Important parts of every football club are its younger generations, which are given great attention. It is often the case that young players, who have passed all age categories of the Club, perform the game of the first team. The Sarajevo Football Club, as the first club in Bosnia and Herzegovina, established the Academy for the most talented boys from its own team, but also from the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The conditions in which our young footballers are training are in line with the standards of our Club’s first team. The training process within the Sarajevo Football Club Academy is of developmental and educational nature. The focus of work is on discipline, communication, education and the development of motor and football skills.
Apart from trainings, the members of the Sarajevo Football Club Academy broaden their knowledge by attending regular educations, visits to theatres, cinemas and other cultural and entertainment centres. First of all, beside their development in football, the goal of our Club’s Academy is the motivation and guidance of children in developing their talents.
The Sarajevo Football Club Academy members’ teams are formed according to their age. Top-notch Bosnian and Herzegovinian coaches are working with them; coaches specialized in working with goalkeepers and coaches of physical readiness. Currently, the Academy has three groups of boys - the U-19, U-17 and the U-15 team - competing in the Youth leagues of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Apart from national tournaments, our teams often participate in high-quality international tournaments, achieving significant results.
