The training sessions are devised by the club's technical staff and follow the Paris Saint Germain playing philosophy, while adapting to the level of each child.

Excellent facilities

The facilities are of the highest standard to ensure the children get the most out of their training in a safe and secure environment.

More than 22,500 children participate in Academy activities this season, supervised by nearly 400 coaches trained by the club.


To maintain strong ties with the club and offer children some unforgettable memories, two big annual events bring together to Paris kids from all the academies around the world.
