Coach Recruitment & Training
Just as we believe in player development we also believe in developing our own coaches, this helps our Academies keep costs down as we do not need to hire expensive licensed coaches we create our own coaches who follow our coaching philosophy and curriculum with the players.
We offer ongoing Academy coach training sessions, all sessions are listed on the central training calendar and coaches from any academy location can attend any sessions until they get certified.
Part 1 of our Academy Coach license is approx. 10-15 hours of online theory and application sessions. All sessions are delivered LIVE with one of our Academy instructors, the sessions are interactive and are designed to enable coaches to understand what we want to teach our Junior players and the challenges they will encounter in delivering our sessions.
Academy Development Model
Our Academy Development model has been created and updated over the past 9 years. The model incorporates many factors and elements which affect junior players development outside of the coaching and curriculum that is employed.
Our goal is to create a fluid and optimum environment that meets the needs of each players as they progress through the stages at our Academies, we all know that learning is not linear and therefore nor should our groups and environments be.
Our Development Model details all of the elements that we feel are necessary to help develop young players into competent intelligent players. These elements can be dialled up or dialled down depending on what stage of development the player is at. The elements are all vital and need to be combined in order to maximize the development of all players at your Junior Development Academy. This is what sets you apart from clubs and community programs in your area.
Our curriculum that we provide covers the 3 stages of development that we have at our academies. The curriculum for each stage relates back to what we teach our Academy coaches in our courses.
Our goal is to equip players with the basic technical skills in stage 1 and get them into stage 2 as quickly as we can where they start learning the principles of HOW to play soccer.
The curriculum contains a core set of activities that help achieve the soccer learning objectives at each stage and these activities can be used to create session plans based on the principles that your coaches are working on with the players.
The most important thing is the curriculum enables the Academy and coaches to provide a standardized high quality experience for all players where all coaches are focused on teaching the same principles of how to play.
Lead Generation & Sales
One of the aspects of building a successful academy is generating inquiries and then managing those inquires through the sales process until the player registers with your academy.
We help you with initial marketing campaigns designed to generate inquiries and then we will show you how to implement our simple 5 step inquiry to sales process.
We work with our academies to set the pricing that is applicable for your academies market and your financial goals and you will get access to our unique registration and billing program.
Save yourself a lot of time effort and money by using our central ordering system for all of your academy training merchandise, uniforms and additional soccer gear for your academy.
We keep Academy training shirts in stock centrally so you can get the same low price whenever you need extra shirts rather than having to place a large order to get lower pricing.
We also place orders for additional Academy gear and uniforms throughout the year the cost savings we get by bulk ordering is passed on to you as an Academy owner.
