Weekly Football Training for Boys and Girls  6 to 12 years old.

A Long-Term Partnership to benefit children in Thailand

The SEAL Cubs Football Academy offers expert, fun instruction and a wide range of programme’s for all ages of players. 

Our SEAL CUBS football academy provides young players – boys and girls – with the opportunity to train and compete at a club level with the best coaches and training programs.  The most talented children, who might miss out because of cost or lack of access can realise their full potential and progress through our academy system to become a LION or LIONESS.

The football programme emphasises individual skill development and teamwork. Children ages 5-18 learn through expert instruction from fully qualified coaches, where they will have the opportunity to play all year round not just during school terms. Our Lion Cubs classes for 5-7 year old’s focus on the fundamentals of sport, while our developmental youth classes for 8-14-year old’s concentrate on more advanced skills development, and tactical awareness.

Working with our partners, the West Ham United Foundation, our Elite Player Pathway will provide an opportunity for young players to work with highly qualified staff to progress their game and provide educational and professional pathways.

Following an SEAL FC Academy Talent ID Trial, players are signposted and invited to join sessions that are the correct level for them. Our Talent ID Trials are open for 5 to 16 year olds.

All of our sessions are based on the English FA’s 4-corner model with the session including Technical, Physical, Psychological and Social aspects.
