Junior Academy



Junior Academy is Doncaster Elite Football Academies Programme, that is designed to be the perfect introduction to football. It will deliver the basics required to play, learn and love the game. We have a fundamental belief that basics are not just for young players and at every age and stage we grow and develop, and eventually learn to master “Brilliant Basics”. The program is available for all players born between 2013 and 2015 (U6-U8) who want to take their game to the next level. This programme is designed to provide additional coaching for all players, even those already involved with grassroots clubs and runs from October through December and March through September.

Our Focus

The Jr. Academy Programme’s focus is to prepare players for our competitive programme. Our programme offers a high level of training by licensed, experienced coaches with a focus on player development. Our emphasis is on individual confidence with the ball, technical development, and placing the kids in a competitive environment to expose them to all the components of the game. We introduce these concepts through our golden thread of beliefs in “Brilliant Basics” and the principles of play, incorporating understanding of angles, distances, timing and situation in a very simple way.

What can you expect from us?

The Jr. Academy program is run by our professional coaching staff. The coaches are here to keep your child’s football experience fun, enjoyable, and help foster a desire to play. Our coaches will provide players with training up to two times per week and games on Saturday mornings (U8s). All games are played in a 5v5 format and every player will have a set team and coach for his/her games on the weekend.
