academy, are overseen by the famous and respected former French National Team Coach, Michel Hidalgo!

EduKick HIFA staff are keenly aware of the challenges that our Academy presents to our players so are fully committed to the overall education of each individual through our football development and language immersion program. Living, playing football and studying in France as a teenager or young adult represents an enormous challenge for both the participant and the educators. From the participant's; courage, effort and character is required to succeed. From the EduKick HIFA staff, it demands creativity, professional guidance, supervision, mentorship and expertise in order to provide the required level of service to our young players.

The year long program is a compete "French Language & Culture" immersion course. All school lectures, football coaching sessions, and social activities are conducted in French, though the communicative language may still be both English and French. Students will study French daily and be fully immersed in French language and culture through daily interaction with their teammates, classmates, new French friends and EduKick staff.

EDUCATION - STUDENT LIFE


All EduKick France students are taught at the International College of Cannes.


EduKick France Soccer Academy Education
EduKick France Boarding School French language classes take place at the International College of Cannes.
The International College of Cannes provides a whole range of French language courses from Elementary to Proficiency level. The faculty is made up of 20 professors holding university teaching degrees who are trained in the latest teaching techniques and share many years of experience teaching French as a foreign language. The teachers have a very lively and efficient teaching approach using original methods and documents. The program is thoroughly established to guarantee continuity from one level to the next.

The initial morning of academic study is reserved for a placement test to better evaluate the student's current knowledge of French, choosing a course level that best suits his/her personal needs. There are 15 different levels available and class size is typically between 6 – 14 students maximum.

Students attend 3 classes per day (45 minutes per class) between 9.00am – 12.00pm

It is not necessary to buy any text books. The books used in class according to the language level being studied can be borrowed from the college for a deposit of 20 € which will be reimbursed when the book is handed back. It is recommended students to bring with them a dictionary and a book with the conjugations of the French verbs (a good one is called “Le Bescherelle”).

The aim of the course is to acquire abilities of communication in daily social exchanges, according to the language level of each class. It is based on rigorous and solid grammatical progression, systematic activities in concrete contexts and specific work on the control of lexical contents. Emphasis is put on interactive exercises among the students in the class, reflection on the language and acquisition of automatisms. Use of written, recorded and visual documents favouring comprehension and expression. Practice of linguistic capabilities in comprehension and production. According to the language level, work on the know-how regarding French and French-speaking culture.

We encourage you to begin to increase your French language ability as soon as you have registered for this program. Ask your EduKick representative about the different options for improving your French (or on your own).

The academic year football boarding school course has been carefully designed to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from this unique French language immersion football experience. However, please remember that you are going to be living as a guest in another country, with different customs, language and food, so it will be a challenge! You will meet all members of the course (your new teammates) and will be living along side them for the duration of the academic year. The information below is designed to help you integrate as easily and quickly as possible.

Remember players...you and the other students (and staff) will likely form a genuine friendship that can last for the rest of their lives!


  • Take the time to write a personal bio and also a football resume to share with EduKick French staff prior to your arrival.
  • Make an effort to ask about your new teammates, their interests and hobbies.
  • Make sure to follow course rules and regulations at all times.
  • Remember at EduKick France we are a team, be sure to be punctual to all activities and events.
  • Always use a pre-paid international telephone card (available from local shops) to phone home.
  • Always remember to ask EduKick France staff if you ever are confused about anything or have a question of any type.
  • Try and keep your room and bed as tidy as possible to respect your fellow roommates and to follow EduKick course rules.
  • Make sure to eat well at all three daily meals as your body will need to be well nourished and hydrated to handle the daily training sessions.
  • Set a regular schedule for doing your personal and sports laundry.

Remember! You're not living in a hotel and your mom will not be there to help you!

Finally, you must remember that French people may do things differently to what you are accustomed. It's also easier to misunderstand a situation when communicating in a foreign language. If you are unsure about something, ask an EduKick staff member to assist you.

FRANCE SOCCER TRAINING


Edukick France has a strong partnership with the great French Coach Michel Hidalgo.


France Soccer Academies
France sessions from EduKick France Technical Director mentored by the great French Soccer Coach Michel Hidalgo and his technical staff.
Local team placement training sessions - Our main achievement is to manage to have our participants as integrated members of the local community by means of sharing the same sport goals and language. This will facilitate the participant’s socialization process. This is why all our “academicians” are registered in a French club. The U17, U19 and Senior are registered at U.S. Cannes la Bocca Olympique, one of the best clubs in the area. The U20 and over are registered either at US Cannes la Bocca Olympique or Le Cannet depending on the player’s level and the coach decision.

As members of the club, each player trains 3 to 4 times per week, 2 hour-trainings usually between 5pm and 8pm from Mondays to Fridays. There is no special instruction given to our academicians, they are all treated on the same bases and receive the same instructions as all the other players of the club who are also dedicated to become professional players.

Example Itinery:

EDUKICK TRAINING


As members of the academy, all participants receive special treatment, advice and follow-up. Once a week, our EduKick France technical football/soccer coach and trainer organises an additional training including physical exercises, personal and collective techniques, evaluations and tests, and a personal physical and moral follow-up of our academician. Each session is limited to 5 participants at the most.

GYM & FITNESS



The gym is booked for the all duration of stay of the academicians. Being a member of our academy gives free access to the gym and facilities. Our Edukick coach will give each participant a personalized program every week and is entitled to check that the program is followed through. Heavy weight is not advised for any athletes under 17 or 18. And the participants will have to respect that fundamental advice.

OFFICIAL MATCHES


Matches are played on Saturdays for U15 and U17 and on Sundays for U19 and over. This will give the player the opportunity to participate in the French championship (league) at district, regional or national level. It is up to the team coach to decide whether the player is selected to play. For away matches, our players are transported with their team (buses, minibuses, cars…)

NOTE:


Note: For 17 years old and under, with passport outside the European Community, the Article 19 from FIFA reserves the right for the French Football Federation to deliver or not a “Match License”. There is no restriction for players over 18 years of age. For the students who will not obtain a football license, the program will be exactly the same except that official matches will not be part of the program..

FRIENDLY MATCHES & TOURNAMENTS

REGENERATION TIMES & INJURIES


Resting and regeneration time are key to success for our football program. Athletes need to be healthy and rested to perform their best in and outside the pitch. Our staff will promote this type of life style for each of our participants. If a participant feels ill or is overtired, he should report it to our Edukick coach immediately. Do not try to train or play when you are sick or injured. It is much better to rest 1 or 2 days than being out for 2 to 3 weeks because of an unreported injury or sickness.

MEDICAL FOLLOW UP


In case of a serious injury during the year, the player will not be excluded from the program. He will continue on to the end of the year with his school curriculum. Whether for medical reasons or any other type, the participant decision to interrupt the regular program and return to his country of origin will have to be made in writing to us. All fees of residence for the remaining period and for transportation will be covered by the participant himself. In case the participant is under 18 of age, the parents will sign a parental discharge to start any medical treatment or surgery after an accident and in case of surgery emergency. Parents should have current valid passports in case emergencies might occur and they need to travel immediately.

PROFESSIONAL TRIALS


Players are scouted principally on observation during specific oriented course activities: open training sessions, matches or tournaments. For players who have a high ability of play, pre-engagements trials may be set with a professional club. The program, through its partner “Sport International Organisation”, will follow-up and make arrangements on behalf of the player to find the best possible protocol with the club in view of starting a professional career.

"EduKick Inc. & Sport International Organization" have the exclusive rights of image of the players (photos, video, advertising campaign, etc) as long as the player is in France and playing in France.
