Culture is what you will see, hear and feel in the academy, creating a good culture will bring about a positive climate on and off the playing field. Our game culture will develop the players to have a social and emotional connection to the game. As we want players to enjoy the game through a process that would involve team playing with rhythm, heart and desire. Teams will be a part of a branding journey that will market players through social media, communities and businesses.
All Players and Coaches will go through a series of developmental stages of learning, they will endure a level of training workshops that would increase their understanding and knowledge of the game. The Academy curriculum has been created around players and coaches 21st Century needs. The curriculum was developed under the guidance of UEFA A licensed coach and Director of ABC Football Matters (Bermuda), this support has allowed us to have a full coaching education tools (booklets) for all levels. A part of having a strong curriculum we have developed a coaching certificate for the Academy which covers the areas of leadership, engagement, Nutrition and Social development. Each coach will have to pass these workshops before coaching at the Academy.
Leadership is an important Pillar of the Academy, this pillar will be lead by the principles of Power of One. The Power of One is a leadership empowerment process that was created to empower young players, students and parents to build confidence, lead and create goals that will help them in their career, game and social environment. The players, parents and coaches will go through a number of empowering workshops throughout the season.
Academic should be one of the biggest needs in 21st century development when it comes sports. When we look at academics and sports in youth club development, we must show the relationship between both of their importance, if not we will have a lot of talented players that will struggle with complex situations in the game and training. As we further coaching education 21st Century it is important that player and coaches have a growth mindset. The academy will deliver workshops that will help students transition from grade levels.
