“EFA represents a big football family that develops kids to become amazing people & footballers. They give you great advice to keep you working hard in every session.”
Jake was training at ELLË Football Academy since its commencement. He had the opportunity to participate in the German Training Experience in 2017. He has been selected to stay at the EFA partner Academy in Germany for 4 years.
Jake was progressing as a Goalkeeper at another Sydney Academy. When he had joined ELLË, coaches had assessed Jakes skills as requiring further improvement. However, Jake showed tremendous character and focus and his parents were reporting many hours of deliberate practice in his backyard reflecting his passion and drive to chase his dream. Jake joined the Academy with the firm objective to improve his skills. His dedication to improve helped him to achieve consistently high scoring assessment results and improvement in his decision-making.
“They teach you discipline and respect, these 2 things that you really need to become a professional footballer. They teach players not to be selfish but to make the correct decisions and to always scan your shoulder. They also teach you how to beat a player and where to play the ball at the right time.” The coaching staff always observed in Jake a great acceptance of the feedback and determination to apply the coaching points.
ELLË Academy teaches you how to beat players to beat opponents on 1v1s and how to deal with any situation that may occur in the game. Every training is at a game speed and the excitement and passion that Coach Le and Leo bring to the trainings is amazing.
