The primary focus of the programme is player development, using the same curriculum that is adopted by Everton Academy at USM Finch Farm.
Historically, the Club has been at the forefront of developing young footballing talent including Wayne Rooney and, more recently, current first-team player Tom Davies.
In addition, the programme is able to focus on coach development and club development.
Depending on our Academy Partner's objectives, the programme can be tailored to fulfil objectives. As part of the programme, opportunities may include:
The programme allows football institutions and academies around the globe to receive support from Everton coaches in developing footballers of all ages. The partnership also gives these academies guidance on both sporting and business best practices to improve their sustainability and aid growth.
Western Pride FC, a proud member of the Everton International Academy Affiliate Programme, will hold Talent Identification Sessions during November for the 2021 season.
Most sessions will take place at Briggs Road Sporting Complex, Briggs Road, Flinders View and will be held across two weeks.
