Having started this past September the new Talent ID Centre encompasses elite players from U7 – U12 and up to U14 for goalkeepers. It is aimed at players who want additional coaching or who are at the standard to be considered for Academy football. This new technical session will be part of the Academy pathway and coached by Academy staff following the Academy syllabus.
Players will continue to play for their local club but come to Stevenage FC Academy once a week on a Wednesday for coaching and assessment. As participants improve they will move up the Elite Player Pathway which could lead all the way to the Academy squads.
The first block for the 2017/18 Talent ID season has now begun, with block 1 running from 30th August - 20th December.
We hold 2 week trials for the Talent ID programme, with signups for the 2017/18 season now being accepted. Please see the form attached below, which will need to be submitted with a payment of £12 for outfield players or £15 for goalkeepers. Please be aware there are limited spaces in each group so a filled out trial form does not guarantee acceptance. Trials can take place at any point during the season, subject to availability.
Please be aware that if you get accepted onto the programme, the remaining cost of the block will be £6 (£7.50 for goalkeepers) per session up until the completion date of the block. Aforementioned post-acceptance payment must come in one instalment.
