BFUT Cycle of Education for Players
BFUT- Instituto Brasileiro de Futebol since 1991, has been observing, analyzing and implementing the progressive educational cycle for players. BFUT educates the unpredictable and beautiful Brazilian soccer through the BFUT methodology. BFUT is one of the only institutions in the world with an educational curriculum for players of all ages and levels. With the educational curriculum, players have the opportunity to develop from U6 to competitive club, high school, college and even professional players.
BFUT’s methodology has proven to be very effective in empowering players around the world. Players develop a faster thought process with a more unpredictable style of play on the field. The BFUT methodology is divided into 3 curriculums:
- Development Curriculum – U6 to U11 (FIFA recommendation)
- Competitive Curriculum – U12 to U17 (FIFA recommendation)
- Professional or College Placement – U18 to U23 (FIFA recommendation)
The BFUT methodology is taught through the BFUT programs. The BFUT programs for players are divided into Team Programs and Individual Programs:
– The programs are implemented in a group basis (usually 22 to 24 players). A BFUT educator will apply the methodology (through the program) at the team’s location.
