Our Principles

PFA believe in producing players with outstanding character and intelligent game management skills. This will give them every opportunity to play at their very best. 

To achieve this we operate a child centric approach that delivers expert coaching and guidance on an individual basis. This enables every player to learn and develop at their own pace over the long term.

Our Pre Academy and Foundation phase players (age 4-10) have the freedom to be creative, make their own decisions and solve problems in exciting game based sessions. We take a more balanced approach to our Youth Development phase players (age 11-16). Principles of play are taught, but still alongside a healthy degree of freedom to play creatively, so we develop players who are effective decision makers. 

EVERY player receives:

  • PFA specific assessment
  • Individual player learning plan
  • 12 week review with Academy Director
  • Individual learning goals
  • UEFA/FA qualified coaching
  • Opportunity to join PFA Allstars team
  • Chance to partake in Masterclass coaching sessions with the very best coaches and players
