Empoli's Way

What do we mean by the “Empoli Way”? We aim to develop footballers through a vision that combines technical aspects with mental, emotional and, interpersonal ones. Our methodology can be summarised in five points:

STYLE OF PLAY

Dictate proceedings, keep possession of the ball and stay calm. Focus on individual initiative and collective hard work.

TECHNICAL ABILITY

Honed through dynamic drills that aim to perfect every technical skill. The development of each individual player is placed at the heart of every exercise.

TACTICAL ABILITY

Run through several detailed individual and team match situations, to be alternated throughout the week.

MENTAL FACTOR

Train the individual to make effective decisions in match situations. Develop their speed of thought to adapt with changeable tactical and technical scenarios.

EMOTIONAL AND SOCIAL FACTORS

Promote an identity fostering the values of sacrifice, bravery, and teamwork, to be applied both on and off the pitch.
