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 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.


Talent Identification Programme

Starting in September the new Talent ID Centre will be starting for Elite players from U7 – U12 and up to U14 for goalkeepers. 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 2 week trials for the Talent ID programme starting from the 4th January. If you would like to sign up to this trial then please complete the form below and bring it back to us with a £12 payment or £15 for goalkeepers. Please be aware there are limited spaces in each group so please book quick to avoid disappointment. 

* Please be aware that if you get accepted onto the programme the remaining cost of the block will be £6/£7.50 for goalkeepers per week up until the 29th March.

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 Monday between 8pm - 9pm. Fall back in love with the game.
