Poland, Today the academy announced that application from foreign sports men can now be submitted for its residencial elite programme.
The Elite Soccer School will be the first independent, professional football academy, offering an alternative to professional club system. With support from the European Union Regional Development Funds, the primary goal of the Academy is to offer a genuine route back into professional football for some of the youngsters discarded by professional system in the form of a residencial Elite Soccer School.
The launch announcement states that players will be recruited from around the world, especially from Africa, South America and the Far East with a view to making substantial profit by selling the players´ registrations and other economic benefits, such as image rights, to professional clubs. The funds are intended to be used to pour money into smaller clubs who may be in financial difficulties, enabling them to buy or hold on to younger players for longer.
There are number of ways that talented players can be identified to become part of the Elite Soccer School Programme.
1. Assessment in their own environments (e.g.: club, school, state or regional teams
2. Recommendation from personnel within the professional game
3. Recommendations from Regional Development School (RDS) coaches
4.Recommendations from Training program staff who work with local clubs
Our network of scouts and coaches will watch thousands of players each season. The Academy has a reputation as a club renowned for its successful development of players, the recruitment of young talent is a priority for the Academy.
