Stevenage Football Academy is a purpose built training facility for all ages and all areas of the community. Anybody of any ability who wishes to play football will be able to find an activity suitable for them.
The state of the art facility has three 6-a-side pitches 40m x 23m and four 5-a-side pitches 30m x 20m all laid with the latest 3G rubber crumb surface which looks and plays like real grass and is used by a number of top clubs in England and Abroad, including Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Leeds United and Newcastle United for their training pitches.
Players can either attend one of our many courses or they can get together with some friends or workmates and hire a pitch for themselves. We also run organised leagues for Adults so there really is something for everyone.
Please note that screw in studs and metal blades are not allowed on the pitches.
Starting in September the new Talent ID Centre will be starting for Elite players from U7 – U14. It is aimed at players who want additional coaching or who are at the standard to be considered for Academy football. This new technical session will be part of the Academy pathway and coached by Academy staff following the Academy Syllabus.
Players will continue to play for their local club but come to us once a week on a Wednesday for coaching and assessment. As participants improve they will move up the Elite player pathway which could be all the way to the Academy squads.
We will be holding a 2 week trial for the Talent ID programme on Wednesday 7th + 14th September.

Due to popular demand Stevenage FC are extending their very popular Junior Kickers sessions that run on a Saturday morning to include children from 16 months to 36 months old. The new sessions will take place indoors at Shephalbury Sports Academy, Rookies Nursery, Broadhall Way, Stevenage, Herts SG2 8RH on a Saturday morning from 9.15am-10.00am for 16 - 24 months and 10.15am-11.00am for 2-3 year olds.
The sessions are structured so that the children can learn in a fun, pressure free environment that is educational as well as imaginative to help develop skills such as learning colours and numbers, balance and co-ordination plus improve cognitive and social skills. Both age groups, but especially the Baby Kickers will involve parent participation, so mums and dads remember your trainers.
Baby Kickers next course will be starting on Saturday 10th September 2016 from 9.15am - 10.00am and 10.15am - 11.00am. It will cost £36 for 6 weeks and it will also cost an additional £20 to purchase the kit (first time applicants only). To book a place please download a form (above) and return it to us with a cheque made payable to SFA.
Our next Free Baby Kickers Taster Session is on 29th October from 10.15 - 11.00am. For more information or to book your son/daughter on, please either email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01438 368068.
Do you want to continue to play the beautiful game? Do you think the mind still works but the body says no? Well now you can take part in a brand new session every week at Shephalbury Sports Academy aimed at the over 50's called Walking Football. Research says there is no reason why you should not play football into your fifties and sixites so there are no excuses.
The game is played in a similiar way to normal football, dribbling, passing and scoring remain important elements of the walking version of football although you'll still get a good workout by having to move from one end of the pitch to the other, you won't exert yourself to the same extent as standard football nor will you run such a great risk of spraining a limb or bumping into other players. It is open to both male and female participants with the emphasis on enjoyment, fun and meeting new people.
So come along to Shephalbury Sports Academy every Wednesday between 10am - 11am and Monday between 8pm - 9pm. Fall back in love with the game.
Small sided football is a great way to get some exercise and lose those extra pounds you may have gained over the Christmas period.
We run 6 a-side leagues on Monday and Thursday evenings. And on Sunday evenings we run a 5 a-side league, with new leagues starting all the time there has never been a better time to get involved.
To contact us about any of the above activites or for anything else that we offer both children and adults, please call us on 01438 368068 to speak to a member of the Reception team.
