Eagles Football Academy was born from my passion for football. On the 1st of June, the international child day, on a sunny day in London I had my first coaching session with 7 children. Out of them, 3 are still part of the academy among another 150. Iniatally the academy was only for romanian kids, but the eagles spirit is for all the children around the world, so now we have kids from other countries as well. We have two training grounds, in the north and east of London, several specialised trainers and several won competitions. Our goal is that these kids will become professional athletes that will be a positive example for the future children. This is my goal, to create great footballers, but not only that, great people too, as sport changes us. In the end I just want all of them to smile back on the Eagles Academy days as they think back.
Three Eagles Football Academy teams will evolve starting in February into one of the most powerful football leagues for children and youth, London Youth Football League. On Saturday, the U11-12 group
Eagles Football Academy first training session was on July 1st 2014, when Gabi Dumitru worked with 7 kids for the first time.
As school started, the number of kids grew. For the time they trained in a school gym near Wembley, until March 2015.
From this day we keep our trainings at Burnt Oak Leisure Center. We call this place even today our home.
In order to promote our competitive spirit we organised the first Eagles Cup where 8 teams fought for the trophy. After this special event, the numbert of kids grew, making us wanting to do more for them. This is when we started our collaboration with some of the sponsors.
After hard training and good results we were invited in the Harrow Football league. Where we have teams from U8 to U16. This is were our fighting spirits comes to live. This is where our kids learn to fly towards success.
Lately we opened a new training quarter in the east of London, where the kids play in the Echo League.
