XL@Football Academy is a player centric professional football academy for young players up to the age of sixteen. The development of each individual player is at the centre of all that we do, enabling us to tailor individual development plans for each player. This unique approach has enabled us to enhance our academy players progress, allowing them to achieve and exceed their goals. We are proud that many of our academy players have gone on to sign for professional football clubs around the country.
Our philosophy is to play intelligent possession based attacking football.
To achieve this, we operate a ‘player-centred’ approach that delivers expert coaching and guidance on a more individual basis, so that every player can learn and develop at their own pace over the long term.
We create a professional environment where our players are encouraged to experiment and be creative and have no fear of failure in order to develop their technique and decision making.
XL@Football have created a paradigm shift in how footballers can and should be developed. Our methodology has been carefully created in consultation with professional football players, coaches, and managers in order to maximise player progression, development and success.
