Pyongyang International Football School is situated on the picturesque Rungna Islet. The school, which was built cosily to blend in well with natural environment of the islet, consists of four school blocks in an area of over 10 000 square metres. It has a school building for accommodating over 200 students, playground, dormitory and cultural and welfare facilities.

It has produced many soccer player reserves since its inauguration in June 2013.

Most of its graduates are now active as seed players at the national premier league.

“The secret of success is the scientific instruction and training methods,” said principal Jang Sung Dok.

The school directs particular efforts to making students improve their own judgment and decision-making ability.

“If a coach keeps giving instructions to students during a game, they will be unable to acquire the ability to make correct judgment and decisions during matches by themselves. The coach cannot play the game in place of players,” said instructor Jong Song Man.

The school encourages students to try to make a bold person-to-person breakthrough without fearing failure.

It regularly tests the students’ skills once a quarter and includes or admits gifted ones. During the selection of players, it gives priority to their comprehensive indexes including resourcefulness, personal characters and grit, to say nothing of their height and strong constitution.

Efforts are being channelled into using the professional evaluation system in instruction and training and further perfecting the training and game evaluation system based on information means.

“The school gives lessons of football and other subjects according to the grades of students. Through this, students acquire many-sided knowledge, which constitutes the foundations for them to become promising soccer players,” said Jang Sung Dok.
