The New Saints FC are delighted to invite aspiring footballers to join our football family.
Trials for the 2020/21 season are coming up shortly and we want to see you there!
Our leading Academy is one of the most respected in Wales and offers players the chance to develop under our extensive individualised programme, as well as the experience and challenge to play against some of the biggest teams in world football.
Over the past 12 months, our players have had the opportunity to play against some of the best teams domestically and abroad, including Arsenal, Everton, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Stoke City and Wolves to name a few.
We also have a fantastic tournament programme where we have faced teams like FC Barcelona, Galatasary, Lille, Chelsea, Valencia and Athletic Bilbao in recent years. We have exciting additions to our tournament programme upcoming.
We pride ourselves on our player-centred approach, where players are at the forefront of everything we do. We provide three weekly contacts, where we cover the four corners of development, inline with the age of the player.
Training is tailored to meet the demands of the individual and we provide six week reviews on progress, with updates and new goal and target setting.
We are adding an individualised session to our curriculum next season where we will be working in small groups on Individual Development Plans (IDPs) and position specific work.
Training will be delivered by a highly qualified coaching team, with a number of full-time UEFA A Licence coaches working closely with players to assist their development. We also have good involvement from our first team players, providing further insight in what it takes to be a Pro.
We are delighted to be adding specialist strength and conditioning coaches to our team who will be working on key motor, strength, flexibility and movement skills, alongside a recovery programme.
We will also be adding a homework section on the back of our successful lockdown programme, which will see players receive tasks to complete in their own time, to maximise player learning opportunities.
In the past 12 months, we have had multiple Academy players involved with our first team, with a number also being offered professional contracts, following on from our successful scholarship programme.
We had a record number of scholarships offered from our highly talented under-16s team last season.
As well as this, we had a player sign for a CAT1 Academy, a number of players join professional football clubs in England and players trialling at teams like Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton amongst others.
We feel that we offer the perfect player learning environment where we focus on the individual player and how we can challenge and develop them.
We are excited to offer you the opportunity to join our growing and aspiring Academy.
