About Aspire Academy

Since 2020, along with the other business units in the Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF), we have been part of the “A Game Strategy to Advance, Adapt, Accomplish”.

The AZF’s aim is to build a holistic and fully integrated strategy that encompasses each of its business units adopting a unified framework structure but recognising the differentiating characteristics of each SBU.

When we opened our doors in 2004 we set ourselves the “ambitious target to be, by 2020, recognized as the world’s leading sports academy in the development of youth athletes.”

We said we would measure ourselves on international sporting success by our graduates. Aspire Academy is proud that 18 graduate-athletes were included in the Qatar national team squad preparing for the FIFA 2022 World Cup.

In athletics our graduates have won medals at the Olympics (both youth and senior), World Championships (both under-20 and senior) and the Asian Games.

Our graduates have also achieved the highest ever global rankings for Qatar in squash and competed on a global level in both table tennis and fencing.

We are also proud that the academy has also produced success stories away from the sporting arena with graduates going on to be doctors, dentists and engineers among other things.
