Pôle Espoirs Fédéral de Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, commonly referred to as PEF Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, is the regional association football centre and is one of the nine élite academies of France. Located in Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, Loire-Atlantique, only the best players from the Pays de la Loire région train there. There are eight other élite youth academies in Metropolitan France (Castelmaurou, Châteauroux, Clairefontaine, Liévin, Dijon, Marseille, Vichy and Reims) covering the whole territory.

  • Linking movements efficiently and wisely
  • Using the weaker foot
  • Weaknesses in the player’s game

  • Physical tests (beep test)
  • Technical skills
  • Skill training (juggling the ball, running with the ball, dribbling, kicking, passing and ball control)
