At the core of all our programmes is the desire to harness the next generation of semi‐ professional and professional footballers. We strongly believe in motivating you to reach your full potential and preparing you for life as a professional sportsperson.
It is a well‐known cliché that practice makes perfect but every dedicated athlete knows only too well, just how true it is.Our training replicates the environment that you are likely to encounter after leaving the programme. Each week you train with highly qualified professional coaches, under the direction of a head coach from either a semi‐professional or professional club. Training depends on the sport and pathway you have chosen, but typically includes technical development, tactical and competition set up, stretching, proprioception and training games.
