Global Satellite Soccer Academy was established in 2003 as the brainchild of both Mick O'Brien, the late professional football scout for both Everton Football Club and Blackburn Rovers Football Club of the English Premier League and Jeff Hackett former Pro and International player and currently Head Soccer Coach of the Wexford Soccer Club.
Global Satellite Soccer Academy strives to meet the specific developmental demands of each individual player in our programs, not withstanding their age or ability. Global Satellite Soccer Academy provides a superior training environment that fosters the development of the player through skill acquisition, critical thinking and problem-solving in match play and in life.
Our Academy's vision is designed with the technical and tactical development of the youth player in mind. Coaches work directly with Academy students to develop and enhance coordination, balance, technique, skill, tactical knowledge, vision, and communication. Emphasis will be placed on passing and receiving, dribbling, shooting, heading, movement into space with and without the ball, possession, and various defensive and offensive techniques. Global Satellite Soccer Academy differentiates itself by developing all concepts while encouraging creativity, freedom and imagination, making our Academy an enjoyable overall experience. Our Academy also differentiates itself by offer opportunities for youth players to be evaluated before Academy coaches and football personnel at Wigan, Blackburn Rovers, Everton, Liverpool Selects, and English Semi-Professional Club Cammell Laird of Birkenhead, Merseyside, Northern England.
