Training groups  

13 A and 13 B players – All players are training in their teams on Wednesday. As this is a  tactical session, it is compulsory for all players. Players who chose to train once a week should therefore train on Wednesday.

Depending on the training content and the number of players attending different training groups might be formed on Monday.

AIMS team – Monday training session is compulsory for all players selected for AIMS team.

Academy players who do not play for the academy/school team – All players are welcome two train twice a week. However, those players who chose to train only once a week should attend Monday session if possible.

Players training twice a week will either join one of the teams on Wednesday or train separately.

Term 3 Training Groups

T3 Training Groups (2)

Team selection                  

As we use ability rather than age groups, 13 A and 13 B teams have been selected according to players’ performance capacity and their stage of physical and mental  development. However, this is by no means the final selection as it would be possible to move from one team to another at any time during the season.  All B team players will have the chance to play some games for the A team just as some A team players might have to play for the B team (subject to commitment, effort, speed of development etc.)


Competition objectives 

As FC Red Star Academy uses competition as a crucial means in the process of shaping and developing young players, wining games at all cost is not our  prime objective.  Applying learned skills in real match situations, developing tactical and mental aspect of the game is our imperative rather than achieving results.  


Red Star Rosmini 13 A team

All 13 A players are expected to train twice a week. However, we are happy to negotiate the number of session on individual basis, depending on the club commitment. Players who train 3 times a week with their clubs are recommended to attend only Wednesday training session.
