Athletico Sports Club

A club with a mission

The Athletico project started in 2006, with a group of parents coming together to give the best to their kids. It is with this vision that the club grew, to become today the leading academy in the region, with 8 branches across Lebanon. With a historic partnership with prestigious Olympique Lyonnais, a French Technical Director, a coaches' continuous training and development program, and a complete yearly program for every age group.

We accept kids born between 2001 and 2014. Older players can join our championship teams, younger children however are not encouraged to join as research shows that small children taking part in organized football activities too soon are more likely to drop out of the sport earlier. Some different activities are tailored for newborns to 5 year old children to develop their basic skills; at Athletico, we focus on the skills that are needed to develop starting age 5. 
We do not allow 1 day a week training because the kid will very quickly find himself not progressing as much as his or her teammates and be demotivated. We also are strong advocates of physical activity for a healthy growth, and believe that players in school are able to make time for more than 2 hours of physical activities per week. This will help them be more organized in school, more healthy physically, and capable of achieving more outside the court. 
Sure! At any Athletico branch, a player can come and try two sessions for free before registering. We want to make sure they are as happy as us to be on our team!
The Athletico outfit is mandatory on the field. It is a symbol of our team spirit! In winter, player with a windbreaker is highly encourages.

Ask in any sports shop for shoes with flat soles or small spikes made for artificial grass.
Athletico's training system was built in a way to lead talented players to achieve their dreams.

Our players are supervised by our French Technical Director, Stephane D'Urbano.

The training system is exactly similar to the one players receive at Olympique Lyonnais, the third youth training center in the world!

Teams have continuous competitions and matches arranged yearlong and have the opportunity to travel to participate in International Competitions.

Our top 10 players are also selected yearly to travel to Olympique Lyonnais and have a unique opportunity to train in their official teams.

If you are talented, you have come to the right place!
