Academy Development Squads

Our Academy Development Squads is for the Pre Academy/Foundation Phase age groups of U7-U12 and is invite only. The academy development squad is for elite players and forms our second tier of players, directly below the academy.

The ADS have been designed to increase the opportunities for players to maximise their individual development.

Players at these Centre’s will benefit from expert coaching and increased contact time with our Academy Coaches. The players will be trained once a week and any players who progress and improve at a fast speed will be invited to attend a trial at FITC Academy, where they will be playing on the professional circuit against 17 different professional clubs.

Players will be continually assessed during their time at the Centre by all Academy coaches and scouts and we will have a ‘retain or release’ for all players 4 times a year. The reason we do this is to keep the standard as high as possible and highlight the areas in which the players are both excelling and need to improve.

The Academy Development Squads will play against the Academy Team regularly to see how they fare against the Academy players. Those who excel in the matches will again be invited into the Academy for a trial. The Academy Development Squad players may also be selected for Academy matches against the professional clubs.
