The goal of the Finesse Academy is to develop talented young players into the best possible version of themselves. The Finesse Academy uses the TIPS model, which stands for Technique, Intelligence, Personality and Speed. P and S are generally made up from the players personal make up and genes these attributes a coach can only develop so far, I and T can always be developed further. The Finesse Academy trains at a high intensity with the philosophy of every player must come out of training having touched the football a minimum of a thousand times.
If you are a keen player willing to learn as much as you can and develop at a faster rate Finesse can offer one to one training with one of our experienced and skilled coaches.
These sessions are tailored to suit the player’s specific requirements.
We have a number of sessions available during the week, we offer 7 spaces per age group from U7’s-U16’s. By keeping the player to coach ratio small allows for increased specification.
During the holidays we offer bespoke position specific training sessions. Players learn to play like Rio Ferdinand-Cannavaro as a Center Back, Ashley Cole & Dani Alves as attacking full backs, Kroos-Pogba-Iniesta in the middle of the park, Ronaldo-Messi-Mbappe-Neymar as forwards. The Finesse Academy studies the movements and techniques used by the best players in the world to support our Position Specific Programme.
The Last Saturday of every month we host a 3V3 tournament with the players managing themselves this is to increase Leadership, Communication & Teamwork skills
Quarterly we play in a Showcase Game allowing the selected players from the Finesse Academy to play in front of Professional Football Scouts. This has been a huge success and having lots of players rather signed into professional clubs or having a fantastic experience been on trial at a professional football club
We aim to play 5-10 development games throughout the calendar year.
These games/Tournaments can be anything from 3V3, 5V5, 7V7, 9V9, 11V11 and Futsal.
