New Forest Football Academy
The Academy coaching team aim to provide the perfect training environment for young aspiring footballers, striving to achieve their footballing potential. Our Academy training centres are designed to run in partnership with your child’s current weekend grassroots youth football club commitments, to maximise player development.
The Coaching team work to our progressive and periodised coaching methodology, in line with the AFC Bournemouth Academy syllabus and the FA’s 4 corner long-term development plan for youth footballers.
We are very proud to be the official Academy partner to AFC Bournemouth. Over the past four years, more than 40 of our players have progressed into AFC Bournemouth set up and other professional Academies. When we feel that our Academy players are ready for their next steps, we liaise with the AFC Bournemouth Head of player recruitment regarding trials.
Our Academy training centres run in partnership with your child’s current weekend grassroots youth football club commitments, to maximise their footballing development. Academy fixtures also take place during the final training sessions of each half-term block of training and we schedule Academy festivals during the School holiday periods.
Our High Performance Centres are invitational sessions for players that are excelling within our Academy programme. Our HP groups regularly represent us in fixtures and festivals against our partner Academy, Premier League AFC Bournemouth, as well as their Shadow squads, allowing the players to showcase their talents at the highest level and play in front of Premier League Scouts.
