Project Description

Elite Performance Academy

The Elite Performance Academy is a 12-month program for participants selected by BHF mentors based on their leadership qualities and footballing ability to further develop their football skills, knowledge, and experiences to become role models for the wider community. The program includes an eight-day camp in Abu Dhabi and Dubai which is designed to deepen the participants’ leadership skills, cultural awareness and life skills. The participants are engaged in an intensive 10-day program under the watchful eye of Australian role model Bachar Houli. 

The trip to Dubai was the best week of my life, not only do you get to train with elite athletes in a beautiful country, but you get to spend a week with your team-mates and further your football and leadership skills. The things I learnt at the Academy has helped me to be a better leader and has helped me to become a better footballer.”  Malik – Elite Performance Academy participant 2019
