WHAT PLAYERS WILL BE SELECTED AT OUR ACADEMIES ?

Each academy requires different levels of ability to be selected. We believe our Academy will attract mainly the following type of player:
 

  • Academy players who want extra training.
  • Players that are just short of academy standard and are maybe involved in development squads would like to make the next step.
  • Players who want to remain at their junior football clubs but would like more advanced training.
  • Players that have the ability to play at a higher level but would benefit and improve faster with extra coaching.
  •  Players that love football and want the opportunity to take part in a planned and structured technical programme.
  • Players who want to experience working with highly qualified, enthusiastic, positive and forward thinking coaches.

HOW DO OUR ACADEMIES OPERATE ? 

At all our academies we have a maximum coach to player ratio of 1 to 14 and for goalkeepers 1 to 10 .This is the best ratio you will find at any Academy. This means the coach can put in some real quality time with a small group of players which is ultimately what players need to maximize their potential. Players will receive 3 written assessments over the course of a season.
