Three tiered system so that we can deliver the best form of coaching to enhance the players needs and so that players are put into a competitive environment surrounded by players of similar abilities to further develop their game.

We don’t play weekend league fixtures, we are a bridge between grass roots football and professional academies, helping players make the jump into professional organisations. Friendly fixtures are organised throughout the year against professional, semi-professional country, district and other similar academies. We create a platform for our players to shine against carefully selected opposition.

We have several current professionals and International players who have come through our academy system and are now proving themselves at the senior level.

A professional contract, although what every player dreams of, is not the only outcome we plan for. We also assist players with ventures down different avenues:

  • University (both here in the U.K and in the USA)
  • Coaching
  • Semi-professional contracts

Several SEFA scholars have gone on to further their education at Universities in the U.K & USA

We also have some former SEFA scholars working with us as part of our SEFA staff, working with us and playing semi-professional football.

Our elite tier is our highest level within the SEFA academy. These sessions are geared to those players that demonstrate exceptional skill, performance and attitude and are hungry to become an academy player at a professional club. With this in mind, players can expect to train within an environment that is as close to that of a professional academy as possible. Players will be expected to consistently show exceptional technical quality, first class decision making skills, and an ability to take on board and apply very detailed technical and tactical information. Elite players will typically have played for a professional club or been on trial at one, or play at a county or district level.
