UK Football Schools have assisted many students in this position where they have finished their high school career but are unsure on what they would like to do next or maybe aren’t ready to delve into an undergraduate degree. The elite football options don’t just stop at 18, our specialist UK Football Schools team have been out to find elite football pathways in Europe that allow players to continue with their football development at the highest level and we believe we have found the perfect opportunity…
UK Football Schools recommend an elite private football academy based in Spain, the Spanish football academy run academies for players aged 16 to 23 and have young aspiring footballers attending from all over the globe, many of which have graduated high school and attend as a ‘gap year’ and giving football a full time run before committing to full time work or taking on a university degree. The Spanish football academy that UK Football Schools recommend have had a lot of success over the past few years with players going onto trial at professional clubs all over the world (just recently the football academy in Spain have had two players go onto trial at Getafe who are flying high in La Liga) and over 40 players have gone onto sign for clubs all over the world. These opportunities come from the reputation the academy has built, this season players at the elite European football academy have had the chance to showcase their talent against some of Spain’s biggest clubs with games against Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Grenada, Malaga and in the next two weeks they are playing arguably one of the world’s biggest teams.
Players at the private football academy in Spain play up to six days a week, work with UEFA licensed coaches (many have played and coached at the highest level in Europe). The sessions that the elite Spanish football academy comprise of Tactical & Technical work on the pitch, S&C, Analysis and classroom based work. Nutrition is a key part of football too and the Spanish football academy has its own restaurant which caters the ideal meals for the players to eat the same diet a pro footballer would. We believe the opportunity that the Spanish football academy offers makes it one of the best football academies in Europe. Players have the chance to develop under elite coaches, have exposure to professional and semi-professional clubs on a regular basis and give themselves a genuine opportunity to progress.
