The Aim & Philosophy

The Aim

To provide the training and educational (CMFA players only) opportunities for all Football and Futsal players to enable them to develop their skills, individual talents and abilities as players, coaches and referees by providing a total holistic approach with our development programs. We will achieve this by following the player development pathway set out by the FA. We will provide our players with a solid foundation for the future and growth which will benefit Football and Futsal in all areas.


The Academy philosophy is founded on holistic approach, recognising that improving a player’s technical development must go hand in hand with the advancement of each player’s maturity as well as their emotional and psychological well-being. Our programme’s will focus on 4 key target areas being Motor skills, Cognitive skills, Personal skills and Social skills.

Motor Skill

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 player’s 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 emphasized. Collaboration is a core part of these.
