Swieqi United Youth Academy is currently receiving applications from parents of boys and girls born between 1998 and 2010.
The Youth Academy has been launched only recently and its staff members include technical director Mario Mifsud, academy director Andrea Vella, academy manager Alan Pace and academy co-ordinator Jonathan Bartolo.
The Academy is taking a holistic approach on Player Development. It is not solely about development as a footballer, but most importantly, about teaching the kids certain values and life-skills, which are essential and fundamental for the individual’s growth and future on and off the pitch.
There are 3 phases of development at SUFC, the Academy:
1. Pre-Academy Phase (kids born 2005-2010)
2. Foundation Phase (kids born 2001-2004)
3. Youth Development Phase (kids born 1997-2000)
A unique opportunity at the club, at all levels, from the 4 year olds to the 16 year olds – every child will have, apart from the various football sessions, a fitness session once a week on motor skills, agility and strength with the team, and also a free season’s membership at the Spinach Fitness Club.
The Academy premises is the Santa Clare Primary School pitch in Pembroke. One may contact the Academy on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on the club’s Facebook page.
