Kaya FC Academy has a community-based scheme that aims to develop and nurture players of all ages, levels, and abilities. We bring people together from all backgrounds and all walks of life because we believe that football is a unifying force and a common language. We offer a wide range of programs, which can be broken down into specific groups. Our programs are designed to help each child develop their own set of skills, build their self-confidence, and value the essence of teamwork. We want to pave the way for the success of young footballers who have big dreams.
Kindersoccer: Boys and girls ages 2 to 7
Our Kindersoccer programs are divided into three classes—Kaya Tots, and Kaya Kickers, and Kindersoccer!
Junior/Recreational: Boys and girls ages 8 to 17
Our Recreational program (Rec for short) is our introductory program; hence, it is geared to all skill levels. It is open to beginners and young players looking to enhance their skills in a competitive environment and advance both their technical and tactical understanding of the game. Anyone can join the program over the course of the year. There are no tryouts. No soccer skills are necessary to join. All players start at the recreational level, and it is the ideal entry point for any player who wants to be introduced to the sport in a fun and educational environment.
While our focus with this group is primarily to develop their technical base—working on foot skills, dribbling, turns, tricks, moves, passing, and control—we always make sure that there is a good balance between enjoyment and development. Improving our young players’ technical ability is central to our club’s development, and having players comfortable with the ball is an integral part of that process. We always maintain a fun and positive atmosphere whenever we teach fundamental football skills. We also want our players to make intelligent tactical decisions and be able to think for themselves on the field and not be dictated to by coaches or parents on the sidelines. This allows for players to have a heightened understanding of the game, ultimately resulting in more intelligent footballers.
Our Kaya Elite program is our skill-focused and competitive program at the academy. It is for the best young players in the Philippines, so they can train and play together while experiencing high-level coaching and an opportunity to work with the Kaya FC first team. We want to build a strong pool of talented players who can be competitive anywhere in the world.
Our coaches aim to work on all facets of our Elite players’ game—technical, tactical, physical, and psychological—and look to prepare them for not only club competition but also youth national teams, the Kaya FC first team, and the Philippine national football team (Azkals). These players will compete in the UFL Youth League. We want to provide them with an avenue where they can groom and harness their talents and maybe even pursue careers in professional football.
Adult: Boys and girls ages 18 and above
Our Adult program is similar to the Recreational program, except this is for adults who just want to play football for fun. We always start off the session with some drills and end it with a scrimmage. This is every Sunday only. We want to give adults an opportunity to enjoy football like the kids while having fun, learning basic football skills, making friends, supporting individual fitness, and developing a healthy lifestyle.
With our primary focus being the development of foot skills, futsal offers the best way to improve our players’ comfort level with the ball. Working on tricks, skills, and moves, players will have much better mastery. Sessions are at North Forbes Village every Friday.
This program is to accommodate the growing number of female players we have at our academy. We also have female coaches coming in to work specifically with our young girls. This program is aimed at giving girls a comfortable environment, where girls can learn and play with other girls.
Many children choose to have football parties on their birthday, and our Kaya coaches can take away the stress and strain of organizing such events. We provide the kids with a fun football day, packed with games and fun activities that everyone can enjoy. For inquiries, kindly e-mail Chris Greatwich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
