West Brom Football Academy is developed in order to invest in upcoming footballing talent and provide the network, coaching, health and lifestyle advice that each player needs to make a successful career in football. If you are looking for a career in football, and live in the West Brom catchment, then your best chance will be to join West Brom Academy.

About West Brom Academy

West Brom Academy offer an advanced football development and education programme supported by expert and dedicated staff. West Brom Academy is located at: 430 Birmingham Road, Walsall, WS5 3LQ

West Brom Academy use advanced technology and coaching methods to develop their players. They are actively looking for upcoming talent to join their academy, and are very selective about who gets in, as competition is tough.

With the changes that have taken place in the football academy system. Academy Category one clubs are now free (U12+) to recruit from all over the nation.

Previously, Category one clubs could only recruit talent within a 90 minute travelling time to the academy, but the FA have reconsidered this following thinking that the best talent should only fairly be allowed to play in the best academies even if they do not live nearby. This gives the very best talent the very best chances of success, thus growing our home grown talent for the international stage.

This has seen a rise in host families being recruited at West Brom Academy, to help house young promising talent in safe family environments.

Upcoming Fixtures at West Brom Academy

West Brom Academy has a whole programme of upcoming activities, fixtures and events. Check the times of each match or look up the match venue for any of the West Brom Academy age group.

How to get a trial at West Brom Academy

You must be selected to have a trial at West Brom Academy, so it is important that players are spotted in the right places at the right times. For some players, they prefer a direct approach sending in links to videos of themselves playing football, but it is worth bearing in mind that clubs receive thousands of these videos each week and simply don’t have time to watch them all and go about their daily business, so the most effective way of getting scouted for a trial at West Brom Academy is to join a West Brom Soccer School. Scouts regularly select young players from soccer school sessions and invite them to trial at the development centres for Reading FC, and anyone can play in their soccer schools so it offers an open door for all to get spotted.

It is also particularly good planning to take your child to soccer schools as soon as they are old enough, as their competition will be doing the same, so it enables them to develop their talents in line with the same level as their peers.

How to get scouted by a West Brom Academy scout

West Brom Academy scouts offer players the chance to trial. Many players are lucky enough to find themselves in the right places when scouts are watching games, but West Brom are also very aware that good talent can slip through the net, so do offer players the chances to directly contact them with the below details.

Understandably they are unable to respond to everybody due to the volume of applications, but this does serve as an effective way to alert scouts about talent looking to take their football to the next level and secure a trial for West Brom Academy.
