At SIA Academy we stand out because we successfully train players at a high performance rate. While working on the sporting aspects with the utmost professionals, we also focus on educating our players in daily lifestyle and manors overall promoting a solid respectful enviornment within the academy.
We are the only internacional academy that obtains teams in all age categories up till the Mens Third Division, also includign our U19 youth team in the Spanish Nacional league. After being tested by our professionals, you will be placed in the team that most seems fit for your level of play.
Therefore, we guarantee to our players a whole and controlled training enviorment with the help of our professionals. Always being in contact with the coaches of each age group and category to keep in control the athletic evolution. Through working this way, hopefully in the future we make our ends meet and make our dreams of being a professional soccer player come true.
Our working method is based on a globalised methodology that draws on the different currents of work in training football. With this methodology we can focus at the same time on the two aspects that we consider fundamental for the development of our players: the individual aspect and the collective aspect.
Our aim is to offer our players all the necessary tools to solve all the problems that arise in matches, with training sessions focused on the individual aspects, working to develop all the details of individual technique, such as passing, dribbling, control and shooting at goal.
On the other hand, we also work on the collective aspect so that they can improve their understanding of the game. So that our players can think about all the moments that happen in a match, recognise in the moment and discover the best solutions for each problem.
The main objective of the analysis department is to train coaches and players through different software specialized in the analysis of the game and thus, obtain a technical-tactical transfer through the analyzed contents.
The player must know that for his individual improvement he has to be able to understand the proposed model of play and from the analysis department they learn to analyze matches and training sessions and to establish their own performance objectives.
Monitoring and evaluation
We use advanced technology through which the player is continuously evaluated and monitored all training sessions and matches and by the use of GPS band with our specialists. This allows us to control the progression of our players at all times.
Our starting point is to know our players in an integral way. To this end, we have a multidisciplinary health team (doctor, nutritionist, psychologist, physical trainer and physical therapist) that performs a complete medical and nutritional evaluation that allows us to establish the objectives and strategies to work on during the season. Taking into consideration both their initial physical, nutritional state and their dietary and cultural habits and needs.
We also work to develop the emotional competencies of the players from the moment they join our academy and we carry out programs through which we get to know their personal abilities to help them develop their sporting and educational potential.
For its part, the physical preparation department is responsible for optimizing the performance of our players and minimizing the risk of injury.
We work with the Jaume I Clinic in Catarroja, which allows us to have access to all medical specialists and experts to ensure all the care needed by players in sports or general medicine.
All players take some type of training during the program. Most of our students continue their academic studies at a distance with their school or university in their country of origin, always with supervision and contact from our staff with the corresponding educational center.
The program is equipped with the flexibility and methods necessary for students to train and compete without lowering the performance in their studies, maximizing the use of time and having reinforcement teachers.
If the player is under 16 years old, through the agreement with the British School, as well as with different first level academies, the players continue with their academic development according to their needs and the educational program to be followed.
If they are over 16 years old, our students have the option to continue their academic studies at a distance with their school or university in their country of origin, always with the supervision and contact of our staff with the corresponding educational center.
We provide pedagogical support to the players who study with the US academic system so that they can continue with the online training.
Players also join language classes to contribute to their educational development with the help of our pedagogical professionals, with Spanish classes certified by the Instituto Cervantes. These classes are important to integrate players of other nationalities into the language and culture of our country.
We also have our training department that teaches in our facilities the Coaching Course and the Videoanalysis course, as well as Masterclasses, webinars related to soccer and education.
Our tutoring manager is in charge of channeling all the information coming from the different areas and departments and is also in charge of closely following the player's development, especially his socialization, adaptation and academic performance.
In the short program of 3 months we work with the player from all aspects of the development of the player, trying to focus on the aspects that are marked after the initial assessment where the objectives of the program are reflected and work to strengthen soccer skills.
We focus on all aspects of the game, from the individual aspect for the improvement of technical skills to the collective aspect where the teaching-learning process focuses on the development of tactical aspects so that depending on the evolutionary moment in which the player is, we can adjust the process to the maximum to ensure the evolution of the player and the improvement of their skills for the duration of the program.
