K Sports Cobdown is excited to be launching our very own full-time football academy for 16-19 year old boys and girls from September 2018.
Our Academy will be based at our award winning 28 acre, multi-sport facility in the heart of the county of Kent.
K Sports U19 players will have the opportunity to enjoy training on grass pitches or on the latest FIFA Pro rated 3G surface.
Players will also have professional coaching delivered by industry experienced UEFA A/B Licenced coaches delivered from a structured Academy Performance Plan, be taught by Ofsted outstanding lecturers and gain physical conditioning by accessing the onsite K Sports Fitness Technogym.
In its inaugural year we are delighted to offer a professional pre-season programme commencing in August. The pre-season programme will be inclusive of training sessions and a professional games programme, where games will be held at our award-winning facility.
The squad will have opportunities to play against professional clubs with confirmed fixtures against:
– Millwall Community Trust Academy
– Charlton Athletic Academy
– Crystal Palace Foundation Academy
– Kent FA representative
Following our pre-season programme, we are delighted to announce that the squad will participate in the 2018/19 Bostick Youth League East Division.
This provides further opportunity for players to participate in a mid-week floodlit youth league to continue to aspire to become the best player possible. This enables all players to continue their long-term development by either accessing our first team, other non-league teams, professional teams or scholarships to American universities.
We are also proud to offer routes into further education based around Apprenticeships, Traineeships using our close partnerships with colleges. Additionally, routes into higher education with partner universities in England and America are also offered if students have aspirations of continuing their academic studies.
We truly believe in #CreatingOpportunity and developing a long-lasting legacy which enables young people to continue high quality football participation and motivate and inspire others.
