The Academy

The Academy was formed in 2006 to help aid players development in a team specific environment. Each year, the ID Elite coaches select children from the Saturday and Sunday weekly classes to join the Academy for every Tuesday during term time.

With our enthusiasm and knowledge of junior football, we ensure that every player that has gained promotion to the Academy from the School will progress positively in many aspects of the game.

At ID Elite Soccer Academy we will be raising the bar a little higher, and pushing the Academy players that bit further than they would be at the Soccer School.

The Academy is for Year 4 & 5 students. At these ages our priority is to introduce a high level of technique and skill in the basics of football, including dribbling, heading, turning, passing and shooting. To add to this, we shall also be introducing speed, agility and co-ordination training in preparation for the players promotion into Grouville Football Club when they reach year 6.

At the Academy there is an established written curriculum that will successfully and consistently improve our players abilities, and with our written evaluation process, enable us to effectively monitor every players progress.

To further enhance the competitive streak of Academy players, our coaches will also be introducing basic tactical knowledge in small sided games, which will be match specific for the entry of tournaments in Jersey & Guernsey.

The Academy will be introducing two awards. The Most Improved player of the Term, and the Coaches Player of the Term will be awarded to the winning student at the end of each term. With parental/guardian consent, the winning student will have their photo placed on the Roll of Honour section on the Academy website. We hope these awards will be an added incentive for the children to increase their learning and understanding, and also to encourage good behaviour.

We at ID Elite Academy, look forward to your continuing support in helping us, develop your children's talents into the best they can be.
