⇓ Hundreds of Marcet players have come to play in First Division!

The Checking Program is a personalized training course with advanced methodology whose main objective is to evaluate both the strengths and weaknesses of a player, as well as the opportunities and threats that he will encounter on his way to elite football. The course, which lasts between one and four weeks, can also be used to evaluate the possible incorporation of the player to the Professional Program (MPEP).

Through a series of individualized and collective tests, the student is evaluated according to the guidelines of the Matrix methodology, a system of objective rubrics based on specific measurements reviewed by experts. “For example, if we’re talking about shooting, we aren’t just analysing the shot itself, but we’ll break the concept down into its different variants such as interior, instep, toe, volley, etc.”, explains Jordi Aumatell, head of the Marcet Evaluation Department: “From there we establish personalized and very specific objectives so that the player can progress in what they need most thanks to a clear roadmap ”.

The results of the evaluation are also contrasted with the level of demand of the largest clubs in Europe in order to determine the real level of the player in each of the competencies, knowledge, skills and values that are ​​essential to be a professional footballer.

When it takes place:

The Checking Program can take place at any period of the year, upon reservation of the course in the indicated modalities. If students want to follow the course for a period of more than one month, their option should be the MPEP Program.

Unlike other courses, Marcet does not tie you to a pre-established date. If, for any reason, you could not come on the dates you intended, you are entitled to change them to when it suits you best. Your investment is insured!

All the players who participate in this course will be able to continue learning for free and from their homes thanks to this program, which is developed through a constant exchange of information between the student and the Coach Mentor.

On the one hand, the player sends recordings of the training sessions and/or matches he does with his club, or also of his training sessions at home, in the park, in a garden, with a wall, alone, with friends or family … On the other hand, the Coach Mentor analyzes the material and establishes constant communication with the student via WhatsApp and Skype, with the aim of correcting their mistakes, solving their doubts, assigning them new goals and, ultimately, guiding them in a learning process that over time becomes more and more autonomous.
