Academy Saint Louis

Launched in 2020, Juventus Academy Saint Louis is proud to bring this historically premier brand of soccer to the heart of STL. We are the 9th Juventus Academy in the United States, and the only academy in the Midwest. It is truly an honor to have been chosen by Juventus Football Club to represent their prestigious and global powerhouse organization.

It’s no coincidence the word Juventus means Youth. Founded and developed by young men throughout the club’s history, Juventus combines its historic legacy with forward-thinking targets in a teaching method that aims to convey values that go beyond the playing field. The past and the future are inextricably linked at Juventus, much like the white which embraces the black on our shirts. Young people represent the future and that's why J-Academy is so important.

Juventus Way

Our approach

What do we mean by the “Juventus Way”? Following on from our philosophy, we aim to develop footballers through a vision which combines technical aspects with mental, emotional and interpersonal ones. Our methodology can be summarised in five points:

STYLE OF PLAY

Dictate proceedings, keep possession of the ball and stay calm. Focus on individual initiative and collective hard work.

TECHNICAL ABILITY

Honed through dynamic drills that aim to perfect every technical skill. The development of each individual player is placed at the heart of every exercise.

TACTICAL ABILITY

Run through several detailed individual and team match situations, to be alternated throughout the week.

MENTAL FACTOR

Train the individual to make effective decisions in match situations. Develop their speed of thought to adapt with changeable tactical and technical scenarios.

EMOTIONAL AND SOCIAL FACTOR

Promote an identity fostering the values of sacrifice, bravery and teamwork, to be applied both on and off the pitch.
