Birkirkara FC Youth Academy’s mission statement is to develop young, talented players who are both technically and mentally prepared to play for the Club’s Senior Team and the National Teams. This is no small challenge, as Birkirkara’s senior team is one of the most demanding on its players.
Our main emphasis is on quality rather than quantity focusing mainly on the player’s personal development. The Club’s philosophy is to have the Senior Team’s core made up of Academy players, who will be brought up in the club’s culture setting example to other players from other clubs.
Our Academy prides itself on having the best of the crop when it comes to its staff. All of the coaches employed by the Academy are qualified and licensed, bringing with them a wealthy mixture of experience and enthusiasm. All the football coaches from Under 10 to the Under 19 have a minimum of UEFA B license, with the majority of the coaches still furthering their studies to attain more qualifications.
Each team has a team coach assisted by another coach to give as much individual attention as possible. These are supported by a physical trainer, and a goalkeepers’ coach. Furthermore we have physiotherapists, a podiatrist and a fitness consultant to help the players in their physical and development needs. A purposely built gym on our premises is also available to our players.
