The Go-Pro Curriculum
The Go-Pro Football Academy Curriculum is THE most effective and comprehensive player assessment tool in the UAE. It provides each player in our academy with holistic feedback tailored to their individual footballing ability. Created and designed by our own Go-Pro UEFA certified coaches, specifically for player assessment and goal setting, it is the benchmark for measuring and demonstrating the progress of all players in our professional training environment.
Our football curriculum has been recognised internationally by a number of educational institutions and football academies, this has enabled several of our Go-Pro players to realize their ambitions and advance in their football careers.
“The Go-Pro Academy in Dubai has given me not only the extended training to further develop my football, but also the opportunity to attend Shattuck St. Mary’s school in Minnesota, USA which was crucial for my improvement. Go-Pro coaches are all highly qualified and motivated and are always aiming to push each individual to the maximum. I believe this aspect of Go-Pro’s training and coaching was instrumental to my progression over the time I attended the academy. Personally, I enjoyed every session, from the early mornings to the late afternoons as I was always challenged and it got me to the next step.”
