The Total Sports Coaching Football Academy was set up to push gifted and talented players onto the next level. The aim of the academy is to coach the more advanced football players and progress them on to the next level. The Academy players still play for their club teams and play occasional fixtures against professional clubs for the academy, so far the Academy has competed against Gillingham FC, Crystal Palace FC and West Ham United.

The aims of the academy is to coach each individual player to his potential, whatever level that may be.

The Thanet Academy was set up with 4 age groups and in the last 3 seasons has grown and now has over 100 players registered in 8 different age groups. The progress in the players has been consistent and the hard work paid off when 5 players were signed by professional clubs in the 2013/14 season.

Due to the success of the original academy based in Thanet a new venue in Faversham was opened for the start of the 2013/14 season.

We are constantly looking to progress and advance the academy and are constantly updating the way we run the sessions. As well as this specialist skills coaches and SAQ coaches are now attending the academy so we can help each child become a more complete player.
