P.A.S.S. soccer

P.A.S.S. is a soccer school founded in 2002 by ex professional players. We run development programmes to pro academy football and Futsal training centres for 3-14 year old boys and girls.

In the last 17 years many P.A.S.S. players have gone onto sign professional contracts, scholarships and are playing at pro academies. Over 119 P.A.S.S. players have played for professional clubs, these include one full and six youth internationals. Our vision is for all children to enjoy football and progress to the best of their ability in a fun, friendly and safe environment.

“PASS gave me a great insight on what it would take to become a professional footballer. Now my younger brother is with PASS and I’m sure he will emulate what I have so far achieved.’’

“I had the privilege of spending several summers in England with PASS, taking part in many of their holiday courses, that were fantastically run. Lee Honeywood arranged trials for me at Chelsea FC and other pro clubs. I certainly see PASS as a pathway to a pro club, as I regard them as a very professional outfit.”
