Faversham Town FC Academy Philosophy:
At Faversham Town FC Academy, believes in fostering a positive and inclusive environment that encourages personal growth, skill development, and teamwork. The philosophy revolves around the following principles: Professional Coaching: The team of experienced and highly qualified coaches are dedicated to delivering quality training sessions that challenge and inspire players to reach their full potential.
High-Quality Facilities: The academy boasts state-of-the-art training facilities, including 3g pitch, fully equipped gyms, and access to cutting-edge sports technology, ensuring players have the best resources available to enhance their performance.
Individualised Approach: We recognise that every player is unique, and we tailor our training programmes to meet their specific needs, goals, and aspirations. We provide personalised guidance and support to help each athlete thrive.
Faversham Town FC Academy offers a range of comprehensive training programs tailored to the post-16 age range. The programmes include:
Technical Training: Intensive skill development sessions focused on refining techniques, improving ball control, and enhancing overall technical abilities.
Tactical Awareness: In-depth sessions designed to improve understanding of game strategies, positioning, decision-making, and teamwork on the field.
Strength and Conditioning: Specialised training programs to enhance physical fitness, strength, endurance, and injury prevention, ensuring players are in peak condition.
Each student is guaranteed to receive opportunities to play in organised and structured league, The Tactic League. All matches are filmed, and data is collated and presented during post and pre match analysis sessions and discussed with all students to aid their sports development. Pre-season targets are established with each student as they are given their own seasonal individual development plan linked to their specific playing position which is reviewed by them and the coaches at least three times throughout the season.
There is a dedicated Sports Science Programme which specifically focuses on three key physical areas which are Strength, Speed and Agility. Sessions are led by a sports science specialist who utilises the fantastic TechnoGym onsite as well as the pitch-based performance sessions on the turf. We have enabled young people to continue to develop within an inclusive high-quality football environment with previous players now playing at universities here in England and in America and playing senior non-league in England.

Running collaboratively with the playing pathway we also offer and have had fantastic success running our Coach Development Programme. Our students who demonstrate an interest in sports-based coaching are supported through the coaching pathway.
The coaching pathway consists of them being enrolled onto The FA Playmaker. Once this qualification has been completed, they can then progress onto the FA Introduction to Coaching Football. If they still wish to pursue along the pathway, as a 1st4sport approved centre we can then enrol them onto the 1st4sport L2 coaching qualification and onto the 1st4sport L3 PE School Sport coaching qualification.
