The Thanet Academy runs on a Monday and Friday night at the Minster 3G pitch in Ramsgate. We run squads from the ages of under 7 to under 16. The under 7 to 12 age groups are split into 3 levels; Elite, Development and Foundation. Catering for the more advanced local players as well as those who are just starting to play.

The Thanet Academy is our flagship academy and was set up in 2011 by head coach Sebastian Tidey with the intention of giving young football players in and around the Thanet area professional football coaching. The intention of the academy is to help our players reach their own individual potential as a footballer. The academy started with 27 players at under 7 to under 10 level and within 2 years grew to a 140 strong academy from the under 7 to under 16 age group. The first year included exciting fixtures against West Ham United, Gillingham FC and Crystal Palace FC.

The Academy has continued to grow and the introduction of the development centre in 2012 has allowed for an easier transition of players into the academy. By constantly progressing and tweaking the coaching plans we have ensured that the players are getting the best opportunity they can to reach their own individual potential.

All of the academy sessions are held at the Minster 3G pitch in Ramsgate and are run by a collection of experienced local coaches. We currently work with players from over 11 different youth football teams showing the faith that local clubs have in the Academy.
