3 As parents, we want what s best for our children. This is the basic principle that guides all of our efforts at the Montreal Impact Academy since We strive to offer the best possible coaching for our young players, at all levels, to ensure their development. Whether it s technically, with our coaches, therapists, mental health trainers, our doctor and support staff, or be it academically with the assistance that we offer for homework or accommodation with host families, our only goal is to create an ideal environment for the development of our youth. We place a heavy emphasis on our Academy, because it is one of the pillars of the identity of the club and our philosophy to develop local players will strengthen the sense of belonging between our fans and the club. This approach has clearly paid off since 2010, with a number of professional contracts being signed in MLS by players from the Academy, but also with national team appearances by a number of young players from within our system. In addition, our youth teams have had some exceptional performances, including our U16 and U18 teams who finished amongst the best of 80 academies across the U.S. and Canada last season. All this has been in conjunction with a very high success rate in school. Based on these results, and the desire to develop local talent for the pro team as proven by the recent signings of Anthony Jackson-Hamel, Jérémy Gagnon-Laparé and Louis Béland-Goyette, we ve decided to go even further with the construction of our own training centre in This new centre, located in the old Caserne Letourneux close to Stade Saputo, will finally allow us to consolidate all of our teams under one roof to better ensure their development. As we seek to prepare our young players to hopefully join the professional ranks one day, we also want to prepare them for life. To do this, we want them to feel like they are a part of a family as they step through the doors of the Academy. With this new training facility, they will have a place they could call home.

11 DIRECTOR S MESSAGE DIRECTOR S MESSAGE The Montreal Impact Academy is more than just a sports structure to develop elite athletes. It is also an environment for growth, passion and emotion, where effort, perseverance, friendship and humility are stressed daily to reinforce the club s identity. Understanding and adhering to these values are keys to becoming a member of the Montreal Impact Academy. We hope that the young people who enter the Academy feel that they are becoming part of a family. Therefore, all of us educators, administrators and therapists have the responsibility of communicating the values, knowledge and culture of the club in order to ensure that our Academy members are at the highest level both on and off the field. We are there for them to lean on in order to become balanced men with the hopes of becoming pro soccer players one day. The club provides the best possible conditions for the development of young players. Yet, they have another serious challenge as we monitor their educational performances very closely as well. We require these young men to prepare for two potential futures, whether as a pro or through their studies and this over a period of 11 out of 12 months. We aim to communicate these values by remaining true to our principles and preparing them for their future and the future of the club. It s a challenge that we take seriously every day. We are determined to create a permanent environment suited to the growth of our young athletes. Here, they will share, debate and be creative. At the Montreal Impact Academy, we want our players to progress and to play the way they live their lives well, with passion and emotion. With these types of players as part of the program, following the Montreal Impact Academy will not only be an experience as a sports fan, but an emotional one as well. Philippe Eullaffroy 11

12 WHAT IS THE ACADEMY? WHAT IS THE ACADEMY? The Montreal Impact Academy s primary objective, across all of its programs, is to develop young soccer players into professionals in MLS by offering them a scholastic program adapted to their training schedules, in a structure inspired by European Academies. The Montreal Impact is the first and only professional club in MLS and in North America for that matter, to offer a sports-etudes program. Starting at 12 years old, the participant becomes part of an educational program recognized by the Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sports, which is adapted towards our training schedule in order to practice every weekday afternoon. This program is the first step that a player can take, without leaving Quebec, in becoming a professional soccer player. It assembles young players that will take part, develop with and represent one club: the Montreal Impact. The Academy teaches a discipline for life oriented towards performance and education, social integration and the achievement of high objectives. Our goal is also to develop the best possible player who is a responsible person with strong interpersonal skills and adept at the values fundamental to sports: effort, team spirit, respect of the rules and most of all respect of self. By emphasizing the importance of education and sport, this philosophy is the best way to educate youth who are preparing for the difficult road to becoming professional soccer players, all while helping to build their identity. To achieve these objectives, a regular evaluation program is directed by the coaches and technical staff to measure progress. Players will get a trimestral breakdown of their performance to get an idea of their level. The values of the Montreal Impact organization are as present in education, at school and in everyday life as they are on the pitch. The concepts of respect and communication between educators and players are stressed.

13 THE STAFF AND INFRASTRUCTURES THE STAFF Close to 15 people work full-time in technical, administrative and medical avenues as well as mental health and physical trainers, in order to ensure the daily development of the 120 Academy members. A DAILY PERSONALIZED MEDICAL FOLLOW-UP With the regularity of training and high level matches, the Academy makes a point of ensuring a personalized follow-up of its players to prevent injury and get the players into top physical condition. This supplemental support is conducted by a head athletic therapist, an assistant therapist and a physical trainer. A chief physician and family physician are also made available to the players. The medical component is an essential piece in training a young player. Our therapists are present at all training sessions and games. Daily discussions with the trainers and the players are held in order to detect any anomalies, look after injuries and take any necessary action to remain in full health and well-being.

16 THE EDUCATIONAL ASPECT THE EDUCATIONAL ASPECT Educational Support The Academy s sports-etudes program offers a close collaboration between the academic component and the sports component with a clear and strict rule: priority is given to academic success before sporting success. It is important for us to maintain a good academic profile with an overall average of 75% and a minimum of 65% in math and French. During his training, the student-athlete will receive individualized pedagogical guidance: A specific education adapted accordingly to the needs of the student-athlete. A system in place for lessons missed during sporting activities (games, competitions or national team appearances). A supervised and mandatory study period every day (60 min) with access to tutors. Recovery and tutorial classes at the request of a coach, teacher, parent or student. Prepared schedules The program is unique in North America and specific to the province of Quebec. This formula is an indispensable tool to adapt a regular academic schedule that still allows training at a high level. This program is recognized and certified by the Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sports and by the Quebec Soccer Federation. Classes end at 12:25pm, and go from Monday to Friday, to allow for training in the afternoon. Example of a typical day 8:05am: classes begin 12:25pm: classes end + lunch 1:15pm: bus arrives at training centre (public transit or shuttle service provided by the club for certain schools) 1:30-3pm: training for the U13 and U14 groups while U16 and U18s are in mandatory study period 3-4:30pm: training for the U16 and U18 players while the U13 and U14 are in mandatory study period 4:45pm: end of day for all The schedule will be adjusted during exam periods, and according to the calendar of competitions.

19 THE SPORTING ASPECT COMPETITIVE MATCHES TO ACCOMPANY THEM IN EVERY STAGE OF THEIR DEVELOPMENT U23: USL PRO Starting in 2015, the U23 team will be joining a professional championship: USL PRO. This team will be formed mostly of U23 players, and players from the first team who need playing time. The USL PRO is a professional championship, which corresponds to the third division of the North American soccer pyramid, behind MLS and the NASL. In 2015, the championship will be made up of 24 teams grouped into two conferences. All MLS teams will have a connection to the league, with either a reserve team or an affiliation with an existing club. FC Montreal will play in the Eastern Conference alongside Toronto FC, the Rochester Rhinos, Pittsburgh River Hounds, Harrisburg City Islanders, New York Red Bulls, Louisville City FC, St-Louis FC, Richmond Kickers, Charlotte Independence, Charleston Battery and Wilmington Hammerheads FC. The U18s and U16s: USSDA The U18 and U16 teams have played in the USSDA since 2012, a league created in 2009 for the development of soccer academies in the United States and organized by the US Soccer Federation. The USSDA represents the highest level of competition for youths in these categories in North America. This League includes some 80 youth teams, both from clubs and academies in the United States and Canada, including Major League Soccer (MLS), the North American Soccer League (NASL) and the United Soccer Leagues (USL). Our U16 and U18 teams play about 30 regular season games. The season begins in early September and finishes in early June. Note: there is a winter break between December and late February. The regular season is followed by playoffs to crown a champion in each category (see format on page 20). At the end of the season, in just their second year in the USSDA, the U16 and U18 teams both qualified for the playoffs. The Impact U18s made it all the way to the semi-finals, winning bronze in beating FC Dallas by a 3-2 score, thus finishing as the best U18 Academy team from an MLS club. 19

20 THE SPORTING ASPECT ADDITIONAL USSDA EVENTS The Winter Showcase in Florida: end of November The teams play three games during this event. Opponents are selected at random, out of conference. Results count for the regular season standings and thus playoff qualification in June. Playoffs and the Summer Showcase: late June and July After a season lasting ten months, the top two teams from the Western Conference automatically qualify for the playoffs, while the Eastern and Central Conferences see its first three qualify. In addition, 13 teams will be invited through a wild card system based on the average of points collected throughout the season. The teams will be placed in eight groups of four teams. The same procedure applies to both age groups. The U14s and U13s: friendlies To remove any pressure based on results and in order to optimize the working environment for these age groups, our U13 and U14 teams are not involved in a regular league, but participate year-round in friendlies against teams from MLS clubs, Quebec, Ontario, the United States, in addition to taking part in tournaments. National team With the recent development of professional clubs and their academies in Canada, the Canadian Soccer Association builds and works with its five Canadian professional teams: the Montreal Impact, Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, FC Edmonton and the Ottawa Fury FC, in order to develop the next generation who will represent Canada at the international level, from U15. Each year, many Academy players take part in training and selection camps, as well as friendly matches to prepare for qualifying matches for major international competitions: the U-17 and U-20 FIFA World Cup, the Olympic Games, the Pan American Games and the biggest international tournament of them all: the FIFA World Cup. Since 2011, over 60 Academy players have been called for national team duty (U15-U16-U17-U18-U20-U23 and senior) IN 2013: Nevello Yoseke and Marco Dominguez, as well as defender Aron Mkungilwa, all three with the Impact U18s, were selected by the Canadian national team for the U-17 FIFA World Cup, United Arab Emirates, from October 17 to November 8. IN 2014: For the first time in our young history, three players from the Academy were called in for national team duty: Karl W. Ouimette, Jeremy Gagnon-Lapare and Maxim Tissot. 20

21 THE ACADEMY INSTITUTE AND COMMITMENT TO THE COMMUNITY THE ACADEMY INSTITUTE AND COMMITMENT TO THE COMMUNITY Throughout the year, our Academy members are involved in activities outside of soccer as part of the Academy Institute, which will be used to help our players in their development, their personal culture and as a tool to become a professional player. For example, dance and zumba classes to work coordination and expression, theatre to work communication and group relationships, courses on nutrition and the importance of the preparation off the pitch are all available. The Montreal Impact Academy s philosophy also places an importance on the involvement of its players in the community, because our objective is to train our boys to become responsible men and citizens through various projects, including Leucan and the Néz pour Vivre initiatives that help young people affected by cancer, or student retention by working with schools. 21

22 HOUSING, TRANSPORT AND COSTS ACCOMMODATIONS For players coming from afar and who require accommodation, we offer: Host families: for players under 16 We offer a list of host families with different profiles.
