  • 01 Will attending The Academy affect my grassroots team?
  • We don’t want to poach or take players away from their Junior Football teams, our aim is to provide academy level coaching to kids of all abilities that will only enhance their performances for their junior clubs at weekends.
  • 02 Is this a football club?
  • No we aren’t a club, just extra coaching for players.
  • 03 Do you only work with high level players?
  • Our sessions are open to all players of all abilities.
  • 04 Do you have to attend all three sessions during the week?
  • No you are able to pick just one or if you like multiple sessions per week, however the session you select will be the session you attend each week for that month. So you can’t select one session per week but do different sessions each week.
  • 05 Will my child be scouted for professional teams?
  • Although this isn’t our main aim and we work with players of all abilities, we have had scouts attend our sessions previously which has led to players going to other pro academies.
