After more than 15 players were signed to professional football academies in the past year, The FootieBugs Academy is now looking for more talented youngsters in the West Midlands to help get them “One Step Closer to Professional”.
The Academy is open to children from U6-U14 age groups and focuses on developing and nurturing their ability, before feeding them into professional football club’s academies.
Through our expert professional coaching, detailed coach reports, online player profiles and links with professional clubs across the country, the FootieBugs Academy is the best place for children to be selected to join professional clubs!
Academy training sessions will introduce children to more advanced training sessions than regular FootieBugs classes, whilst also keeping an element of fun and enjoyment for children and developing their confidence levels. Sessions are planned around different skill sets and principles of the game, to develop children’s technical and tactical knowledge. Players are also set specific homework tasks by our coaches, which helps to improve a possibly weaker area to their game and turn this into a strength.
Professional club’s scouts regularly attend our training sessions, looking for the next superstar talent to sign up for their clubs. The FootieBugs Academy also has an exclusive partnership with EFL Championship side Birmingham City. This means that the FootieBugs Academy are the ONLY local club feeding directly into Birmingham’s professional academy.
The FootieBugs Academy also hold matches against other local teams or academies, allowing children to put skills and tactics worked on in training sessions into a controlled game environment, as well as working as part of a team.
Academy training sessions are held at West Warwickshire Sports Club on Thursday and Friday evenings. We offer all children a FREE trial to the Academy – to book your child’s trial, please either call 0121 777 7792 or click here.
