Football Academy

The football academy is a professionally run centre of excellence for football in the Carmarthenshire area. 

The students of the academy will experience a planned training week of conditioning and skill development taken by -A-licence UEFA and FAW registered coaches.

Students benefit from the excellent on-site facilities the college has for football including a fitness suite, gymnasium and a floodlight 3G surface for all year round training.

The academy competes in the Association of Colleges (AOC) leagues and cups as well as the Welsh Colleges Football Association and Welsh Schools Football Association cups.

We recognise the importance of ensuring young football players have a career path, which they follow alongside their football aspirations.

This is crucial to the aims of the academy; we provide everything a young player requires to reach his playing potential while ensuring social, academic and/or vocational development.

As an academy member we invest our professional expertise, equipment, time and effort for you to achieve your true potential.
