Armed with an education from UEFA and specialist goalkeeping training, Khalid Isbieh had a vision. Taking his fifteen-year experience in coaching youth into account, Khalid decided to start the first specialized soccer academy here in Kuwait. Platinum Football Academy is a haven for soccer fanatics. Accepting children between the ages of four and seventeen, there’s a specialized program dedicated for every level. With your child in mind, their aim is to provide educational materials and opportunities that will aid in achieving the child’s dream. Be it on a competitive or non-competitive level, their coaches will pass on their knowledge to the children.
Contracting UEFA coaches from all around the world – such as Spain, Brazil, and The Netherlands to name a few – your children will be trained by the best in the business. The director of Platinum Football Academy, Khalid Isbieh, has built his clientele from years of personal training and working in UEFA clubs, as well as acting as main referee at the KNVB. Coaching over 700 kids – ages five to nineteen – his experience has pushed him to start this academy. “I’m involved with training youth as both competitive players and teams during the evenings – on weekends, I run the academy sessions,” he explains, “Throughout the summer, I run the entire refereeing management group for a Middle East competitive league.” This is how dedicated Khalid is to his trade. Only hiring coaches who’ve attained a higher level of education from UEFA, Khalid’s only bringing those with the most to offer to Kuwait.
Believing that expertise and professionalism are the most important things for the youths’ development in soccer, they aim to push the players to the limit. Using a positive psychology approach with the kids, Khalid strives to use strategies that will help the players reach the best results possible. As for his vision for the more senior players, he intends to push them to becoming the best – after all, their ethos is “To be the best, join the best.” As part of Platinum Football Academy’s commitment to the parents, they’re ensuring that coaches for youth under the age of twelve must go through extensive training before they can interact with the youth. Although they’re not affiliated with any international clubs at the moment, they’re working on introducing that soon. But what they can do is send their talented players from Kuwait to international UEFA camps! They also have qualified physicians available along with qualified dieticians to ensure the health and safety of all their players. Part of their tuition includes transportation to and from the Academy so the parent’s don’t have to worry about this.
