Marcelo Carrusca is a versatile, dynamic and highly skilled Argentine professional footballer with more than 15 years of experience. He has played in highly competitive leagues such as South America, Europe, Asia and Australia
His breakthrough was his participation in the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship (United Arab Emirates) playing alongside legends like Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano.
Carrusca Football Academy is supported by highly qualified staff and licensed professionals in the field. With this we will guide and develop each participant to reach their full potential.
We propose a carefully planned age-appropriate and innovative approach. The future of football will demand technical players who have the ability to make creative, clever and fast decisions, which is the focus of our junior development philosophy.
The Academy will work to create new habits both on and off the field, develop life skills, respect and discipline. Our underlying ethos is underpinned by good behaviour, positive mentality and the ability to have fun.
It can be adapted to suit each specific School Football Program’s needs and develop the skills of athletes either in the field or in the classroom.
Our school based Football program is aimed at students aged 6-16 years old with a curriculum that focuses on building the necessary skills needed from the foundation right through to elite game day training.
Participants will grow both physically and mentally and aspire to apply their skills during Youth League Competitions. We encourage a strong work ethic but are mindful that due care is needed when working with children.
Our main objective is to foster and promote the practice of football. More than training children to become professional players, we believe that practising sports is paramount in helping children and youths to develop as people and athletes.
