The annual kids foundation program, June- March.

The early stages of development is the key! We engage the kids in the basics of football for a healthy lifestyle. Our foundation program for boys and girls, from 5-16 years, works on their early physical development and athleticism using football. Our coaches, adapt to the slow and fast learners and keep them interested with various methods and fun aspects of the sport. We coach kids considering their age and competency. After their trials or annual training period, we assess them for a change in level progressively. This would mean they play with older children to continue improving their game at a higher difficulty level. Several children in our academy are playing for their school teams and short term leagues.

Our primary focus at the early age and stage is for the child to have fun and learn the progressive techniques of the sport. We however are working in the back ground to develop them in several aspects of physical, mental, technical and social aspects of the sport. It gets crucial when they are about 12 years on decisions of further competitive development. The maximum number of years spent in coaching and development will make a significant difference. We see our role here in these early ages in preparation for the big stage. Regularity is our way forward!

Slot timings may have occasional changes considering facility requirements. Considering coaching observations, students may be moved batches considering their learning opportunity.

Those who have mastered our work in a few years, show merit and interest in competitive football, move to more intense and bigger playing league formats. We are building path ways to hand our competitive students from aged 11 years to other larger academies.
