Is this course right for me?
Are you looking to progress and play football at the highest level? The Academy is recommended for players who are already playing for their school and/or an outside club. Trials will be held early in the new year to enable coaches to observe players in a training and game situation. The Academy programme is an additional four lessons to students' academic studies so a strong interest in wanting to develop as a player is vital. As an Academy player there will be expectations that include hard work, commitment and respect.
If you are looking to continue your football pathway, we will give you the opportunity to speak with one of our Academy partners who offer American Scholarships. There is also plenty of support and guidance on taking your next steps to university or full-time work where you can continue your football journey by joining an outside senior women’s club or university team.
