WELCOME TO MICA’S ELITE ACADEMY SESSIONS
FOR BOYS AGED 11 – 16 YEARS OLD
(SCHOOL YEAR 7 – 11)
The advanced, professional academy standard coaching sessions are specifically designed for players who:
YOUTH ACADEMY EXPERIENCE

Have/Had trials at a professional youth academy?
SLIPPED THROUGH THE NET

Our Elite Academy sessions will be based around:
Variation of turns, tricks and skill moves to ensure that your child gets lots of touches of the ball to help build confidence and self-esteem whilst developing spatial awareness and decision-making skills.
Passing & Receiving
Variation of passing and receiving techniques to help develop your child’s awareness of their own position on the pitch whilst enhancing their decision making and teamwork skills.
Composure and discipline
With and without the ball.
Understanding of team strategies
Decision making skills
When, where, why, who, how.
Physical condition and well being
Communication and sportsmanship skills.
The elite sessions will include many coaching techniques that are currently used at professional football academies across the UK.
All children that attend these sessions are sure to benefit from our own unique first class professional coaching sessions hosted by UEFA/FA qualified coaches who have experienced coaching in a professional youth academy environment.
The coaching sessions will help to provide your child with all of the necessary attributes required to help them to progress and flourish in the future.
Training sessions will include all aspects of attacking, defending and transitional play within football to help personal development.
Football can be a high pressured game with many highs and lows. The most important thing is to remain level headed, work hard to improve your all round game and just enjoy playing football.
We are here to help your child with all aspects within the game.
MEET NEW FRIENDS
Have fun, work hard and meet great long lasting friends along the way.
All elite players will receive an individual progress report every 10 weeks to monitor development.
