Altrincham FC Football and Education Academy


Altrincham Football club are proud to announce the launch of our Football and Education Academy, in partnership with Interactive Sports. 

The Academy will launch in September 2020 and marks an important step in achieving our five-year plan.   

Our intention is for the Academy to develop high quality young players and to develop a player pathway to the first team and beyond.  This is a significant investment for the football club over the long term, but with benefits that would far outweigh this cost once an Academy player breaks through into the first team. 

Our brand-new Academy will offer students the opportunity to participate in an elite football programme, whilst still in full-time study, working towards formal qualifications which would subsequently allow a progression to university.  The Altrincham FC Academy team will play weekly, with a goal of achieving membership of the National League Football Academy in the short term.

Benefits of the programme for the student:

  • Pathway to professional/ Semi-professional football
  • Access to high quality coaching
  • Official match and training kit
  • An Individual Player Development Plan
  • Experienced, highly qualified and professional staff – both football and education

All players must have been born between 1/9/2002 and 31/08/04. Our first trial day will be on the 17th February at Altrincham Football Club starting at 10am.

If you would like to attend, please contact our Academy team on [email protected]
