The Pro-line Soccer Academy in Uganda welcomes young children from all different backgrounds, creeds and cultures uniting them all in the same dream - to become a better soccer player.
The vision of Pro-line Soccer Academy is to develop each and every player's skills technically and tactically. This will greatly increase the understanding of each player's role on the soccer field. The Academy also specifically aims to equip our players with vital life skills such as focus, stamina and discipline that will stand them in good stead in all other aspects of their lives.
Our Academy programmes will focus on four key target areas : Motor skills, Cognitive skills, Personal skills and Social skills.
- Motor Skills
This deals with each player's technical and tactical ability focusing on elements such as kicking, dribbling, passing, heading and tackling. Speed, strength, endurance and flexibility are vital elements of these sessions.
- Cognitive Skills
This aims to develop qualities such as intuition, memory, concentration, and decision making. Strategies for self expression and creativity and imagination underpin this aspect of our training.
- Personal Skills
This helps players foster techniques for having control over their emotions or for regaining self control when lost. Motivation, self-esteem and a desire to be autonomous will increase in these sessions.
- Social Skills
This helps players learn how to work together as a group and team. Respect for the rules and acceptance of the decisions of others will also be emphasised. Collaboration is a core part of these sessions.
The Academy will assess its players on a regular basis. The assessment will take the form of both regular physical tests targeting for example speed, agility and strength, as well as formal discussions with our players inviting self evaluation and self awareness of their own development.
