The Academy imposes on athletes some clear criteria. Thus, for the premature promotion to an older age group and to the composition of the team for the weekly matches in the championships, an arithmetic mean is made between the football performance (training and matches), the school efficiency and overall behaviour.
There will be about 100 athletes in the Academy, divided into four age categories, in two different programs, from 6 to 16 years. After the age of 10, the Academy operates according to a unique project in Dubai where the skilled and talented are involved in all major competitions locally and internationally.
A Recreational program for 40 students runs twice every week and the students are divided as per their age into four groups.
