Pre- Academy (U7-U8)

Our Pre-Academy (U7-U8) is a direct pathway into the U9-U16s academy programme linked in with the ATFC game model and philosophy to develop individual players. Our U7-U8 teams combine, train once a week and have a weekly games programme every Sunday playing in the West Surrey Youth League (SYL).

The sessions are delivered by our FA licensed academy coaches and players have the opportunity to extend their development by training at our Development Centre based around Hampshire and Surrey such as futsal and other generic development centre training sessions.

The process is progressing from the Pre-Academy and into the Academy U9s-U16s. We welcome new players into the Pre-Academy programme, so if you want to start your academy journey please visit the Academy Talent ID Days page to register for upcoming trial dates.
