UNDER 15 / 16 FOOTBALL ACADEMY
Elite football development programme for U15/16 players
The U15/16 age group is the last step along the Essex Select Academy pathway before players progress into our partner football college programme at the Sigma Academy.
In the U15/16 age group our academy programme focuses on honing players technical skills linked to their favoured on pitch position whilst developing their tactical understanding of the game. Players are given the opportunity to develop their game with additional individual coaching as we begin to prepare players to progress into our partner college programme and senior football.
Players at this age group can expect sessions based around the key aspects of football - stopping, creating and scoring goals. Each training session will incorporate technical practise based around one of the key aspects mentioned, finishing with competitive small sided games. Players will get the opportunity for position specific work, which will enable them to further develop targeted areas of their game.
Fixtures for the U15/16 group take place during the school holiday periods against a mixture of professional clubs, independent academies and grassroots clubs with varying game formats up to 11v11 to give the players a range of challenges and learning outcomes.
