We are delighted to announce our official partnership with Pro:Direct Academy – who will be providing the next-step for our superstars who are turning 7/8 years old.
Pro:Direct Academy will allow for a natural progression for our players, following a similar philosophy to ours. Pro:Direct Academy is the official youth football provider for global sports retailer Pro:Direct and gives opportunities to boys & girls, helping to develop their skills and improve their physical, tactical and technical abilities.
Pro:Direct Academy also has links with over 40 professional clubs across the UK. When they are ready, all players have the chance to showcase their talent to these clubs.
Our superstars will remain with us until they are ready. When a conversation happens between Coach and Parent & both are comfortable with the step up, we will organise details of next-steps. Our coaches will attend all Pro:Direct Academy sessions to begin with, to ensure a comfortable transition and to make sure all parties are happy.
Message from Head of Academy
We are so excited to announce this partnership - one that will give our superstars the opportunities that they deserve, in a family environment that is similar to our own.
The big factor in us getting this over the line was that we get to remain in our little superstars' lives post 7 years of age. We invest a lot of energy and time into our players and have a bond with all of them. With this partnership, we are able to monitor their progress by regular phone-calls and visits to their sessions.
With Pro:Direct Academy, we know that they are in great hands - it is a partnership that will work both ways, so we will always have an input into their development and their sessions.
For those that are currently 5 - 7 years of age, I will be visiting all the sessions over the next couple of weeks to answer questions - and will be introducing you to our main contact at Pro:Direct Academy. As always, if you have any questions, please give me a call on the number below.
