Star names set to appear at Villa soccer schools during half-term

There will be plenty of football fun in store at Villa's half-term football development sessions this month - with a number of first team stars making appearances.

Nathan Baker, Chris Herd, Brad Guzan and Enda Stevens are appearing at soccer schools during the October half-term holidays.

The popular soccer schools are taking place at a number of venues across the West Midlands between October 22 and 26.

Locations include Sutton Coldfield, Aston and Edgbaston.

There is also a soccer school taking place in Tamworth the following week [October 29 to November 2].

Please note the Kings Norton Soccer School has unfortunately been cancelled.

The player visits are taking place on Monday October 22, with Baker and Herd appearing at the Villa Park Indoor Academy and Guzan and Stevens at Hallfield School in Edgbaston.

Check out all the soccer school details.

If you fancy coming an ace shot stopper like Guzan or Shay Given there is also now a two-day goalkeeping course available.

The specialist course focuses on all the major facets of becoming a top keeper such as shot stopping, handling techniques, one-v-ones, footwork, crosses, throwing and kicking.

The regular soccer school sessions run between 10am and 3pm for the seven to 14 years age group and 10am to 12noon for the four to six years 'mini kickers' age group.

Not only do you have the chance to learn more about the game and develop your skills, the sessions provide a chance for you to make friends with kids your own age.

Courses are taught by our FA qualified CRB checked coaches, who have Emergency Aid and Safeguarding Children certificates.

Players will require football kit, football boots and trainers, warm, waterproof clothing/jacket, change of clothes, towel, goalkeeper gloves (if applicable), shin pads, sun hat/sun block and any relevant medication.

On the GRASS surfaces, you should bring football boots and trainers, while if the course is on ASTRO TURF only trainers are required.

Check out all the soccer school details.
