Urban Soccer Academy

In recent years we have seen a trend in professional footballers lending their names to Football Academies. In many cases the individuals concerned have little or no direct involvement in the day to day running of sessions or passing on their skills and experience, instead they rely on qualified staff to deliver the coaching on their behalf.

We are aware that footballers are role models for young people and may idolise both the players and the teams they play for. With the knowledge that many children look up to and aspire to become a professional footballer the Foundation has created a new initiative/programme which seeks to deliver first class football coaching delivered by these very role models.

The Community Sports Foundations Urban Football Academy programme is now a core part of our main delivery strategy, especially in areas where the problems appear to be challenging. The programme uses former professional football players all of whom have played at the highest level and hold the UEFA A and B License in football coaching. The kudos the participants experience as a result of being coached by a former pro is unquestionable and benefits from the coach's ability to engage with the participants.

To view a small selection of the coaches regularly involved in delivering this programme please visit the 'Our Coaches' section of this website.

The Academy programme is traditionally run in weekly sessions although it can also be arranged to take place as regular evening session. The Foundation regret that the Urban Football Academy will only be considered as a delivery mechanism for applications made to the Foundations main grants programme.

The Foundation will be running a series of Urban Football Academies across our target areas throughout the year. Please continue to visit our website for regular announcements and details of how you can enrol on theses events.
