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.
We will be holding trials for Stevenage FC popular Development Centre on Monday 8th December for entry starting in January. If successful you will attend a 1 hour technical training session on a Tuesday evening whilst still playing for your local club. The Development Centre is the entry level for any players wishing to progress to the full Academy and we will only be trialing the following age groups.
U9 – 5pm
U12 and U13 – 5.30pm
U14 – 6pm
U15 and U16 6.30pm
Aimed at players that are new to the position or have not had any technical training on the position, Stevenage FC Academy will be running a 10 week Safe Hands Course starting on 7th October at a cost of £60.
Application forms can be downloaded by clicking here and must be returned to Shephalbury Sports Academy, Broadhall Way, Stevenage, Herts, SG2 8RH along with a payment of £60. Places will be limited on this course to just 12 children per session.
Due to popular demand Stevenage FC are extending their very popular Junior Kickers sessions that run on a Saturday morning to include children from 18 months old. The new sessions will run in the Broadhall Suite on a Sunday morning from 10am. The Boro Baby Kickers will start from 10.00 - 10.45am for child aged 18 - 24 months and the Boro Toddler Kickers for the 2 - 3 years old will run from 11.00 - 11.45am. There will also be a midweek session on a Wednesday from 9.15 - 10.00am for the Boro Babies.
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 Boro Babies will involve parent participation, so mums and dads remember your trainers.

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.
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 5 and 6 a-side leagues on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings and with new leagues starting all the time there has never been a better time to get involved.
