Southend United Courses

We use football as a vehicle to help address social issues and do this through our four departments; Sports Participation, Health, Education and Community Cohesion.

We deliver engagement programmes to the people of South Essex with two main objectives; grow the fan base of Southend United and contribute to a ‘Better Southend’.

Our Mission

Is to have engaged with one million people through the brand of Southend United by 2026 and have a positive influence on peoples life.

Southend United always look forward to welcoming new & existing footballers onto our soccer schools. Our DBS checked FA licensed coaches are always on hand to inspire, encourage and share their passion for the beautiful game.

“It’s great to be able to support the Southend United Soccer Schools. There is always a great atmosphere and it’s great to see such a buzz amongst the children. It really reminds me of how I used to be at a young age, full of energy, excited and with a passion to achieve my dream”

Will Atkinson (Midfielder)
