Little Foot Academica
Football the Little Foot Way
The vision of the Little Foot academy is to develop each and every player’s skills technically and tactically. This will greatly increase the understanding of each player’s role on the soccer field. The Academy also specifically aims to equip our players with vital life skills such as focus, stamina and discipline that will stand them in good stead in all other aspects of their lives.
The academy philosophy is founded on the “whole person” approach, recognizing that improving a player’s physical and technical development must go hand in hand with the advancement of each player’s maturity as well as their emotional and psychological well-being.
The academy will therefore encourage all children to aim high, in terms of their soccer ambitions, and will promote the practice of sport as a means of improving each player’s mental and physical health.
The club’s own, unique methodology is designed for sharing the Little Foot system with the world, exporting its style on an international scale through the Little Foot Academies in all five continents. Each of these Little Foot Academies is run by a Project Director trained at Little Foot , who receives specialist assistance from Little Foot executives and whose role is to implement this successful methodology, adapting it to the particularities of each region, and thereby making sure that our football becomes universal.
To this end, all academy programmes will focus on four key target areas : Motor skills, Cognitive skills, Personal skills and Social skills.
