Why an academy kit ?

Helps To Prevent Bullying
Clothes can be a status symbol. Many players who are unable to afford the newest fashions or name brand clothing are ostracized and made fun of. The Academy kit puts everyone on an even playing field and prevents this type of bullying from happening. 

Aids In Identifying Students
If a child is missing, lost, or runs away then they can be very easily identified by their training kit. Most schools/clubs have a unique uniform, which helps them to keep better track of all of their students. 

Promotes  Spirit
If every single day, every person in the academy is sporting their academy colours, then a feeling of unity and togetherness is inspired. This helps with the overall moral of the players and ignites a higher sense of spirit and pride.

Eases Routines
Knowing exactly what you are wearing for the day, and having no other choice, greatly reduces the amount of preparation and time that is required on getting ready for training.

Can Be Money Saving
The pressure to buy children, especially the older ones, trendy and expensive clothing is huge for parents. Uniforms/Kits are often much cheaper than buying an entire wardrobe of trendy fashion.
