High Performance Programme
KickStart Football Club was started over 17 years ago and has grown into one of the top clubs on this Island. At KickStart, the focus has always been the developmental aspect of football, on and off the field. We encourage players of all ages and ability levels to participate in our program.
In an effort to craft stronger players and create more scholarship opportunities, KickStart has started a High Performance Program (HPP). The High Performance Program program is designed for the long term development of selected players, who are serious minded and display the level of commitment, football skills and desire to succeed in their academic, sporting and lifestyle goals. The idea is to develop skills and push the competitive nature of the players to move up to the next level as quickly as possible.
The High Performance players are selected from players in the Under-13’s, 15’s and 17’s age groups. In the HPP, players will not only receive additional coaching sessions, but they will also receive additional conditioning training, as well as education in the fields of nutrition; stretch, strength and movement; and in the mental preparation of the game, for example, by specialists in these fields.
We will also be working closely with parents in educating them about the best choices and process for their sons/daughters with regards to scholarship opportunities.
All selected HPP players, as well as their parents, are expected to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which will outline the expectations of all parties. There is no guarantee that the selected players will stay in the program if the standards outlined are not met.
