The High-Performance Football School of Italy is located in Perugia and offers training programs for boys and girls aged 14 to 21. This football school is an international scouting center that focuses on developing players to achieve a high level of competition and subsequently secure opportunities for those players who are ready to sign with a professional or semi-professional club.

¿How to access a football academy?

There are two ways to access a football academy: directly or through a short-term course. We always recommend the second option as it has benefits such as:

  • The player can get to know the coaching staff and training system before deciding that the academy is the most suitable option to meet their personal goals.
  • You can check if you would adapt well to the daily routine of the academy, to the language, or if you like the facilities, etc.
  • The player receives a comprehensive evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses, and the coaches meet with the family to discuss their potential as a footballer before starting the annual program.

Sports Program

This academy offers high-performance training for players and goalkeepers. The goal is to develop footballers so they acquire the necessary skills to adapt to the constantly evolving environment of modern football.

The program incorporates innovative teaching techniques focused on developing technical skills, mental game processing, execution speed, and personality. It emphasizes the individual development of each player and also emphasizes the importance of teamwork.

Technical and tactical exercises are conducted in various game situations. Coordination skills and physical conditioning are also addressed to improve strength, speed, and endurance.

Goalkeepers dedicate part of the training to work on position-specific exercises.

Academic Program

The High-Performance Academy in Italy offers different training options based on the Italian language proficiency of its students.

Students who have a good level of the Italian language can follow the Italian school program with all subjects.

International students who do not speak Italian can take the Italian language course to facilitate their understanding of other subjects. After 3 months of the course, students who have achieved a good level of Italian language proficiency can continue with a personalized school program tailored to each student, based on the subjects they studied in their last year of school in their home country.

Another possibility is for the student to arrange with their school to continue their studies online.

The academic program consists of 4 hours of class from Monday to Friday in the morning.

Training Facilities

The High-Performance Football School in Italy has fantastic facilities in the city of Perugia for the development of training sessions.

Training Facilities

The Academy has the Bach field as its main facility, but it also has other facilities that can be used depending on the number of enrolled students.

Bach is a sports complex that features an artificial turf 11-a-side football field. All players will have access to a private bus that will transport them in the afternoon from their accommodation to the fields where the training sessions will take place.

The academy collaborates with several nearby hotels to accommodate its students. The place where most of the players usually stay is Hotel La Meridiana Urban. This hotel offers double-use quadruple rooms, although they can occasionally be singles or triples.

On the other hand, players who combine football training with the academic program stay at the boarding school Convitto Nazionale di Assisi, which provides accommodation and meals during the school year. The school has staff that supervises them 24 hours a day.
