Organization of the Academy
The Academy’s organization involves academy players practicing 3 times per week during school hours, 2x 55 minutes and 1x 110 min. Practice hours are therefore lessons in the FSu school’s timetable and the same requirements apply for attendance, study results and other formal school rules as for other school curricula.
The academy goal is to build help their students become better basketball players in all areas,
- Technical fundamental skills
- Tactical understanding/Basketball IQ
- Physical conditioning
- Nutritional intake understanding
- Teamwork training
- Mental training
- Leadership skills
This is done either through individualized training on the basic elements of the basketball and through team exercises in which the aspects related to the understanding of the game are covered.
The academy is separate from the work of Selfoss Karfa Basketball (Men’s 1st Division), in that participants do not have to be a member of the club, but rather play in the joint team of the aforementioned four clubs under the logo of FSu-Akademía. The academy is therefore a great opportunity for anyone to improve in basketball and succeed on their own terms.
