The RFC Residential Football Academy is an elite training platform designed to nurture U13, U15 and U18 talent across the country. The immersive football education programme is based on a sports-science curriculum that accentuates player skills, techniques and tactics, transforming passion to performance on the turf.
Our international grade pitch at Bangalore’s iconic Brigade Orchards, Devanahalli, is where the finest coaching panel and international trainers meet everyday to help every athlete rise above his or her potential.
Why choose us?
Our entire coaching curriculum is enhanced by the sport-science approach. What is means is that we don’t look at football training only as on-the-field exercise, but give importance to player analysis and overall technical construct. We believe that attention to each player's individual nuances is crucial in making him the best version of a footballer that he can be.
Comprehensive analytics of each player’s performance are tracked and used to understand his growth and potential for improvement. Analysts work with our coaches to develop a full-scale framework and derive useful training and performance measures that will enhance the player’s game. Historical data of each player is gathered to monitor progress, which will help the student in the future.
A sound and strong mindset is imperative for a player to develop to his best ability. After all, a healthy mind and a healthy body go hand in hand. The players are frequently subjected to confidence building activities, which not only help build the right temperament, but also gain motivation and resilience. Football, as a sport, requires dedication and concentration and RFC Football Academy spares no effort to inspire every student of ours. A lot of emphasis is laid on the psychological development of the students by developing foundational values, which have a direct impact on their performance on the field.
The Sport Science team advises players on the optimum nutritional regime that will allow for superior performance, ideal game preparation and recovery.
The entire football training programme is broken down into Physical, Technical and Tactical & Mental programming. The players are subjected to all the stages in cycles with the required intervals, that are determined to suit each individual player.
A youth (6-12 years) or adolescent (12-19 years) athlete goes through many physical changes due to the natural growth and development process. These changes invariably affect the ability of the child to keep up to and build on his current performance. Fortunately, these changes can be checked and navigated if correct decisions for long-term athletic development are made during this time period. Strength and conditioning training can provide a stable foundation for a lifetime of movement making the child more agile and fit.
The players are exposed to various techniques to perfect skills at different levels as mentioned below. Specific drills are designed by our team to train players and help them gain both basic and intricate skills.
Our coaches work with individual players and in close proximity to understand and monitor each of them. Breakdown of Stages 1.
