What M.R.F.A.’s Elite Scholarship Can Do For Your Child.

Are you looking to send your child to a professional football academy? Then it’s important to find the best kids football academy to support their development in a sporting career – as well as a fun and friendly team who encourage your child’s confidence to blossom.

At M.R.F.A., we have an elite scholarship Programme to rival professional training clubs. We aim to create a fun learning environment that best develops young players. It is a place where parents know that, regardless of the level of success achieved in football, players of all ages and abilities will gain invaluable education and advice. This will provide them with a starting platform into the sport they love. And inspire them to improve their football skills and maybe go on to pursue a career as a professional footballer.

Below our team have listed the many benefits that come from training with an elite football scholarship programme:

Skill Building

Joining an Essex football academy isn’t just about playing a sport. Instead, it teaches your child valuable skills that can be applied later in life. Playing football is a great way to improve your child’s teamwork skills. It teaches them to follow instructions and work with others to achieve a common goal. Both are really important attributes to instill in a child in preparation for adulthood. They are also taught to deal with conflicts and respect their teammates; as well as respecting authority handed to them from the referee, which will benefit their relationships with peers at school and parents, in the future.

Physical Wellbeing

Being part of a football team offers more than simply an opportunity to make new friends in the local area. Playing football regularly will improve your child’s health and fitness levels. According to the CDC, children need at least one hour of exercise a day and joining M.R.F.A. is a great way to achieve this. Our football training sessions are a great way to get kids out into the fresh air and running around a pitch; burning off all of their excess energy. Research has shown that active lifestyles and taking part in sports improve test scores in other subjects as well as enjoyment levels.

Mental Wellbeing

Physical activity can increase self-esteem and reduce depression and anxiety in children. We also know that physical activity performed outdoors, can improve cognitive performance, self-esteem and reduce anxiety and symptoms related to attention deficit disorder.

Whether you are playing sports, working out at a gym, or taking a brisk walk, physical activity triggers brain chemicals that make you feel happier and more relaxed. Team sports in particular like football provide a chance for children to unwind and engage in a satisfying challenge that will improve their fitness.
