Samba Soccer Schools launching in London

Samba Soccer Schools launching in London

With the dramatic finish to the domestic football season and the prospect of the European Championships, the UK has gone football crazy. To add to the mix, new Brazilian style coaching is being introduced to London. Samba Soccer Schools (SSS) will launch their initiative next month at Goals Soccer Centre in Hayes West London.

Samba Soccer Schools (SSS) teach football the Brazilian way. They provide professional Brazilian football coaching for children and young people aged from 5 to 16.

Nilio Bagga, Founder & Head Coach SSS: “At Samba Soccer Schools, we have a twofold purpose. The first is football; to learn how to play with the flair and freedom that epitomises the Brazilian game. The second is social development. By using Brazilian football as a vehicle, Samba Soccer Schools is able to develop discipline, confidence and knowledge in young people.”

Nilio founded SSS in 2009 in Warwickshire and was recently shortlisted in two categories at the Asian Football Awards held at Wembley Stadium. SSS is established in the midlands and plans to gain a foothold in London working in association with Inventive Sports. The social enterprise initiative has also gained the backing of “Kick Racism Out of Football” and “Goals Soccer Centres”.

“Brazilian football is renowned globally for being creative, exciting and fun. The Brazilian football team has won more World Cups than any other nation and they have achieved this feat by playing entertaining football. The purpose of Samba Soccer Schools is to teach young people the skills and mentality to play attractive, winning football; to play the Brazilian way and inject some creativity into the English game. As anticipation mounts for the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup, there is no better time to translate the excitement into new ideas that empower youth,” Nilio added.

Baljit Rihal, Director Inventive Sports: “SSS offers a unique opportunity to be a part of something special; with us, you learn the stylish skills and techniques displayed by the most successful national team in history. With our unique and professional coaching style, our schools teach young people to play with the flair and freedom that epitomises the Brazilian game. Inventive Sports are proud to be associated with a fantastic brand that we are confident will become a household name in the future.”
