For the future of football.

We believe that investing in youth and talent development is the only way to create sustainable success. We are there to help football organisations who share this believe. We are your dedicated and professional partner to help raise standards in talent development.

Context and environment are highly influential on how talent develops. We apply that insight in our services. With more than 15 years of experience in assessing and consulting youth academies in football and other sports we developed a unique and tailor-made approach.

Whether it’s for a (con)federation, league or club, we provide the necessary insights and guidelines to drastically improve the overall quality of your organisation and talent development system, regardless of level, ranking or size. Each partnership requires a unique and tailor-made approach that matches with your ambitions, challenges, culture and context. We believe that’s how we can cooperate successfully.

We have helped numerous sports organisations realise their ambitions.

How can we help?

Improvement starts here. Please select your type of organisation and the service you are seeking.

Objectively measure the quality of youth academies.

In order to improve you need to measure the quality of youth academies. We perform assessments of youth academies based on our customised frameworks. Our frameworks fit your context, developmental phase and regulations.

What we do:

Accreditation and certification procedures

Continuous improvement in youth academies.

Using quality frameworks is extremely useful to identify areas in which youth academies excel and areas in which they can improve. However, our experience in licensing and assessments taught us that once organisations have a good grasp of the quality of their youth academy, it is more valuable to put the focus on development. That's why we offer developmental and educational services.

What we do:

Expert sessions
Talent development programmes
Educational programmes
