Our Core Values

1. Respect

ACE Football Academy accepts individuals as they
are and for who they are. We believe in embracing
everyone’s differences, recognising that everyone
brings value to the academy.

Our staff treat all students with professionalism,
always greeting them using their name. We hold a
safe space for our students, both physically and

ACE students respect themselves and others, and
express this through their actions – listening and
giving their full attention to others without
judgement or negativity. ACE students are polite
and well-mannered to everyone, all of the time.

2. Inspire

ACE Football Academy seeks to inspire children
and young adults through sport. Our highly
qualified and experienced team of educators
deliver engaging, interactive sessions.

Students feel inspired to grow as football players
as well as individuals, believing in themselves and
their ability to achieve their goals and aspirations.

ACE students focus their thoughts, energy and
attention on the successful outcome of whatever
they are doing. They inspire each other to be the
best they can be.

3. Community

ACE Football Academy is committed to building
strong connections with the local community to
offer young people opportunities and experience.

We believe in strength in numbers and that
together, we are better.

ACE students are team players and do whatever it
takes to stay together and achieve team goals.
They are supportive to the community inside and
outside of the academy. ACE students speak
positively of fellow academy members and ACE
Football Academy in public and private.

4. Accountability

ACE Football Academy staff are equipped with
specialist knowledge, outstanding reputations and
the ability to work innovatively with students to
ensure excellence is delivered throughout.

ACE students take responsibility for their
development and actively seek ways to improve.
They consistently learn, grow and master and help
fellow academy members to do the same.
