Graduates from what we call the Ciro Blazevic Academy (coaches, football academies, footballers who someday plan to coach and start their own academies) will have acquired the necessary knowledge and experience during these several days of learning the theory and practice of coaching.

The football game is a complex process. As is the case with numerous other sports, one must take into account not only the ball and the field, but also psychology, nutrition, communicology, sociology… not to mention child-parent relationships.

At the Academy, all of the above will be studied in great detail.

The Academy will be enrolling groups of 10 to 20 people at a given time. Participants have to be in good physical shape and have prior knowledge of football.

If necessary, lectures will also be held in English, Chinese and French.
