Bridging the gap between
Grassroots and the Pro game


Closely Linked With Professional Clubs

Kickstart Academy, better known as ‘’KSA’ is based at Priors Field School in Godalming. The aim is to provide a professional Academy style environment, combined with UEFA and FA qualified coaching, and access to the best facilities. We give our players the opportunity to progress and develop. The Academy is comprised of two groups, Academy and Development.

Academy U7 – U12
The Academy group is invitation only and train on Tuesday evenings. Squads play midweek matches against other independent and professional academies. We also arrange showcase games against Category 1,2 & 3 Academies.

Development U6 – U12
The Development group is open to all abilities and train on Monday evenings. The syllabus has a big emphasis on developing technique and confidence on the ball.

Why us

Why choose KSA to nurture your child’s talent?

We believe Kickstart Academy provides the best platform for youth footballers to progress and break into professional academy structures. Our UEFA and FA qualified coaches have extensive knowledge of youth football; we have experience in Professional youth academies and working with elite players. Our coaching syllabus challenges and engages our players. The Academy is in place to provide skills, technique, confidence and development of all players. We insist all our players continue to play for their weekend Grassroots teams, as we consider ourselves extra training. We act as the bridge in the gap between Grassroots and professional game.
