Academy Philosophy

The Foothills Academy 

The Foothills Academy is a production line of technically proficient, intelligent decision makers. Our Academy is lead by highly qualified UEFA and CSA certified Technical staff, that are age group specialist coaches who understand every age, gender and level and what is required to help them progress through our U8 - U18 Tiers 1-3 programs. We place a significant emphasis on developing the player over the long term, ensuring that they receive the right positive environment and curriculum for each important stage of their development. Our Foothills development Blueprint has a clear DNA in the style of play we want our young players to grow up in, as we promote a possession based style throughout all ages and levels across the club. We will also place a heavy focus on developing and refining the art of defending throughout all stages of our program.
