A new team of pro coaches and scouts from the best Italian football teams. Take your academy to a higher level. increase the number of members thanks to the quality of your training. Show your players talent to the best Italian teams … make your academy a GFC Academy.

No matter how good a training methodology may be on paper, you need the right people to apply it in the right way. When it comes to the right coach for your child, you want somebody who does not merely follow a training guide and conducts training by “the book” (as is often said).

Our coaches have the experience and expertise to recognise the unique traits of your child and bring out the best in him/her.

They also have your child’s long-term best interests, both as a footballer or individual, at heart and will keep him/her on the right path and not get distracted by quick results.

It is the human touch that will really stand out a football school, which is why our technical team is led by selected technical directors and sent to our camps and our academies, amongst the memberships for the Italian Football Association (AIAC ) Guarantee of qualified coaches.

Our Technical Directors are experienced and highly-qualified (each holding at least UEFA LICENSE ) professionals who are personable, enthusiastic and motivated to work with players in your/our academy. They are true professionals and dedicated to their work, yet always there for your child as a coach, teacher and friend.
