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:

Designing a (licensing) framework
Accreditation and certification procedures
Assessments

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
Developing a strategy
Project management

In-depth insight.

To identify the marginal gains in improving youth academies you need to ask the right questions and support conclusions with data. By providing clubs with (data-driven) research we help them identify key areas for improvement.

What we do:

Learning environment survey
Benchmarking
360⁰ feedback

We support your search for continuous improvement.

Once you have a good grasp of the quality of your youth academy, it is more valuable to focus on ways to increase performance such as in-depth discussion, ideation and advising. That's why we offer developmental and educational services.

What we do:

Developing a strategy
Expert sessions
Educational programmes
Project management

We gain in-depth insight in the quality of your youth academy.

In order to identify the marginal gains that can take your academy to the next level, you need to ask the right questions and support conclusions with data. By conducting (data-driven) research we provide clubs with an in-depth analysis of their youth academy. We design, execute and analyse the results of these research projects.

It starts with identifying the questions that need to be answered. Subsequently, we design a research method and framework. We analyse the results and lead sessions with key stakeholders to come to conclusions and provide you with a set of recommendations.

Besides the possibility to design custom-made methods, we have two generic surveys.

What we do:

Learning environment survey
360⁰ feedback
