So, what sets the Pre Academy apart from other private development centres?

Coaching Tailored to the Individual

As a 'one-man-band' our Head Coach has a level of passion, dedication and authenticity second to none, bringing real life game scenarios that are dedicated to developing the player and the person.

Utilising his proven knowledge, skills as a coach and ownership ability as a leader of people to the table providing a genuine 'expertise', recommended by countless young players, people and parents, present and past as a highly trustworthy, caring and selfless support and guidance, within an industry where football and the best interest/welfare does not always marry together - James very much bucks the trend.

Individual player plan tailored to EVERY player’s requirements and covers all aspects of the game (Technical, Psychological, Social & Physical).
Quarterly review with parents/carers & player to update on progress.
Education and personal development: At-home assignments as agreed with coach, player, parent/carer.



That 'Extra Mile'

Bringing extensive value and evolving the traditional 'Pre Academy' player feedback/debrief at the end of each session, on an individual level.  Many players and parents 'swear/insist on The Pre Academy' for that very reason.  Making those 'hard miles' applied in the session all the more worthwhile with the constructive feedback to take away each and every time!
