The Bachar Houli senior Academy is a high-performance football talent program for emerging male players. The program consists of two groups, seniors and juniors.

The seniors group is designed for emerging players aged between 15 to 18 who come from an Islamic background.

The academy involves a  residential camp which focuses on football development, peak performance, leadership and identity. Upon completion of the program a voting process takes place. Participants from the program nominate their peers based on their leadership qualities, as well as their football skills. The top 10 players that get nominated qualify to attend the exclusive International Elite Performance Camp.

The academy’s framework has been developed by subject matter experts providing an industry leading standard curriculum and delivered by experienced coaches.

The Academy also includes two leadership days throughout the year to recap on the program principals.
