At BWP Football Academy we value teaching and learning rather than chasing results. Our technical staff feels strongly that our youth players deserve training and match play environments that promote teaching and learning over results. This enables our technical staff to focus their energy on correcting and reinforcing the player’s behavior, application of technique in tactical situations, executive functioning and their overall personal development within the collective environment. Simply put, we are looking to invest in players and families who want their player to be involved with a program who want to develop the player rather simply win a game or even a series of games. Our frequency of training is 3x a week for the Pre-Academy & 4x a week for the Academy.
At BWP, our priority is a player's development within the context of the whole organism, the team. Winning and the decisions as associated with winning become part of the equation as players get older generally around 16 years old. We want our teams to be successful, but we don't want to win at the expense of the player's development particularly at younger stages of development.
