Located in beautiful Perugia, Italy!

Perugia, Italy Soccer Academy
EduKick Italy located in beautiful Perugia, Italy.

Perugia is a modern and cosmopolitan city known all over the world because of its cultural events and the University for Foreigners. Perugia, in fact, hosts: two main universities, the ancient UniversitĂ  degli Studi and the Foreigners University (UniversitĂ  per Stranieri) that serves as an Italian language and culture school for students from all over the world. Edukick participants will attend the UniversitĂ  per Stranieri for daily Italina language classes. The UniversitĂ  per Stranieri hosts approximately 7,500 studetns while the UniversitĂ  degli Studi hosts 34,000 students so with Perugia having a population of approximately 170,000 it can truly be classed as a University city!

Perugia is the capital city of the region of Umbria in central Italy, near the Tiber river that arrive and finish in the city of Rome. The city symbol is the griffin which can be seen in the form of plaques and statues on buildings around the city. Perugia is a notable artistic and cultural center of Italy. The famous painter Pietro Vannucci, nicknamed Perugino, was a native of Perugia. He decorated the local Sala del Cambio (Room of the Exchange) with a beautiful series of frescoes; eight of his pictures can also be admired in the National Gallery of Umbria. Perugino was the teacher of Raphael, the great Renaissance artist who produced five paintings in Perugia (today no longer in the city) and one fresco. Another famous painter, Pinturicchio, lived in Perugia.

Perugia hosts a number of famous festivals throughout the year that attract many visitors. The Eurochocolate Festival (October), the Umbria Jazz Festival, and the International Journalism Festival (in April) are just three of the many events that participants will have the opportunity to attend.

A.S.D.Pontevalleceppi is a local club located Perugia and is the home training facility of EduKick Italy. The club was formed in 1965 and the site of the facilities has been developed over a number of years and can now boast a full size floodlight 4th generation turf field, grass training fields, goalkeeper training area, change rooms and club house. The club accommodates a full pyramid of play containing a senior team and youth academy with age groups U6 – U18.

Università per Stranieri (University for Foreigners) is committed to fostering international understanding and openness in order to prepare students to become citizens of the world. The University for Foreigners Perugia is the oldest and most prestigious Italian institution involved in teaching and research activities as well as in the diffusion of the Italian language and civilization in all expressions. Its story began in 1921 when a lawyer by the name of Astorre Lupattelli, who had dedicated much of his life to the project, set up the first courses in high culture in his home town. His eventual aim was to heighten people’s awareness of the central Italian region of Umbria - whose chief town is Perugia - both throughout Italy and abroad, to describe its history, its institutions and its natural and artistic history. Until 1926 the courses were held in the University of Perugia itself, one of Italy’s oldest and most celebrated universities, and in the Sala dei Notari inside the historic Palazzo dei Priori. In 1927 the University for Foreigners moved to its own premises, the Palazzo Gallenga, another ancient building, situated in the center of the city. Today, along with the Palazzo Gallenga*, the University also occupies four smaller buildings, the Prosciutti, Lupattelli, Orvieto and Valitutti buildings which, although they are set in the marvelous surrounding country side, are within walking distance of the main site. They form the center of a complex of buildings which enhances the teaching and research facilities available to the Institution. There is a further site, Villa La Colombella, an antique stately residence, which lies hidden in the green hills around the city. It has, however, recently been nominated a University in its own right, consisting of a Faculty of Italian Language and Culture and Departments of Science of Language and Comparative Cultures.

Every Year approximately 2,500 Italian students and 5,000 foreign students of more 100 different nationalities meet up, get to know each other and study together at the University in a unique environment.

EduKick Italy offers young players a programme designed to develop and improve their soccer skills and abilities through new methodology. Emphasis is placed on the development of technical skills through the proposal of various specialized exercises that allow the knowledge and understanding of the tactical tasks (both individually and collectively) of the soccer player within the various modern systems of play. However we do not forget what the game of soccer is, its nature, its development, especially now that the modern game requires great technical ability, quick mental processes, speed of execution and personality.

The game of football as we all know is an unpredictable sport constantly evolving. A wrong passage of the ball, a deviation of the ball, a movement, a contrast with the opponent can change at any moment the development of the game. For this reason most of our program through specific exercises is designed to improve player in the formation of a mentality flexible, elastic and ready, which facilitates and incentives to comply with the reality that surrounds him, both with eyes that mind, in order to develop a rapid and effective response, which is a summary of the reasoning and of a movement. A mentally intense training ensures a preparation and a perfect approach to the game, from all points of view, so that, changes of the play, marking changes, combined and mutual movements and the reading of game situations will develop with ease and speed.

Find the possession of the ball constantly and have teammates always available by moving to receive a pass and create opening, to have always possession and find solutions that will allow fast conclusion in the goal!

Te rule is: constant contact with the ball, “the one who is in control of the ball is in control of the game”.

But to respect this important rule, our players will work hard improving their technical skills and on movements without ball. Through these movements, if made good, a team will retain possession of the ball and then have more opportunity to conclude in the goal.

During a game, a player is in possession of the ball from 40’’ to 3’30’’ major part of his game is without the ball and when in possession, the plays are constituted mainly from opening movements


High technique for quick and effective passing

Continues movement without the ball to receive
