When Sav employs and trains his coaching staff, he ensures they are of the best quality. Not only FA or Nationally qualified but they must meet the rigorous standards Academy Soccer Camps has specified over the last 21 years.

Sav has been flying back and forth from the USA, where he has directed soccer camps for some of the largest summer soccer companies in the US and has been a pro coach in Des Moines, Iowa for 5 years. This was a very competitive and enthusiatic travelling youth team. The team has won many tournaments locally and in interstate competitions.

He has more recently has linked up with US based Eurotech International where he coaches and directs the under 18’s program. Never one to take things easy and always looking to improve his skills, Sav has taken an FA tutors course which enables him to work on the new Level 1 coaching courses, for start up coaches. He also undertaken clinics in which coaches come and observe drills and techniques for various levels and topics.

Sav has a wealth of experience, which is why the best players seek to attend Academy Soccer Camps.

The way the courses are structured to develop players to a higher level and Sav’s attention to detail, professional approach and approachable nature is what makes these courses so popular.

He has links to Plymouth Argyles youth development program and as one of their youth team scouts will be influential in recommending high quality players to the Championship League Club.

He has worked with many of the senior soccer clubs in South Devon, Western League and Devon League and has worked for Plymouth Argyle, its Youth professionals and senior team players during his 5 years at the club.
