Producing talented academy footballers in professional clubs


Box Soccer run their unique and progressive sessions in a number of football academies across the country. Heart of Midlothian were the first club to officially partner and ask Box Soccer to run weekly sessions for their talented academy players. Since then a number of other clubs have request similar agreements.

Where and Why?

Academy Services

Heart of Midlothian FC officially partnered with Box Soccer in August 2015. The partnership has grown and in January 2018, Hearts asked if Box Soccer could run a Half Term camp. Such was the positive feedback, Hearts requested more sessions and so weekly Academy sessions were put on for Boys, Girls and Little Hearts Stars (2-5 year olds).

The Box Soccer sessions are delivered by Hearts Academy coaches and overseen by Darren Murray, Head of Coach Education at the Academy. Each session is based entirely on the Box Soccer Training model.

In recent years, Box Soccer Training has played a key part in developing Hearts star John Souttar’s abilities, who has recently been called up to the full Scottish International team.

The Hearts Soccer academy with Box Soccer Training represents an unique opportunity to step inside the Hearts Academy and step up to the next level using the same practises and principles that have developed a host of Hearts first team players.

The success with Hearts has led to Arbroath, Airdrie and Stenhousemuir Football Clubs requesting Box Soccer to run Academy sessions for them.

Box Soccer currently run Academy sessions for the following clubs:

  • Heart of Midlothian FC
  • Forfar FC
  • Arbroath FC
  • Stenhousemuir FC
