M.R.F.A. offer coaching sessions designed specifically to the needs of players. We do this by using a Player Performance Pyramid, which is shown here:
This provides a clear pathway for players to progress from 2 years-old, all the way up to 16 years-old. Training is technical based, challenging each player while maintaining the most important element: Fun! Each player that trains with M.R.F.A., whether at the Advanced Academy, Development Groups or our Pre-Academy will experience high quality coaching with an emphasis on learning.
Beginner: Players interested in football and whom are looking to learn more to see if football is for them should attend our Development Groups (the first month is free!) or our Pre-Academy for 2-4 year olds. They will be able to learn new skills at their own pace and meet other players with the same interest.
Development: Players who have a basic understanding of football and want to tidy up their skills, whilst learning new drills, should also come along to our Development Groups.
Academy: Attending our weekly Development Groups generates pathways to move up to our Advanced Academy where players play fixtures against grassroots and professional teams, receive longer training time, opportunities to go on tour and have prospects to trial at, and maybe even get signed by, pro-clubs.
