Will Partington – Head Coach, Brazilian Soccer Schools
Will Partington is currently the Director of Socatots & Brazilian Soccer Schools Jersey as well as the Global Head Coach of Brazilian Soccer Schools worldwide.
Having been a long time admirer of founder Simon Clifford’s work Will spent a lot of time and effort tracking Simon down over 10 years ago to find out more about the now proven and highly regarded Brazilian Soccer Schools coaching programme. In the subsequent years Will made full use of his access to both the coaching syllabus and Simon’s yearly ICFDS coaching courses to ensure that he delivered the coaching syllabus to the best ability he could in his allotted franchise area of Jersey.
Will’s inaugural trip to Brazil was back in the days when he was a full English beach soccer international and spent time playing for the beach soccer teams of Vasco de Gama and Flamengo.
This was the first of what have now become annual research trips to Brazil, with Will now owning his own property in Rio de Janeiro. Over many years Will has immersed himself in the Brazilian culture and developed many friends within the Soccer industry and beyond out in Brazil. He has had trips to meet Jairzinho as well as visit Careca’s soccer school in Sao Paolo. This unrestricted access has continued to the present day where on his last visit he was given a free rein to observe the set up and coaching infrastructure within the Professional clubs Fluminense and Flamengo. Will even delivered his own even sessions within their youth academies.
This has seen Will continue to build his coaching education and further explore the physical side of the game, combining this with the technique and flexibility displayed by players introduced to specific body and ball movements from a young age. In the midst of this journey, Will has had so far had with Brazilian Soccer Schools he crossed paths with current owner Rupert Lowe when Simon Clifford accepted a job at Southampton FC with Sir Clive Woodward.
