Bridging The Gap

Our Academy identifies talented football players at school level in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Our Players are coached by professional Coaches who have years of experience in the Premier Soccer League (PSL). We strive to provide our Players with the opportunity to be exposed to our network of clubs in the PSL and abroad.

The Academy also offers football training to amateur players who have either little to no football experience. We have established Development Centres all over Johannesburg and Cape Town that operate throughout the year.

Academy Staff

Our Academy consists of the Academy Manager, Academy Secretary, Head of Football, Goalkeeper Coach, Technical Coaches, and a Head of Sports Science. Our team of professional coaches and staff members play an important role in the success of the Academy.

Academy Registration & Induction

 Players between the ages of 7 - 18 years may be afforded the opportunity to register with the Academy. Only Players who are willing to commit 100% to the Academy will be granted this opportunity. 

Academy registration will only take place once the parent has been informed of the Player's successful trial period with us. We'll tell you about the provision of coaching, education and support as well as what you can expect following registration. 

Induction is an important chance for a parent to get to know key people at the Academy, and for them to get to know the parent. A parent should make the most of the opportunity to ask questions and to note names and contact details.
