THE Arsenal Soccer School has acquired a permanent office base at the Riviera International Centre in Torquay.
Simon Jolly, general manager of the Riviera International Centre, said: "Fitness and healthy living is at the core of the Riviera International Centre so we are delighted to welcome Arsenal Soccer School which focuses on training, developing and inspiring children through team sports."
The Soccer School works with 75 primary and secondary schools and 22 sports coaches throughout Devon.
It also co-ordinates four Development Centres, which cater for advanced seven to 14-year-olds, and seven Progression Centres for children of all abilities aged between seven and 12.
Mark Titchard, Devon regional manager of Arsenal Soccer School, said: "We take time to develop and nurture our young players to help them reach their full potential.
"By guiding them through our extensive training programmes, we can help build future world-class players."
Arsenal Soccer Schools has been operating since 1985 around the UK and has expanded internationally.
Despite its name, the soccer school also co-ordinates a range of team sports including hockey, football and rugby as part of the National Curriculum.
The soccer school is running a comprehensive programme in Torbay and Teignbridge on selected dates in August.
The five-day courses start at £20. They have been designed to teach new skills and tactics whilst working on developing existing player talent using the established Arsenal Soccer Schools training techniques.
