FAs Programme of Excellence


SDMS V Football Academy and e-Academy supports your compliance with the FAs Programme for Excellence. Whether it is evidencing compliance during FA visits, the need for periodic player assessments, or the need to ensure that all player registrations and player profiles are computerised, SDMS software will make life easier by providing a single integrated database of all elements of player record keeping and administration.


Supporting the FA’s Programme of Excellence

The Academy and Youth Development Software provides a record of personal details of names, addresses, telephone numbers, parents and guardians and schools attended for all Academy players. Initial contacts and registration details, first season, age group, e.g. Under 16, type of player and position, whether ‘signed at a distance’ and initial scout and coach. A comprehensive database of all schools in the locality can be established with name, address, contacts, telephone numbers, and youth players attending the school.

Match history, appearance, selection and substitution can be recorded for each youth player together with scores; match discipline and post match assessments. A full profile of the player’s history with the club can easily be managed; logging details of the match, whether a league, cup or friendly competition, whether they played, were injured, or was a substitute and how many goals they scored.

An important aspect of a player’s career is the management of their discipline record as to the offence, the number of bookings and sending’s off on a cumulative basis, which extends into the management of fines, suspensions and censure/hearings where applicable.

A complete record of all player assessments with date, assessors name and assessment type can be recorded. As many types of assessment can be defined such as goalkeeper or attacker type, trialist assessment, scouting assessment and opposition player assessment.

Within each assessment type, a range of assessment criteria can be defined such as ball control, penalty taking, tactical awareness, etc. and the player’s performance graded against it. Grade styles may be numeric or descriptive. A text may be assigned to each grade which then allows the software to automatically generate progress statements for Academy player’s school heads or parents. Set up once assessment types, criteria and grades are re-useable when each player is assessed. Coach, scout and player comments can be added to the assessment. In addition, a coaching or skills development or fitness action plan can be recorded following the assessment.

All data entered in the e-Academy Web Tools is immediately entered in the SDMS Academy database. Therefore reducing the “paper filing” work load of Coaches and Scouts allowing them more time to concentrate on player development.
