LA Galaxy have announced dates for open tryouts for their young professional team, LA Galaxy II, in an effort to expand their recruiting pool and discover players for the USL season.

“We are excited to see new players and have organized this event to expand our talent identification efforts,” said LA Galaxy II Head Coach Mike Muñoz. “We want to find young talent who can enter our organization through Galaxy II, then work their way up to the first team.  Scouting for Galaxy II gives us a chance to evaluate many different players: hidden gems that may not have agents, players without a fair chance in the past, first time pros, or young pros who are not under contract.  We want to make sure that everyone has a fair opportunity to be evaluated for a chance to earn a professional contract on our LA Galaxy II roster."

The technical staff will choose participants from the open tryouts for further evaluation. The LA Galaxy will arrange a flight, hotel and food for the chosen players, who will train with LA Galaxy coaches during the week of their stay. LA Galaxy will select players from this training to extend their trials with LA Galaxy II, for a chance to earn a professional contract.

Brentford FC Football Academy Trial Dates

Brentford FC Community Sports Trust has announced that the next trials for its Football Development Centre (FDC) will take place on Tuesday 9 April 2019 at Uxbridge High School. The FDC offers talented young players the opportunity to receive elite coaching– enhancing their skills in a player-centred environment.

What does the Football Development Centre involve?

With elite football coaching spanning more than 18 years, players will attend weekly training sessions at venues in Southall, Twickenham and Uxbridge. Goalkeepers are catered for with specialist coaching staff. The FDC includes term-time training in the evening and a structured development match programme against other football sports trusts such as Coventry City, Ipswich Town, MK Dons, Oxford United, Wycombe Wanderers and many more.

Plus, there are established Performance Squads as a level up from the current FDC programme. This initiative provides capable players with the opportunity to play against more skilled teams.

What is the benefit of joining the Football Development Centre?

Parents have highlighted the positive impact our FDC has had on their children.

Damian Christian, whose son attends our FDC, said: “We would like to thank the Brentford FC Football Development Centre and all the coaching staff for helping with Frankie’s footballing progress. He has thoroughly enjoyed the training after joining aged seven, the coaches and methods used by the development centre has had an incredibly strong and positive effect on him as a person and player.”

Simon Cairnes agrees: “When the boys play against other opposition, their superior skills, positioning and tactical knowledge really shines through and shows just how well they are coached.”

What is the criteria for the trials?

The trials are available to:

  • boys in school years 1 to 11
  • boys who live in Hounslow, Ealing, Richmond, Hillingdon and Spelthorne.

Excitingly, the Football Development Centre will run sessions from Gunnersbury Park’s new sports hub from September. The new £13.8 million sports hub will provide top-class facilities – including two outdoor floodlit artificial grass pitches.

This 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 this academy catchment, then your best chance will be to join the Academy.

About this Academy

This Academy offer an advanced football development and education programme supported by expert and dedicated staff.

This Academy is located at:

 

This clubs 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 three clubs are now free (U12+) to recruit from all over the nation.

Previously, Category three 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 here, to help house young promising talent in safe family environments.

Upcoming Fixtures

We have 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 Academy age groups.

 

How to get a trial at this team

In most cases to get a trial at this team you would need be selected to have a trial at this club, so it is important that footballers are spotted in the right places at the right times. For some players, football clubs prefer a more direct approach such as sending in links to videos of themselves playing football, but it is worth bearing in mind that clubs receive thousands of these football CV videos each week and don't always have lots of time to watch them all. We have found the most effective way of getting scouted for a trial at this club is by following a few simple step.

Scouts regularly select young players from soccer school sessions and invite them to trial to places that are called football development centres, and anyone can play in their soccer schools so it offers an open door for all players to get spotted and scouted.

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

 

How to get scouted by a Football Academy Scout

Football Academy Scouts offer players the chance to trial at Football Clubs. Many players are lucky enough to find themselves in the right places when scouts are watching games, but we are also very aware that good talent can slip through the net. Professional Football Clubs do offer football and soccer players the chance to directly apply for a trials by contacting them through official trial application routes, such as the clubs direct trials contact or through the Academ Development Manager.

To apply and get scouted by a scout please follow these details.

Understandably they are not always able to respond to everybody due to the volume of applications, but this does serve as an effective way to alert football scouts about your skills and footballing talent with a view for those players and parents looking to take their football to the next level, eve professional and secure a genuine, and real football trial

To get scouted for a trial simply collect the following information:

Birmingham City Official Player Recruitment Process 2020 - 2021

The player recruitment department is tasked with the monitoring, selection and transition of players operating outside of our Academy environment. The recruitment team will work collectively with our coaches to prioritise the identification of players within the three phases of the player pathway.

The priority of the department is to recruit, develop and produce players able to reach the Academy’s core purpose. This process is player centered, focusing on the identification of players able to excel in one or more of the four corners associated to player development and, where possible predominantly recruit from a catchment area within an hour of Birmingham. The strategy will be collaborative in nature, planned and aligned to the profiles through each of the development phases where appropriate.

PRE-ACADEMY

The Pre-Academy is a development programme designed to identify, assess and nurture local talented individuals between 6 - 8 years of age. The primary aim is to develop technically gifted individuals for our U9’s squads who become accustomed to the club’s culture and playing philosophy through weekly training sessions and games, allowing for an easy transition into the Academy way of life. The major emphasis of the programme is technical development. With the use of the clubs training facilities, and a structured coaching syllabus and games programme, our UEFA qualified Academy staff seek to increase player to ball contact time in a fun, inclusive and professional environment.

COMMUNITY TRUST

The Club has a very large Community Trust scheme operating a number of local coaching programmes. The Community Trust run a shadow squad programme for U12-U14 players participating on a weekly basis in a number of local grass root leagues. There is also a full time programme for the U17-U19’s.

Players from within the Community Trust programme can be directly recommended by a member of staff for a trial period. In addition to this, each Community Trust coach working within the shadow squad and on the U17-19 programme acts as a spotter, recommending opposition players they have seen in the fixtures that their respective teams have participated in.

SCHOOLS FOOTBALL PROGRAMME

Within the West Midlands area there is a thriving schools football programme. Through community links, it has been identified that there are some young players who only participate in schools’ football and may not be observed participating in local grass root fixtures. There are a number of reasons for this, the most common being a recent move to the area or little/no parental support.

The Academy continually supports West Midland District Schools at both primary and secondary level allowing the use of the training facilities for prestigious games in their calendar. School staff are also invited to Academy CPD events in order to aid their development as coaches. This relationship means there is the opportunity for talented players who are identified by school staff to be recommended directly to the Recruitment Manager/Officer. This may lead to an observation, and if suitable, an invitation to the Academy trial process.

TRIAL APPLICATION

The Academy is always on the lookout for local talented young players. Should you or someone you know, wish to be considered for a trial please follow the procedure set forth below. Players between 9 and 18 years old are asked to send their playing CV and cover letter to the Academy Recruitment Manager and Officer.
