We?re delighted to announce that we will be putting together a games program for players that attend our Brooksby & LFE Development Centres.
Our Rapid Growth
In just 12 months the Star Academy has grown to almost 180 players in total and we estimate that will rise to around 250 players during the next 8 months.
We now have 12 coaches on our books with additional coaches waiting for the opportunity to get involved in this project.
2019/20 Season Games Program Overview
Because of the number of players we have started to form plans for a games program that will include the following
- Trips to play Pro Academies for our most talented players
- Matches against other Academies and Grassroots Teams
- 3 v 3 Round Robins
- Girls only matches
- Internal practice matches.
The season may only be a few weeks old, but already our under 7?s have played Glenfield United on a Monday night at Brooksby.
Our under 9?s played in a 3v3 Round Robin against AFC Andrews & they have another one planned against AP Boys on Tuesday 24th September.
Wednesday 18th September we took an under 8 team into play Walsall Academy
This was a fantastic experience for the boys to play at a professional venue and big thanks to the parents that supported the fixture.
Next Wednesday (25th September) our under 9s travel to Mansfield Town?s brand new training facilities to play one of their Academy teams.
We have an external girl?s fixture sorted for October and next week we will reveal the internal games program to parents.
The Academy is for all abilities from players that just want to try football for the first time, right through to real talented players that are pushing for places in professional academies.
We?re committed to trying and place all players training at our development centres into grassroots teams.
This will be either contacting the managers of existing teams with our grassroots partners or forming completely new teams.
We run two development centres for 7-11 year old boys and girls and we offer a free taster session and we consider any boy or girl regardless of ability.
- Brooksby College, Brooksby ? Mondays 6:00pm ? 7:00pm
- Leicester Forest Rugby Club ? Tuesdays 5:50pm ? 6:50pm
We offer a FREE taster session at both of our Centres
