CREATING PLAYERS OF THE FUTURE

get started

The Leading football academy in the UK for players aged 4-16yrs

join the PFA family and start experiencing academy life. At Pro Football Academy you don’t just play you learn.

Pre Academy / Foundation Phase

ages 5 - 11

Have the freedom to be creative, make their own decisions and solve problems in an array of challenging technical and game-based sessions.

Philosophy

Our philosophy is to play possession based attacking football.

To achieve this, we operate a ‘player-centred’ approach that delivers expert coaching and guidance on a more individual basis, so that every player can learn and develop at their own pace over the long term.

Overall we will create a professional environment where our players are encouraged to experiment and be creative and have no fear of failure in order to develop their technique and decision making.

youth development phase

ages 12 - 16

As players progress to the Youth Development Phase, a more balanced approach is adopted where the players game understanding is developed, whilst still maintaining a degree of freedom and creativity. We also want to ensure we develop players who are effective decision makers.

Mission statement

It is our vision at Pro Football Academy to develop each and every player to reach their maximum potential as a player and as a person.

This is why we have long term player development at the forefront of everything we do.
