Development Academy

Our development sessions offers an introduction in to our technical coaching programme. The aim of these sessions are to install confidence and creativity to all boys and girls regardless of their ability even if they already play for a Sunday team by attending these sessions it will not only benefit the child but also their Sunday team. If your child’s progression outgrows the Development Sessions then they may be asked to attend the Elite Sessions at no extra cost.

You can book your first session which will be free just so your child can get a taster of whats on offer. Once you have made the choice to attend your second session you will then need to become a full academy member.

Elite Academy

SFA Elite sessions are invitation only. The invites could be directly as a progression from the Development Sessions or by invite directly from Ian Gilmour.

Ian Gilmour will take full control of these Elite Sessions and he wil provide very high level training sessions each week. These sessions will push each child to pursue their ultimate goal of becoming the best player they can be. If Ian finds a player that he feels is a stand out player he will offer pro club scouts to some and take a look at the child. Our academy offers true player progression.

1-2-1 Sessions

If you wish to have dedicated 1-2-1 coaching separate from the academy training, we also provide this option for you.

Ian Gilmour will personally provide a training session suited to the individual. For booking your personal training session please contact Ian Gilmour on 07894 512269 or the academy direct for times and costs. (Please note you must be an academy member to be able to book your 1-2-1)

Pro-Scout Events

The academy will run a scouting day for showcasing players individual ability in front of pro-club scouts. This is usually once a year in the summer. On the back of this Ian Gilmour has been able to give many youth players that opportunity and these players are now playing for Premier League clubs.
