"Going into the camp, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was soon to realize how amazing this camp really was. You gain more than just knowledge and development in your football abilities, but on top of that, you gain amazing friendships with coaches and people you look forward to seeing everyday at the camp and crying from having to leave them at the end. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for anybody considering to go!"

Miami Football Camp 2022

Get to know Train Effective

Train Effective was founded to help players from all around the world

to become the best footballers they can be.

We started as a Training App ...

Train Effective started as a football training app which now has more than 500.000 players using it to become better.

... started the In-Residence program ...

4 years ago we then started the In-Residence program where we gave some of the players who used the app the opportunity to come to London and to live and train with us.

... and this turned it into camps all around the world!

And this In-Residence program now has turned into numerous football camps per year all around the world.


What is included in the price?

The price covers everything by the time you arrive at the hotel. This includes the hotel for the entire camp time, meals & dinks 3 times a day, all the training sessions on the pitch and in the gym, the masterclasses, the showcase matches, the stadium tour and activity days, transportation, 1-1 Feedback Sessions, the assessment report, the training kits (one red kit & one black kit), a Train Effective hoody, the welcome bag and a free lifetime membership to the Train Effective App.

Is the flight and visa included in the price?

The flight & the visa are not covered by the price since we have players coming to the camp from all around the world which results in high price differences for flights & visa application costs. But as soon as you arrive at the hotel, everything is taken care of and included in the price!

How are players grouped during training?

Players will first be grouped according to age, then ability (if enough participants in the age group create multiple group levels). When players arrive at the camp they will be grouped within similar age brackets then, throughout the camp, any potential adjustments to specific groups will be dictated by the coaches evaluations of each player.

How are participants supervised outside of training?

All staff members stay on campus throughout the duration of in session programmes. If a problem arises, a staff member will always be easily accessible to assist.

I'm worried about Covid-19 - is it safe to attend the camp?

Fortunately the pandemic appears to be nearing its end and there are currently no imposed COVID-19 restrictions within the UK, nor are there required isolation periods for those travelling to the country. Should this situation change in the future, Train Effective will act in accordance with the guidelines set out by the UK government and we will execute all necessary precautions to ensure the smooth operation of camp whilst prioritising the safety of all attendees and staff during this time.
