If you are reading this page as a parent, then it is likely that your son is interested in joining the Edusport Academy.
Firstly – congratulations! It is our opinion that any young man looking for opportunities to better himself, especially combining his passion for his sport with education, should be recognised as something very positive.
Hopefully having taken time to read through the website, it is clear to you that we offer a serious and coherent project which will bring many positives.
The idea of the Edusport Academy is to provide an environment, that combined with the professionalism of our staff along with the motivation and hard work of your child, will result in a life changing experience.
The Edusport Academy is not about producing professional footballers. It’s about producing professional young men. Young men, who through a year abroad, learning English and living their passion of football are assured a far better future than ever before.
We understand that your child has dreams – perhaps of being a professional footballer.
Here at the Edusport Academy, we have a moral and professional responsibility to ensure that we dont ‘sell the dream’. We are aware that football is a complicated sport, unfortunately with many people who seek to take advantage of the ‘dreams’ of young footballers.
We go to great lengths to distance ourselves from this type of discours. We refrain from ‘dreams’ instead preferring to speak of ‘tangible objectives, aims and positive projects’ and underline the hard work and rigour which is necessary to achieve said objectives.
Created in 2011, with a small group of 18 student athletes, we are now more than 60 split between 2 academies. The programme has grown, quite simply because it works. We have created a professional, serious and worthwhile programme that has proven positive outcomes.
The one thing that we kindly ask, is that you take this project seriously and take time to consider the long-term benefits to your child.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to reassure of the benefits of such a project.
