The optimal interval for children’s personal development is between 6-12 years old (the ”golden” period is between the ages of 9-12).

The children come to training sessions to do sports, exercise - they want to run after the ball, to dribble, to shoot at the football gate, to score as many goals as possible.


It is the time when the individual technique is learned best and most pleasantly through small games (many touches of the ball, countless personal decisions, the permanent transition between attack and defense, many goals and so on).


All parents want at some point for their children to play for clubs and big teams, but to reach this level, you need a perfect playing technique, which is acquired during childhood.


Therefore, the characteristic of Viitorul Cluj Football Academy is the multilateral development of the child and not the creation of teams (pursuing this objective by all means leads to the destruction of personal initiative and greatly restricts creativity).


We seek to develop the child ”differently”, we want committed and creative children who are able to make the best decisions under the pressure of time and space.


Dear parents, follow closely the evolution of your child, do not compare his performance with that of other children, do not forget that each child is unique and has his/her own pace of development.

”Viitorul Cluj” Football Academy is the first and only academy in Romania to be an Award Operational Unit.


In the field in which we work, that of youth football, the problems we face are: the small percentage of those who manage to build a successful sports career and the dropout rate for children who practice a sport at a professional level.


The delivery of the non-formal education program The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a source of pride for both the Academy and our athletes who, upon completion of each of the three sections, receive an international certification, which gives them an advantage in finding a job.


This program is one of the tools through which we offer young people a professional guidance for some professions that will ensure their integration into society as adults, as well as a stable job, even if they will not pursue a sports career.


Thus, in case the respective youngsters will no longer play football, the society will not be overburdened with unemployment or non-integration issues.


The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award equips young people for life. It is the world’s leading youth achievement award. In 2017 more than 1.3 million young people around the world took part in the Award in over 130 countries and territories. Since the Award’s launch 60 years ago, it has inspired millions of young people to transform their lives.


By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure, the Award can play a critical role in their development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognised worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences.


The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is transforming individuals, communities and societies around the world. Young people who do the Award become more confident and resilient, and develop skills in areas such as communication, problem solving and leadership. This in turn impact on their communities, who see improvements in areas including employability, health and wellbeing, and educational attainment.
