傑志今日宣佈,旗下的傑志足球學院於2021年3月23日獲「亞洲足協菁英計劃」一星認證,亦是香港首間獲此評級的精英足球學院。

傑志足球學院創辦人伍健先生表示:「我們非常慶幸能夠得到亞洲足協的肯定和認證,並將會繼續致力為香港培養更多未來的香港隊球員。同時,我們在滿分為3星的評級中獲得1星評級,感到榮幸之餘也證明我們還有進步空間,相信傑志上下必定會藉此機會,進一步提升各項青訓工作水平。」

傑志於2021年1月正式向香港足球總會及亞洲足協提交評級申請,評級標準涵蓋20個不同範疇,包括:教練師資、發展計劃、運動科學、設施、足球哲學等等。

隨著傑志成功獲認證,香港足球總會亦獲得亞洲足協認可為「亞洲足協菁英計劃」正式會員。

Kitchee Academy Recognized as AFC’s One-Star Academy

Kitchee announced today that Kitchee Academy have been recognized as the first Elite Youth Academy in Hong Kong by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on 23 March 2021.
 
Mr. Ken Ng, Founder of the Kitchee Academy, said, “To be recognized by AFC and accredited in its Elite Youth Scheme is a great honour.  It is a fantastic impetus for us to redouble our efforts to develop future Hong Kong Team players. At the same time, it is humbling to note that we only achieved a One-Star rating in the 3-Star rating scheme, meaning that we have a lot of room to improve.  I challenge our Kitchee colleagues to take this opportunity to consider thoroughly how we can improve our work in youth development.”
 
Kitchee prepared the application to the HKFA and AFC in January 2021.  The AFC Youth Panel assessed the Kitchee submission in 20 performance categories such as staffing, plans, sport sciences, facilities, philosophies and others.  

Under the Elite Youth Scheme, AFC only awarded three elite academies with 3-Star rating, including Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC (South Korea), Aspire Academy (Qatar) and PVF Football Academy (Vietnam).

As a result of Kitchee’s accreditation, the HKFA was also qualified as a full member of the AFC Elite Youth Scheme.
