Football Development Centre

Sport Esprit Academy run exclusive football development centres.

Our centres focus on Long Term Player Development (LTPD), this is an F.A. initiative. Our weekly sessions focus on improving player’s techniques, skill, strength, speed, co-ordination and agility. Our main focus is to asses, monitor and develop individuals to prepare them for a football environment that they are best suited to.

Players will also be working in a professional and well structured environment and this will benefit them for the future.

Sport Esprit Academy organise football matches with professional football clubs and organise trial days where scouts from premiership and football league teams are invited to scout for players within our centres. The benefit of this is players who are scouted to go on trial with professional teams, will be in a better physical and mental state of mind to cope with the expectations.

We deliver the same standard of coaching as professional outfits so players will be comfortable within a similar environment.

Currently, all our coaches have either been professional footballers in the past or are at present. This pays a massive advantage to players who we work with, as they have a source of experience to relate to about how demanding it is to become a professional footballer. To have professional footballers involved within our organisation is invaluable to the company.

Sport Esprit Academy hold development centres once a week in Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, and Buckinghamshire. Sessions are an hour long and themed for 4 consecutive weeks on a particular aspect of the game. Players who join our development centre are still eligible to play for school and local teams.

“ We have never taken part in other sport related clubs, however I very much liked the way things were run. It was very friendly and welcoming and also nice to see childrens input being taken on board. Both of my children have loved coming to the academy. I was worried about Chloe to start with as she does not like team situations however she has thoroughly enjoyed herself and is now taking an interest in sport.”
