01.10.13 The Academy is now launched
The Swieqi United Youth Football Academy is not just another football nursery. Our goal is to develop great individuals. The Academy is taking a holistic approach towards football as it shall we will transmit certain values and life-skills which every individual in today's society would need in the real world.
Our football programme is divided into three phases: the Pre-Academy Phase is for kids from 4-9, the Foundation Phase is for kids from 10-13 and the Youth Development Phase is for kids from 14-17.
Every phase has its own objectives, and each phase has its Scheme of Work relevant to the particular age group. The club philosophy however is instilled immediately from day one, and habits are drilled in. We look at the overall development of the individual and it is why we have affiliated ourselves with the Spinach Fitness Club.
We offer our players one group session a week and a free season membership. Another affiliation we have is with Brescia Calcio, who are currently in the Serie B in Italy. We would like to develop great players, and if there is anyone with potential, we have the contacts to push that individual even overseas.We are proud of our club structure, with two coaches helping out on Saturday mornings - Jose Luis and Alan Talbot. Leon Camilleri will be assisting the U/17 squad and will also be delivering talks on the mental side of the game.
Alan Pace and Jonathan Bartolo are Academy Manager and Academy Co-ordinator respectively.We are still receiving applications for kids interested to join our Academy, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
