Oxford Athletic Academy
Opportunities available - please read below and download the flyers at the bottom of the page
The academy is a development centre focused on bridging the gap between pro academies and grassroots football by providing weekly sessions delivered by highly qualified and experienced coaches, all overseen by a technical director who has recently come out of a Premier League academy. The provision also has a match programme that will let our players have fixtures against other development centres and academies to compete at a higher level, this has led to players moving on from our programme to join academies we have played against. We offer provisions for both boys and girls with the girls sessions being delivered by a female coach which we feel is important in providing a role model for the players. It is important to mention players wouldn’t have to leave their current grassroots team as we feel it is important for their enjoyment and development that they play for both!
Whilst the academy is aimed at experienced players, we also have an additional provision for newer footballers to give them a platform to develop and grow in confidence, this is our skills centre which offers weekly sessions that focuses on technical development to build more skilful and confident footballers. The skills centre acts as the feeder to the academy to help newer players to develop and then when ready push themselves in the academy.
