The Football and Life Academy is a programme developed by YMCA Crewe over the last five years. The Academy uses the language and principles of football to deliver emotional self management skills to young people over a 5 day course.
Offering a blend of formal football coaching, training and match playing through a unique “pitch side” learning model, the FLA provides an opportunity for young people to develop team skills , deal with disappointment and manage anger – critical personal skills that can be transferred to every day life.
In recent years the FLA has gained international acclaim. This has included developing the selection criteria and programme of Team England in the Homeless World Cup in Mexico, as well as managing the team. FLA students have played in HWC finals in Mexico, Paris and Poland.
