Case Study: Craig Bellamy Foundation Football Academy
“...it used to take us a whole day to run through a game and tag our pre-determined KPIs, we can now code a game in under 2 hours...”
— Tom Legg, Head of Performance Analysis, Craig Bellamy Foundation Football Academy
The Craig Bellamy Foundation runs Sierra Leone's only professional football academy. Operated on a non-for-profit basis, we offer the country's most promising sporting talent the opportunity to reach their true potential by securing them footballing and education placements overseas.
Following an extensive annual scouting process, a select group of children, aged from 10 -12, are offered a five year scholarship to the Academy. Our football development programme involves U12 to U18 teams, coached by a team of internationally qualified staff.
Reinforcing our reputation as one of the most progressive Academys on the continent, we turned to the Performa Sports platform at the start of 2013 to advance our player development programme.
The Academy's football department work closely with individual players to determine a set of key development indicators which we feel are important for each player at particular stages in their evolution. The Performa Sports application allows us to visually communicate match performances that can then be tailored into their personal development programmes.
