fulham f.c. and arsenal f.c. ladies training program

individual development in a high performance environment

This generation adidas international training experience enables young players to experience the passion and English style of play at a top professional English side – Fulham F.C. The Fulham F.C. Academy is an important part of the club’s culture, with homegrown talent like Johnny Haynes, George Cohen, Paul Parker and Sean Davis rising through the ranks to first team status. Over 30 players have followed this trajectory, from Academy player to first team regular, since the 2011/12 season alone. The club’s dedication to developing young talent is shown in its recent renovation of the Motspur Park Training Ground for the Academy. Its focus is on individual development in a high performance environment, while also encouraging a supportive environment in which young players can thrive.

Founded in 1879, Fulham F.C. is the oldest established football team from London playing in the English football leagues. In 2010, they reached the final of the UEFA Europa League, losing only in extra time to the Spanish club Atlético de Madrid.

The Arsenal Ladies Development Squad recruits talented female players between the ages of 16 and 19. The Academy program was developed specifically to feed the first team with a steady stream of young talent, and many players have made the leap from Academy to first team. Players have also found success with other Women’s Super League teams, and have been awarded college scholarships in the U.S. and U.K. The curriculum consists of an intensive schedule with squad training sessions, strength and conditioning sessions, and opportunities to train with the Arsenal Ladies F.C. first team.

Founded in 1886, the men’s side of legendary soccer club of Arsenal F.C. has spent more time in the Premiership than any other club. The Arsenal Ladies, founded just over one hundred years later in 1987, has shared similar success to the men’s team. The club is also now known as Arsenal Women’s F.C., or Arsenal W.F.C. They are considered to be the most successful team in the English League, having won 46 major trophies in their short 30 year history. The 2006/07 season was notable, when they achieved the historic quadruple, and became the first British women’s side to win the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

On behalf of our son Hernan (Nanu) we would like to express our gratitude to you, because you went above and beyond when hurricane Irene caused the cancelation of the flights, keeping our kids from coming back home on time.
