Mary Kok-Willemsen (Owner HFU)
You are tested when working in high pressure... We believe when working with players age 16-20 we need to put them in a situation where they are challenged in every aspect being important. Therefor we created 3 weeks FootballAccelerators called Football & Study. In winter in Spain, and in summer in Holland. These Accelerators combine the following building blocks:
1. HFU Total Football Framework. We designed our framework where every aspect is related towards progressing your gameperformance. Technique training, tactics, footballcondition, mental training etc Everything has the context of how to think, decide and execute in the game. Testing, atches and high intense training.
2. Education block (20 hours per week) Your day has a footballblock and a education block. During the week you have 4 hours of study a day. This can be the choice for Spanish Classes or Football Business Fundamentals with our Accelerator in Spain. In Holland you will have the choice of Digital Marketing in Sports or Football Business Fundamentals. Both are delivered by Cruyff Institute.
3. High Performance Coaching. We believe that consistency of performance will get you long term, sustainable results. With a packed program like this you have Mary as your High Performance Coach teaching you about the High Performance Habits worlds best achievers use. To perform at a high level, while enjoying maintaining great relationships. It is an unique oppurtunity to learn about these habits and being coached while being in the ''performance arena''
