Training Method

  • FOOTBALL is a sport that requires various physical qualities, so it is important for children to receive adequate basic training. We must be aware of the practices carried out improperly and without scientific basis.
  • Initiation of sport must comply with a true preparatory ritual. The child is a human being in constant growth and development in the physical, psychological and social aspects, and therefore necessary, the participation of professionals with academic knowledge capable, aware and responsible, who do not view the child as an ADULT IN MINIATURE .
  • Athletes who possess various qualities and, in addition, that differentiate them from other players is the way they use these qualities with a lot of creativity and a great power of improvisation , that is, are those that have a high ability to solve problems , we call ATHLETES INTELLIGENT.
  • The soccer methodology in CRUZEIRO ACADEMY EXCHANGE PROGRAM  has been something different and not only in specific exercise practices, but it is necessary to develop "tactical tasks" to ensure the formation of the smart player. The player to get the intelligence to play collectively and choosing the right decisions in unpredictable game situations.

"It is based on primitive concepts of action condition in the construction of a planned set of model-specific collective action, including creative, which includes all the basic levels of the athlete skills for training strategy (tactical, technical, physical, mini-games and collective) within the soccer game context. "

  • Also, before you think of planning, implementation of teaching methods (methods) and evaluation, we must think one infantojuvenil training program capable of forming a new DESIGN ATHLETE.
  • The proposal is a more widespread program committed to the formation of intelligent athletes (able to solve problems); competent athletes (who have skills to play sports); conscious athletes (who understand values, rules and ideas of sports) and enthusiastic athletes (who own behaviors and attitudes according to the sports culture).
  • The philosophy of INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF FOOTBALL offer participating athletes, excellent conditions for development in football, connected to a personal and social responsibility program, making athletes high sports performance responsible in sports and in life, help us in reflection of our didactic action in training (theory and practice). It is with this new vision of "ATHLETE" we will work with the football player.
