It was founded in the 1950s and named after former Partizan players Bruno Belin, Čedomir Lazarević and Branko Nadoveza.[1] The school is well known for its dedicated work with youngsters.[1] Its training philosophy is not only the development of football players, but also to care of their growth and personality forming, while also teaching the sporting spirit and the loyalty to the club.[1] There are around 400 youngsters classified by age categories.[1] There are six age groups, four compete at the level of the Football Association of Serbia, the U17, U16, U15 and U14, while the U13 and U12 compete at the level of the Football Association of Belgrade.[1] Below U12 level there are no official competitions, but players do play in tournaments and friendly matches.[1]

Partizan is the club with most league titles and cup wins in youth competition in Serbia.[1] The youth teams also participate in numerous tournaments around Europe and also organize an U17 international tournament with participation of some of the top European clubs.[1] Partizan also organizes football camps for children in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Australia[1][2] and United States.[2][3] Many of the best youth academy players move directly to the Partizan senior side, or to the affiliate club Teleoptik Zemun.[1]
