The Aldershot Town Academy seeks applications for its 2018-19 intake, with students aged 16-18 invited to attend a trial on Tuesday 3 April.
Held at Aldershot Garrison’s 3G pitch on Queen’s Avenue, adjacent to the Military Stadium and Rugby Stadium, the trial from 10am-12pm will be led by the Club’s new Academy Manager, Ross McNeilly.
Applications can be submitted either by completing this document, calling Head of Youth Medical, Katie Dorsett on 07545 348945, or emailing AcademyManager@theshots.co.uk. Places are limited, and applicants accepted on a first come, first served basis, so apply now to avoid disappointment.
With the aim of creating a direct pathway into the Aldershot Town first-team, the Academy competes in the Bostik Youth League, Conference Youth Alliance and FA Youth Cup. In 2017-18, four Academy graduates have been promoted to the first-team squad, including two who have made their National League debuts.
In association with Virtual Learning UK (VLUK), the Aldershot Town Academy also provides a unique learning experience for its players, by offering a full-time, two-year BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport (Level 3) and, from September 2018, a Higher National Diploma in Sport – click here for full details of the education opportunities offered by the Shots Academy.
