How are we different?

At Play Football Academy we combine the best of scientific training and engaging teaching methodologies, because learning should be fun.
More than the fundamentals
Most academy’s promote the idea of building great athletes through the implementation of an overpriced, over the top and inconvenient set-up. We’re passionate about giving young people more than just the fundamental tools to play football successfully and improve their skills; all at an affordable cost.
Skills on and off the field
We aim to provide valuable life skills and lessons through the play of the sport; allowing for these skills to be transferable on and off the pitch
