Football Tours International is proud to announce the opening of the FTI Academy.
The football academy will be available to players between U8 & U11 age groups with the sessions being held at Football World Leeds, Cross Green, LS9 0RA on a Friday evening between 17.30pm and 18.30pm. Each player attending the FTI academy will be entitled to one free taster session with the normal cost at £4 per session.
FTI will run a development session which will be open to players of any ability. During this session we will look at the basics of dribbling, passing, shooting, heading, team work, and an outline of formations and field positioning. Our coaches will put on a number of different sessions to help improve not only the individual skills but the players knowledge of the game.
Along side of the development sessions FTI will run the Academy which will be for players who have been invited to attend the sessions, these players will be graduates from the development sessions who have shown good ability in the above disciplines or who have been scouted by the FTI scouting network. These sessions will be more advanced putting the players through their paces and testing their ability to improve them as footballers.
The FTI Academy will have a number of friendly matches against elite and academy opposition throughout the year, this will allow our coaches to assess the players on their improvement while in the FTI Academy and point out any improvements that are needed. The FTI coaching staff have links with a number of professional clubs including Leeds United, Manchester City, Barnsley, Hull City, Huddersfield Town, Bradford City, York City plus many more. If any of our players show they have the ability to play in an academy they will be offered trials with one or more of the above clubs.
