Welcome to Stevenage FC Football Academy

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 course or they can get together with some friends or workmates and hire a pitch for themselves. We also run organised leagues for Adults and Juniors so there really is something for everyone.

Please note that screw in studs and metal blades are not allowed on the pitches.

Both age groups, but especially the Boro Babies will involve parent participation, so mums and dads remember your trainers.

Walking Football

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 fall back in love with the game.
