JK Academy Trials 19/20


Want to be part of the JK Academy?

We are hosting the final JK Academy Trials for this season's squads on Monday 6th January - at The Edge Sports Centre.

- 5:00 - 6:30pm for New Year 2, 3, 4 & 5 children

- 6:30 - 8:00pm for New Year 6, 7 & 8 children 

The JK Academy trains on a Monday evening, and has teams from U7 - U13 (as above). Training sessions and 'Home Matches' take place at The Edge Sports Centre in Haslemere (Astro Turf).

We also have the JK Development Centre, who train on a Friday evening - at Shottermill Junior School (Astro Turf & Hall).


What can you expect at the Academy Trial?

For the first part of the Trial, players will be separated into age specific groups, and participate in a warm up and a skills session - for the coaches to see them in a training environment.

Each player will then be put into a team, and will play matches against the other teams from the same age group. The matches will be observed by the JK Academy Coaches, who will be assessing each player from what they see throughout the trial. The results of the matches aren't important - the players will be assessed on both their individual and teamwork ability, etc.


What happens if you are successful?

If you are successful following the Academy Trial, then you will be selected to join EITHER the JK Academy (Monday) or the JK Development Centre (Friday) for your child's age group. 

The JK Academy teams train on a Monday evening at The Edge Sports Centre from 5:00 - 6:30 (U7 - U10) or from 6:30 - 8:00 (U11 - U13), using both of the Astro Turfs.

The JK Development Centre teams train on a Friday evening at Shottermill Junior School from 5:00 - 6:00 (U7 & U8), 6:00 - 7:00 (U9 & U10) & 7:00 - 8:00 (U11 & U12) on the Astro Turf.

Each team will train with their respective age group once a week in the above slot, and will also play against other Academies on a regular basis (including 'Showcase Matches' against some Professional Academy set ups) - as well as various Summer Tournaments and other events.

We are looking forward to seeing alot of players attending these Academy Trials, to make for some really competitive matches!
