More than a thousand young people have already been evaluated. It is often the case that young players, observing the expected skills for their age group, have not yet achieved their full development.


There are still some gaps, particularly in terms of technique, tactical and mental attitudes (e.g. perseverance), which can hinder a soccer player's progress towards his goals if he is not properly trained and developed.

At the "High Performance Soccer Clinic and Evaluation" we observe each student's specific skills for 3 hours using a set of standards expected for their particular age group.


We follow a learning pattern based on the cycle "orientation - training - evaluation - game (more fun, less competitive)”, which allows us to experience high level training in an objective and fun way.


Standardized tests help everyone involved in the young person's training process give them (individually and as a team of learners) the necessary skills to drive change.

A 3 and a half hour schedule

Of playful and

challenging learning

We separate young people into groups according to age, preferably in different time periods, prioritizing mornings for the youngest and afternoons for those over 13.

All sessions have a total duration of 3 hours and 30 minutes, the first 30 minutes for the accreditation and registration of parents in App Athlete and 3 hours devoted to the process of orientation, training, evaluation and game.

The agenda is scheduled in the following way:   


30': Event and App IES Athlete registration

30': General guidelines on the work to be done 

120 ': Lessons, Training and Evaluation

30': Play - Soccer and Air  SoccerS

Orientation, Training and Evaluation

know where

you stand

During the first 30 minutes of our itinerary, we give young people a general idea of the work that will be done, the dynamics and attributes that will be developed and how the evaluation process works. 

After that, we spend 2 hours of the agenda on going over each attribute, developing the work in the dynamics of "orientation - training - evaluation" until we complete all the programmed content.

Finally, we finish with activities that complement the process which are also very fun, such as the game itself and the use of the Air Soccer table.

Outcome and targeting

Have evidence to drive development

Unlike most soccer fields and clinics, the High Performance Evaluation and Soccer Clinic provides in-depth feedback on the skills that have been observed through App Athlete.


At App Athlete, parents have access to an individual and detailed description of their children's current abilities, allowing an effective learning direction according to the established goals.  

The High Performance Soccer Clinic and Evaluation powered by IES complements the work of the school or club and allows an accelerated improvement in the learning and evolution of the young athlete.

Soccer can be described as a school of life, through which valuable skills can be taught, such as teamwork, dedication, perseverance and healthy lifestyles.

In 2015, working with young athletes and licensed coaches of the German Football Association (DFB) in Munich, we observed the guidelines for the development of young athletes they’ve implemented.


We understand the strong importance of evaluation to improve motivation and speed up the evolution process of the young athlete as well as bringing parents closer to encourage their children in classes and training.

Also according to FIFA, through the "Youth Football Training Manual” which systematically evaluates performances during matches, the player and coach can see results and progress of the work done in training. Therefore, it is essential to have access to age-appropriate competitions and proper management by the coach for the development of young players who aspire to the elite level.


In 2017, after studies, development and validations, the IES - International Evaluation System platform started to evaluate and guide young athletes, parents and coaches. After 2 years and more than 1000 young people evaluated,


IES is now available through.
