Testimonials

It was so beneficial to learn about one of the top modern academy structures of a top European club. I was especially impressed with the criteria they use to recruit their players. I was also happy that the lecturer asked us some question and got us involved.

Not only learning the latest football trends, this program is excellent to listen to English and build a great nextwork with other participants from all over the world. 

I learned the importace of 4 different biological ages and this concept is necessary in Japan as well. It was an eye opener to think player development before team's win and I would like to implement this in my academy too.

A lot information online is nowadays mistranslated or manipulated but learning from a real person directly is so beneficial and live Q&A has a great value in this delital age.

I was reminded that all coaches look at, in order of, program, coaches and lastly players. We need to protect our players and find solution within ourselves first. Do not blame on your players.

This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge outside of, for example,  your local FA courses. Club LaFresa is a perfect program for this.

I am still a beginner coach and learned so much form Club Lafresa. We coaches not only coach on the field but the relationship with parents is considered also very important.

Everything from the lecturers is very convincing to me and something I can use from tomorrow on the training pitch.
