Oak Park - Pre Academy (ages 4-6)

The Albion Foundation is delighted to welcome players back to our Pre-Academy Session this season. 

The Albion Foundation aims to provide high quality and structured coaching sessions, whilst maintaining a positive learning environment. Our player pathway caters for children of all abilities through our Pre Academies and our Player Development Academies within the Black Country, Walsall and Stourbridge. The key aim of our sessions are to develop players’ core technical ability, physical FUNdamentals as well as a basic tactical understanding.

Pre Academies are the entry step on our pathway which is an introduction to football for all levels of ability, leading to our Player Development Academies. The Player Development Academy has a key link with the West Bromwich Albion FC Academy, helping to identify those that are talented and supporting their progress through the club’s player pathway, potentially into professional football environments.

All sessions are delivered by FA/UEFA qualified coaches, that are first aid and DBS checked. Children MUST attend wearing shin pads, correct footwear and a soft drink. Players and guardians should register with the ‘lead coach’ on the evening as they arrive and will also need to be collected at the end of every session. No child will be allowed to leave until the designated parent has been seen.

The prices are as follows: 

Full block (14 sessions) - £98

7 week block 1 (9th April - 21st May ) - £49

7 week block 2 (4th June - 16th July ) - £49

£7 per session
