Futuro Sesel: Seychelles Youth Sports Academy


The academy, in cooperation with Progress Sports, proposes to develop Seychelles’ footballers by granting them chances to train abroad. The academy also undertakes to provide a grassroots program for children.


We want to introduce the opportunity to many of Seychelles’ footballers and let them know that there is a chance to improve to a professional level. We want to be he first academy to grant the players and coaches to train abroad. Players who work hard and excel will get the opportunities to train with teams in Italy, France, Belgium, England, …. At the launching of the academy, some coaches from Europe who are UEFA B and UEFA A licenced will be coming to help with the academy. The coaches are very experienced and they will be working along with our local coaches. The academy has also experience in sports nutrition, mental and conditioning aspects.


In April and July 2018 we will be sending players and coaches to train and play in Belgium. This will be a good test for our local players and coaches to see if they can cope with the European standard levels.


Our training method will be very different, and the academy knows that these methods will also contribute as a part of developing someone’s intelligence. The academy is also planning to add other sports in the future, so children can have a big range of different abilities, especially when they are still very young and shouldn’t only be focussion on one sport.
