- Players ready to train 2 x per week with all the mental commitment that takes.
- Players ready to leave behind childhood friendship teams for more serious team commitment. The PreAcademy player will not let his team mates down.
- Players keen to reach the selection process of the Academy following his instinct.
- Players ready to interact with Professional Coaches.
