Elite Football Academy Football training centres include: **
Matches will usually be played on grass pitches, but the use of artificial surfaces also means we can train and play when the weather is not so good, meaning come rain or shine we can always get to work and enjoy our football. Whilst every attempt is made to ensure matches and training go ahead each day, due to the unpredictable nature of the British weather, certain contingencies are in place. Sadly from time to time matches do get postponed and rearranged, but normally come rain or shine there will be a facility available for us to use. Depending on the time of year, we might use one facility or another, and whilst we try hard to ensure that players benefit from all of the training facilities available, it is not always possible to train at a certain venue, and the academy reserves the right to alter the training venues as it sees fit. In the past the academy has trained in stadiums, indoors, used local parks and shared pitches to ensure training always goes ahead.
Staying in top shape is a very important part of the life of a professional footballer, as it is with all athletes. Therefore our physcial conditioning and strengthening programme is designed around football oriented tasks and is carried out at the academy house which boasts a small but comprehensive multiuse gym. All players will benefit from access to the Gym as it is there in the house whenever they want to use it. There will be sessions done in the gym to help everyone build up their upper bodies, which is a key component for young footballers in the English game.
The Gym Programme is designed by football fitness experts and is aimed at getting each individual match fit as quickly as possible. It is also perfect to get injured players back fit. Players however will arrive at the football academy with differing levels of fitness and physical capability, meaning the gym programmes will always be individually tailored to suit your needs. Many players have come to the academy and left looking great, feeling fitter and stronger. Whats more its all included in the price and can be used as often as required.
The academy provide courtesy transport for each player. This includes airport collection and drop off where possible, as well as taking players from the house to training every day.
The vehicles will also be used take players to matches and friendlies as well as the several arranged excursions planned throughout the year for the enjoyment of the players.
The academy now has 2 x 17 seat minibuses ensuring maximum convenience.
