In a mission to develop young but competitive footballers in Negros Occidental, the Dolphins F.C. Football Academy opens its field in Sta. Maria Football Field for future Negrense booters.
Former national team player and Asian Football Confederation (AFC) licensed coach John Carmona, the owner of the football academy, said that they follow a philosophy of a “positive and dynamic football they train the way they play.”
“The academy’s 5 pillars of the development are technically sound, technically aware, physically strong, mentally tough and possess a good outstanding character with principles and values,” Carmona said.
The said academy will be handled by technical AFC and Philippine Football Federation (PFF) licensed coaches Bon Lagahit, John Moreno, Jonilda Delim, Reggie Miraflor, aside from Carmona.
“The academy does not have a good facility and quality coaches but, it has a program on how to develop and evaluate the players’ skills, as well as the year-round activities,” Carmona explained.
“Moreover, the academy has this advocacy of preserving dolphins, especially around the Visayas region,” he added.
Carmona also stressed that the academy is in its final talks with Jericho Brazilian Academy, as he believed that it will be a great boost for the players’ game development.
The academy training sessions will be held every Monday and Wednesday from 4 p.m. onwards, while Saturdays begin at 6:30 p.m. Interested players may contact Carmona at 09063647915./PN
