CHARLTON ATHLETIC ACADEMY

Developing Young Players
The ‘Charlton’ Way
The Young Player and The Coach
Our young player has a ‘dream’. He wants to be a professional football player.
Having identified the young player as talented enough to enter the Charlton Academy, as coaches we should
recognise the dream. With our knowledge and experience we must ensure the young player has perspective to
his ambition.
It is a long term process developing talent towards our primary aim at the Academy of producing players for the
first team. Therefore the process must be structured so that coaches and players know and see where they are
going.
A secondary aim, even if our young players do not represent out first team is to develop their talent to a proficient
standard, technically and tactically, enabling them to perform at a good level of senior football.
As indicated, there is no ‘short term fix’, the environment must be hard-working, challenging, disciplined and
organised to ensure it is enjoyable and rewarding for players and coaches alike.
The ‘Charlton Way’ refers to the type of player that we like at the Academy and the philosophy that comes over
in the way that player and team play the game.
Key features of the ‘Charlton Way’ would be:
•

Taking care of the ball in control and passing.

•

Playing the passing game in / from all thirds of the pitch.

•

Players to have a broad base and proficiency in all technical skills and to perform these with speed
where necessary creativity.

•

Having an understanding of how and when to move, receiving the ball feet or space. To execute this
movement at speed with body and mind.

•

To have players with individuality, players that can dribble, run, turn and execute inventive passes to
beat opponents.

•

Play the game with spirit, fair play.

•

Play the game with a ‘desire to win that is greater than the fear of losing’.

•

Recognising that …….
o

Together

o

Everyone

o

Achieves

o

More

……on and off the field.

Achieving the above ingredients in player and team performance comes as a result of planning, evaluating (for
player and coach), progression, continuity and patience in developing the potential.
The ‘Academy Development Targets’ will enable us to know what we are trying to achieve in the various age
bands. They should be a constant reference point when we are assessing player and team performance. We
must strive to meet the targets, recognise that some players will get there before others and also be careful not
to jump ahead too soon.
The ‘Academy Practice Booklet’ is a document of preferred practices across the range of topics. These practices
whether technical or tactical must be used in sessions on a regular basis. That way our players will experience
the learning situation again and again. Repetition is necessary for understanding, skilful execution and
proficiency. As coaches we also will be familiar with the practices and most important the learning and
development with our attention to detail.
Although divided into 9-11 and 12-16 practices, this can be take generally as some practices in both categories
are appropriate across the age groups with modifications as you, the coach, feel necessary.

space.
(iii)

With extra player in centre (M player) X2 set for X1. X1 angled support, play to M player. X2 stays
wide and then makes forward run. M opens body to play return to X2 and finally forward pass to X3.
Emphasise weighting of pass to feet and space and quick execution in possession play to go

Charlton Way practices

  • 1. CHARLTON ATHLETIC ACADEMY Developing Young Players The ‘Charlton’ Way
  • 2. The Young Player and The Coach Our young player has a ‘dream’. He wants to be a professional football player. Having identified the young player as talented enough to enter the Charlton Academy, as coaches we should recognise the dream. With our knowledge and experience we must ensure the young player has perspective to his ambition. It is a long term process developing talent towards our primary aim at the Academy of producing players for the first team. Therefore the process must be structured so that coaches and players know and see where they are going. A secondary aim, even if our young players do not represent out first team is to develop their talent to a proficient standard, technically and tactically, enabling them to perform at a good level of senior football. As indicated, there is no ‘short term fix’, the environment must be hard-working, challenging, disciplined and organised to ensure it is enjoyable and rewarding for players and coaches alike. The ‘Charlton Way’ refers to the type of player that we like at the Academy and the philosophy that comes over in the way that player and team play the game. Key features of the ‘Charlton Way’ would be: • Taking care of the ball in control and passing. • Playing the passing game in / from all thirds of the pitch. • Players to have a broad base and proficiency in all technical skills and to perform these with speed where necessary creativity. • Having an understanding of how and when to move, receiving the ball feet or space. To execute this movement at speed with body and mind. • To have players with individuality, players that can dribble, run, turn and execute inventive passes to beat opponents. • Play the game with spirit, fair play. • Play the game with a ‘desire to win that is greater than the fear of losing’. • Recognising that ……. o Together o Everyone o Achieves o More ……on and off the field. Achieving the above ingredients in player and team performance comes as a result of planning, evaluating (for player and coach), progression, continuity and patience in developing the potential.
  • 3. The ‘Academy Development Targets’ will enable us to know what we are trying to achieve in the various age bands. They should be a constant reference point when we are assessing player and team performance. We must strive to meet the targets, recognise that some players will get there before others and also be careful not to jump ahead too soon. The ‘Academy Practice Booklet’ is a document of preferred practices across the range of topics. These practices whether technical or tactical must be used in sessions on a regular basis. That way our players will experience the learning situation again and again. Repetition is necessary for understanding, skilful execution and proficiency. As coaches we also will be familiar with the practices and most important the learning and development with our attention to detail. Although divided into 9-11 and 12-16 practices, this can be take generally as some practices in both categories are appropriate across the age groups with modifications as you, the coach, feel necessary.
