Elite Football Academy combines residential football training in an all inclusive environment, and a wide range of education and study options from a 6 week trial to a 2 year diploma. Our range of programmes is available to young players from all over the world aged between 14 and 23 years of age. We offer the opportunity to come to the UK and play in front of scouts & coaches from professional football clubs, be trained by professional footballers and highly qualified UEFA Coaches. Many of our staff have also had experience scouting for professional teams, and our network of contacts is vast and varied.
The Elite Football Academy Programme encompasses a comprehensive weekly football timetable and education whilst at the same time providing realistic and genuine opportunities to progress into professional football clubs, through our contact network built up over many years of success.
All players will stay in our own beautiful and spacious Academy House. No Hotels and Hostels. All meals and drinks are provided for the duration of your stay, as is transport to and from your arrival airport (except 1 wk trials) as well as to training and matches. We also educate the players in tactics, formations and decision making, as well as match and performance analysis.
We understand that choosing the right Academy can be a tough decision! Unlike other Academies we do not make false promises. Rest assured that Elite Football Academy has a strong network of contacts, experienced UEFA qualified coaches and the infrastructure to ensure that by signing up for our programme, you can be confident that you are on the right path to becoming a professional footballer. If you have the talent, you will be noticed. However its up to you to shine when given the opportunity.
During every academy programme, Elite Football Academy arrange a series of friendlies and showcase matches to enable each player to put into practise the things he has learned, and the chance to impress scouts and coaches alike.
Individual football trials will be organised on a one to one basis and will depend on several factors which will be decided by academy staff, once we identify players with true potential. Typically players start with a 6 week trial period, and should they impress during this period, the academy staff will discuss options to progress through to the 2nd phase of the academy programmes which may include BTEC studies should players meet the entry requirements, or an extended football programme. However, many players already have a good idea of what programme they want and we can offer anything from a 1 week taster to a 2 year course including diploma in Sport. Whatever your requirements we do our best to provide it for you.
Important Note: Whilst Elite Football Academy makes every effort to get players noticed it is important you understand that we are NOT selling professional contracts or trials, you are being given the opportunity to train and develop like a professional footballer, it is then up to you to shine and be chosen to progress, or stand out in the matches. The reality is that it is tough to become a professional athlete. However, Elite Football Academy have been able to offer successful exit routes to many players since 2011 and we hope to offer the same to you.
