The AC Milan International Academy project offers training dedicated to the coaching and managerial staff of its partners by promoting a continuous dialogue between the Club, the parents and local institutions, which aims to spread the values of sport and AC Milan throughout the territory.
The on-site presence of an official Rossoneri coach, the training meetings with the Milan Academy staff, the organisation of recreational, sporting and commercial events as well as the development of numerous dedicated services are just some of the benefits of a project that aims not only to unreservedly share AC Milan’s coaching and organisational methodology, but also to generate a sporting culture and footballing excellence by supporting initiatives to introduce sport to young people and specialisation in football for an U18 audience.
Each International Academy is structured around the Milan Method which has been adapted to each specific socio-cultural context, and which enhances the technical, tactical, coordinative, physical, athletic and social components of the game of football, in doing so accompanying every child and athlete in their human and sporting development.
The MILAN Method stimulates and generates new questions, values, projects and plans. It doesn’t teach methods, but teaches how to research and critically discuss them, apply them everywhere and then translate them into operational methods.
One of the crucial criteria, “how to carry out training”, and an updated methodology both aim to generate a good capacity for human and educational relations.
The primary aim is first and foremost to promote the general wellbeing of the young athlete and at the same time to enhance their technical, tactical, physical and social skills that are typical of the sport.
Developing the child as a whole through the practice of sport also requires the ability to analyse and plan action that takes into account all the factors at play in the context of the Football School, in close connection with its territory.
