At AISB we are extremely proud to start the AISB Football Academy in School Year 2018-19.
We look forward to continuing our progress with the development of opportunities for our students to be professionally coached and supported in the great international sport of soccer.
In this first year of the Academy, we are establishing a strong foundation of football in the school, where our students will learn and develop football and team skills under the guidance of a professional coach.
The academy is designed to develop individual skills during twice weekly training sessions, with friendly fixtures and tournaments throughout the year to build on team spirit.
The AISB Academy is coached by Mr. Joshua Shepherd. Josh 26, is from England. He holds an English FA ‘B’ licence. For the past six years Josh has coached and managed youth teams at both Professional and Semi Professional Clubs across the globe including Gambia and Spain. Before Coaching Josh played as a Goalkeeper in the English Northern Conference, The Australian State League and the Filipino Premier League.
Our Academy Director Darren Jackson personally selected Josh from numerous applications, one of those qualities was the ability to nurture young talent in an environment conclusive to the philosophy of the AISB Football Academy.
The structure of the Academy
The Academy is split into genders, with each gender having an U9, U11 & U13 category. All age groups train twice a week with regular fixtures and tournaments throughout the year.
AISB teams will be invited to at least 6 tournaments throughout the year that will take place in Bangkok.
During the school year there will be several Sunday fixtures planned against local Thai academies. This will give our students an excellent opportunity to put into practice what they have learnt during training.
What is the cost?
The cost per session is similar to regular activities conducted by outside providers. Each term varies in price depending on the number of weeks in that term.
Training times take place either from 3:15-4:15pm or 4:15-5:15pm, on weekdays.
