Fall IDA-Identification & Development Academy

Fall IDA-Identification & Development Academy and Goalkeeper Program

ONE PROGRAM FOR FIELD PLAYERS AND GOALKEEPERS HELD IN TWO LOCATIONS! After three highly successful years of the Identification and Development Academy (IDA) Continental FC is proud to announce the program will continue with TWO LOCATIONS. Our developmental academy is designed to not only identify players that are achieving high standards in every aspect of the “Continental FC Way” but also to develop players that are looking to improve in all aspects of the game by providing additional development opportunities. We will challenge all players to realize their full potential. The curriculum for the IDA is in line with the Continental FC philosophies. The program will be held in Downingtown and Conshohocken.

 Selection Criteria

Identification and Development Academy-(IDA) Looking to improve your game outside of regularly scheduled practice while training and competing with/against the top kids in the area?

  • Play for the top team U11-U12 team at another club. OPEN TO ALL PLAYERS OUTSIDE OF CONTINENTAL FC

Identification and Development Method

Technical – All players will be coached in accordance with the Continental Football Club age specific Curriculum. Over the course of the 5 training sessions the academy will cover the fundamental technical features of the game. The academy participants will be given skill homework that will be tracked online then used to evaluate and reward the top achievers.

Tactical – Game related decisions will be isolated in order to provide teaching moments allowing the players the freedom to evaluate their own decisions and self-correct mistakes. We believe for young players the tactical side of the game is not yet linked to position specific moments but decisions related to the basic principles of the game. The players will also be encouraged to use media outlets to expand their exposure to soccer at the highest level.

Physical – Speed, Agility, Quickness and Coordination activities will be incorporated into the soccer specific technical exercises. Injury prevention measures and Nutrition guidelines will be provided for parents and players taking part in the program.

Psychosocial – Our Player Enrichment will be incorporated with the objective to use off field success in all aspects of a young athletes life to enhance their on field performance and enjoyment. Leadership, attitude, professionalism, team unity, work rate, and sportsmanship are some of our core values and will to be introduced with interactive online programs.
