What is an Academy individual player report?
An Individual Player Report (IPD), allows our coaches to identify strengths and areas of development for every player at Pro Elite Football Academy, starting in our 5-7 age groups and all the way up until our Internal League Teams & our External League Teams.
Our players have been graded in 4 different ways; Technical + Tactical, Social, Psychological and Tactical and these reports are age-specific. This will allow our coaches to understand where individuals are thriving and what areas need work.
An idea of the breakdown is as follows; Technical + Tactical (focussing on our goal of producing 1v1 dominant footballers) and covers areas like ball-striking, 1v1’s, kick ups and more.
These IPD’s are very important in providing a framework for us to understand our players needs, but also to monitor their progress. These reports will be done twice per year – once at the beginning of their year (or, for new players, their journey with us) and once at the end of the season.
Our Heads of Academy; Coach Ali, Coach H, Coach J & Coach Tee will then work with players respective coaches to identify how individual progress can be made in team or group environments, to ensure that at the end of the season, every single player has improved.
How Do These Improve Our Superstars?
Each IPD for our superstars have been thoroughly thought out and questioned so that the coaches have no doubt as to where strengths and areas of development may be. This means our coaches can tailor their sessions to ensure improvements will be made in vital areas of their development.
Our dream is to create a World Cup player one day and there is no better time than now to start that journey!
All players, those that aspire to become professionals and those that aspire to be the talk of the playground have one thing in common: they want to improve. Our job is simple; player “A” arrives at Pro Elite and player “A” leaves. During that time, we have to improve them as young footballers, increase their confidence and ensure that they understand what work needs to be done to improve.
Creating The World Cup Stars Of Tomorrow!
With the World Cup in full-swing, our superstars are being inspired by their idols on the TV screens. We pride ourselves on the quality of our coaching, so we will be able to use our IPD’s to match the new-level of hunger our superstars are having, trying to replicate the Mbappe’s, Neymar’s & Jude Bellingham’s on their screens.
