Meddi Ngoyi, head of pre-training and football school
“The Cité Universitaire’s pre-training center meets all the conditions to offer a quality sports and academic framework adapted to the U14 players of Paris FC. The objective of this two-year course is to adopt a high level training rhythm from the fourth grade and to reconcile the academic and family aspects, which are essential in our eyes. In this respect, it should be noted that all the players go home in the evening from 5.30pm. Thus, by benefiting from five training sessions per week, precise monitoring of their performance and their family environment, the players of the Paris FC pre-training centre have all the cards to give themselves the best chances of reaching the top level later on.”
