Education is the main priority and the Academy aims to create pathways into further education, employment and potentially an opportunity to study and play NCAA college football in the United States.
This unique opportunity is open to students aged 16-19. Entry into the Academy is based upon a series of physical tryouts, along with a one-to-one interview and educational assessment. Successful students will be offered provisional places, dependent on meeting academic requirements.
