BRAZILIAN SOCCER SCHOOLS
Brazilian Soccer Schools were introduced by Simon Darcy Clifford to address an urgent need to provide all children with a dynamic, globally-proven and cutting edge football (soccer) coaching programme.
Simon felt a glaring gap had emerged and a sustainable, grass-roots development programme was needed to maximise the natural skills of youngsters across the world.
Simon’s initial research began in 1989 following a study into the youth development in Holland, Spain, France, Italy and England. He founded Brazilian Soccer Schools in 1996 after a research trip to South America to study Brazilian football. His intention was not to copy, imitate or replicate; he went to see how the best, as they stood at that moment in time had approached things.
