Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence

Doha, Qatar, March 20 /PRNewswire/

The first day of the Aspire Academy World Summit 2022 (AAGS) in collaboration with FIFA concluded with a gala dinner where FIFA President Gianni Infantino addressed the delegates and praised the work of the eighth edition of AAGS.

In the evening there was a “chat with the stars” with former England captain David Beckham, who spoke about the impact of Aspire Academy on Qatar’s legacy as host of the 2022 World Cup. He offered his thoughts after a day of inspiring talks at Aspire Academy, where delegates from 32 countries discussed Participation in the World Cup and “Aspire in the World Fellows” members on topics ranging from youth development to data use.

In his welcome address, Mr. Infantino said: “The work you do is exactly what makes us, fans of the game, such incredible feelings when we see the skill of the young players.”

“We will see all the players I coached and the performances we all see and admire on the football field. It touches our feelings and touches our hearts.”

“She makes us cry, she makes us celebrate, and she makes us all fall in love with a beautiful sport.”

In his star-studded chat, Beckham spoke about Qatar’s legacy as host of the 2022 World Cup and the power of football as a unifying force.

“You just have to look at the Aspire. He said.

“They want to inspire future generations to play this game. It is not just about becoming a professional. It is about investing in well-being, health and in the future not only in Qatar but also in the region. It is about the next generation of footballers, or even sports stars, or Just people who want to be healthy and enjoy sports.”

Many of the points raised by Beckham et al. were deepened on the second day of the AAGS.

The first interstellar conversation on day two was with two-time Women’s World Cup winner Jill Ellis, who is now president of the San Diego Wave Club in the USA. She explained that one of the most important things for her is trying to get better every day and that failure can help in the process.

“Failure gives you feedback and gives you a chance,” she said.

She noted that after winning the 2015 Women’s World Cup, the United States failed to impress in the 2016 Olympics. But despite this failure, the United States managed to defend its world title three years later. Jill Ellis explained that after identifying areas for improvement, the US was looking for players who could help address these issues — not immediately, but in time for 2019. Ms. Ellis also highlighted the role of sports scientists and team psychologists in determining who made their team. successful.

The star’s second conversation that day was with Yuri Djorkaev, the 1998 French World Cup winner, who predicted an interesting World Cup tournament in Qatar.

“Playing in the World Cup in the middle of the season will make a difference,” he explained.

“The Football Championship is a different story from club football.”

Encourage the young players to pursue their dreams and remember writing an essay at school at the age of 12 about his desire to win the World Cup. The day after that dream came true in 1998, his mentor sent him this very article and assured him that she believed in it.

At the conclusion of the two-day event, delegates shared the results of the three specialized workshops: making a difference with data, preparing players and teams for competition, and improving recovery strategies.

In the last session, delegates shared a set of recommendations resulting from their discussions in the three areas:

  1. We cannot rely on data alone, it is just a tool for decision making.
  2. We must always work for the best individual player – no one solution works for everyone when preparing teams for competitions.
  3. Individual and adaptable strategies are key to renewal.
