The philosophy of the club and its development strategy is agreed and approved by the President, the Club Management and the entire coaching staff - including the children's and youth academy, adult teams and FCI Tallinn first team. The fundamental principle of the game and style of the first team is attacking, creative soccer, where special attention is paid to the individual, special qualities and abilities of the players, who are willing and able to show them in team actions. This should facilitate both the realization and development of the players, and help the team and the club to achieve common goals.
Preparation of players is based on a common training program and training methods developed and applied in the academy of the club. The program takes into account all the requirements of modern soccer and considers the aspects and directions of soccer in the future. Particular attention is paid to the individual qualities and abilities of young players, the development of these qualities and the development of general soccer abilities, in order to prepare players - personalities, with a pronounced play and mental qualities.
Searching and scouting is done on a planned basis, which we conduct in our club and others, identifying young, talented players. When selecting and inviting players we pay special attention not only to their soccer abilities, but also to their personal, human and psychological qualities - motivation and goals in professional soccer and life.
In training young talents Academy coaching staff several times a year, monitors their results, based on test data as physical fitness and technical elements, which allows an objective assessment of the child's development and work coach. .
Special attention in training academy pupils is paid to methods of their motivation, development of independence, strength of mind, a sense of "elbow", by encouraging and recognizing any decisions on the field of the player as his own decisions, inseparable from the overall contribution of all players in the team. The coaching staff, in this case, does not play the role of instructors, but mentors who can meet the mental demands of children, rather than impose them in a particular game situation. The player is given freedom of thought, he can and should have their own unique technique, his temperament, character, his view of the game and its individual elements.
Raising a player for the main team is not a victory for one coach, but for the club as a whole!
