As a club that prides itself on providing a healthy balance of fun and challenge for all of our players, we deliver 'Academy' sessions, which is an umbrella term for a range of different player development opportunities.
The primary purpose of the Academy session is to elevate the level of challenge and detail that is delivered in that activity, to ensure that advanced players continue to learn and find themselves in new and challenging training situations.
We provide additional Academy session training for every age group within our club and encourage players who are excelling to train more often by joining older age groups for increased challenge.
Examples of Academy session formats that are used at AM Soccer Club :
- Technical training sessions involving the most competent players, providing increased challenge for one another.
- AM Soccer Club Select teams playing matches versus Pro Youth Academy teams.
- Selection for the prestigious Pro Youth Experience, hosted by AM Sports Tours and providing two weeks of training like a full time professional player.
- Participation in travelling Select squads. Players have previously participated in training and games in the USA, Spain and the Milk Cup in Northern Ireland.
