Coach Education Day at Aston Villa

YESsoccer and its Chicago Fire Camps & Training affiliate are proud to announce a coach education event in partnership with English Premier League Club Aston Villa.

Our exciting new partnership with Aston Villa will kick off on February 24th, as Aston Villa Football Development Department hosts a YESsoccer and CFC&T Coach Education Day.  

This invitation-only event will be held at Aston Villa's Academy building, and will be lead by Chicago Fire Player Development Manager Brian Roberts and senior YESsoccer instructors. 

Aston Villa have an extensive background in youth development. The Villa Football Department deliver programming to over 400,000 young players each year in the midlands. The club recently secured Category One status for their Academy following an independent audit of the Club's youth development programmes, which forms part of the Barclays Premier League Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP). 

In addition to achieving the highest status of the EPPP, the Aston Villa Academy has also emerged as the No.1 ranked Academy in the U.K.

Coaches interested in attending the education day should contact to schedule a personal interview.

Coaches who have been invited to the education day should confirm their place at the event by contacting
