    Academy Vision

The Academy

Our goal at the Ipswich Town Academy is very simple; we want to offer the best players in this region the opportunity develop into top class footballers and play for a great club.

Academies and youth football have changed significantly with the advent of the Elite Player Performance Plan and we have undergone a process over recent years which has left us in a strong position.

Whilst the fundamentals of the game will always remain the same, the introduction and application of sports science, video analysis and advances in coaching methodologies mean that the needs of the modern player can all be catered for.

Within our Academy, we have all the ingredients needed to develop top class footballers; great facilities, a staff who are committed fully to the task (many of whom have been involved as players here), but most of all we have created an atmosphere and environment that challenges players in every way.

We want to develop players who take responsibility and are decision makers. Whilst we have a good record for producing players in the past, we can only continue to do that by evolving and embracing the changes and challenges of the Elite Player Performances Plan.

Our biggest selling point over many years has been the willingness to play players based on ability, not age.

Parents, when faced with a choice of clubs, can clearly see that at Ipswich Town there is a genuine opportunity to progress in the game.
