Wilmslow Football Academy
Since its launch in 2001, Wilmslow Football Academy (WFA) has grown into one of the most popular coaching organisations in the area with it's main centre at Ashdene Primary School, Thoresway Road, Wilmslow held every Saturday morning from 10am until 12 noon.
For more information on Wilmslow Football Academy visit www.academyfootball.co.uk.
All the coaching staff at WFA are CRB checked and are qualified to FA or UEFA standard.
Children as young as four attend the Academy and quickly learn the basics of the game through specialised coaching and of course copying what the older boys and girls do. From ages four through to eleven the children train in groups of similar ability honing their skills and enjoying the fun training routines and matches.
WFA is also the main source of players for Wilmslow Town's Under 9's squads and U10's squads. During the Summer of 2007 WFA formed a partnership with Wilmslow Town Football Club (then Wilmslow Albion FC). The objective of both organisations is simple. Once the youngsters at the Academy are ready and able, they can play for Wilmslow Town in the Timperley & District Football League.
The plan is that within 7 years, every player in the junior ranks at Wilmslow Town will be a graduate of Wilmslow Football Academy.
Each year WFA hold trials for the club and helps them select the best players to form the new Under 9's teams. This has proved very successful so far with over twenty boys progressing from the Academy last year! Prior to the 2007/2008 season, WFA provided Wilmslow Sports with all their junior players too, some 60 or so in total. In 2005/2006, WFA 'graduates' represented Wilmslow Sports' Pumas Under 9's and won the Timperley & District League title, winning a record 20 out of 20 games along the way. The following season they went on to win the Under 10's first division losing only one game out of twenty!
You will see the WFA logo emblazoned across the shirts of all the Wilmslow Town junior teams in recognition of our proud support of the area's most exciting new club!
Fun, Football and Friendship are the main criteria at WFA. A combination that obviously works.
To join the Wilmslow Football Academy just turn up on a Saturday morning with your son or daughter for two hours' top class coaching. Bring along a non-fizzy drink, light snack, suitable attire for outdoor football including shin pads (which are compulsory).
