Beerschot Youth Development System

Beerschot ACADEMY MISSION

The youth academy occupies a central place in the club’s operation and is regarded as an essential task. We want to be a high-quality football institute where talent is given the opportunity to develop optimally. By offering the players this possibility, we want to achieve a maximum flow to the 1st team.
We want to create a motivating, pedagogical and methodically responsible environment in which youth players can develop themselves on a sports-technical and human level and prepare for a career as a professional football player.

Beerschot sees youth football as an individual sport with a collective character . We want to maximize the potential that a player has. We also believe that everyone deserves a good time during this process. In order to reinforce this ambition and to optimize the individual development of the player, we also provide training for our trainers, team coaches.

Beerschot ACADEMY VISION

Beerschot youth guides and coaches young football players from 6 to 19 years old. We want to attract talented youth players from the region (city, the periphery and the province) and offer the ideal opportunities to develop their talent.

Beerschot youth wants to use their all-round football potential to generate excellent football players by offering a total development with ample attention to the technical training plan, football and study, ethical and educational values.

The technical training plan must be as complete as possible. It contains a planning for the tactical, physical, mental and technical development of the player.
The choice of trainers and supervisors and guidance must entail the necessary quality to achieve the above objectives.
The necessary logistical conditions must be created to be able to achieve these objectives.

Stadium

The Olympisch Stadion was constructed specifically for use as the primary venue for the Summer Olympics that were held in Antwerp in 1920. The following competitions took place there during those games: athletics, equestrian, field hockey, football, gymnastics, modern pentathlon, rugby union, tug of war, weightlifting, and demonstration korfball.

After the conclusion of the Olympic Games, it was repurposed as a football stadium. Its current tenant is K Beerschot VA. There is no trace left of the athletics track that was used in the Olympics. There are approximately 12,000 seats available.
