CURRICULUM - We have adopted the  "Complete Coaching Curriculum for children Age 3-18" as a framework for all the Academy programs from "Beginners" age 3-4Y0 up "Skill Building" to 10 years old. 

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PATHWAY - We have designed the PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PATHWAY in order to guide players through a process that starts at the age of 3 with the "Beginners" instructional program and ends with the Futsal program at age of10.   

SKILL DEVELOPMENT CARD   We have created the "Skill Development Card" for each of the Academy programs in order to share with parents and Schools Administrators the work that our coaches do with the children.
