All Albion FC teams will strive to produce exciting, attacking soccer, based on a possession philosophy. We will apply a good work ethic and have the Physical and Psychological determination to apply the correct Technical skills and Tactical play(s), in all areas of the field.

Training Philosophy

Simply put, Long Term Player Development (LTPD) is a framework to maximize a player’s potential and long term involvement in sport over the course of their life. Albion FC sets out a vision that takes advantage of the history and culture of the game to increase participation and to lay the foundations of success long into the future.

LTPD is a program for soccer player development, training, competition, and recovery based on biological age (i.e.physical maturity) rather than chronological age. It is player centred, coach driven, and administration, sport science, and sponsor supported.
