Effective scouting is critical to our success. It requires trained eyes reviewing high volumes of skilled players.

We spend an enormous amount of time researching, speaking with scouts, and traveling to find that special talent. Over time we’ve developed two different strategies based on age.

YOUTH (13-15)

For youth players, we monitor school sports programmes, regional pre-selections, and tournaments. We frequently run open trials and organize competitions between U-15 clubs.

Beyond just physical ability, we’re looking for players that demonstrate intelligence, good character, and a willingness to learn. At this age, it’s about harnessing raw talent and determination to help them achieve their full potential.


For pre-professional players, we rely heavily on local scouts and regional informants to alert us of uniquely gifted players. These players are much further along in their development and are already playing for regional clubs or leagues. We then take special trips to evaluate and make decisions accordingly.

The same rules apply, we’re looking for unparalleled skills combined with intelligence and good character.

Younger players are tested every 3 months to ensure they can sustain the rigours of The Academy. Once they’ve demonstrated consistency, we structure their practice to progress through incremental stages. Detailed results are recorded and studied to inform future training.


Football demands physical excellence. So, recruits must already possess a high degree of physical strength. Yet, our tailor-made exercise routines are designed to push players to new heights.

Aligned with the latest sports science, it accounts for individual genetics and anatomies to maximize gains. Each player benefits from our fully equipped gym and experienced physiotherapists ensuring there are no deficiencies. We track their progress over time and make the appropriate adjustments to reach our targets.


We believe character development is critical to the success of our players both on and off the pitch. Creativity, intelligence, and confidence are all qualities required for professional play. We stimulate these characteristics through a variety of activities.

Our academy runs workshops to supplement the boys’ education focusing on intellectual development, cultural awareness, and social skills.
