Football Academy - AFC Southgate


kids football training academy

Development Academy

Our academy consists of 16 teams ranging from the U7 to U17 age groups. Teams compete in the Cheshunt Youth League and Watford Friendly League (U14 & 17).

Before we invite a player to academy team training we assess them in our development coaching sessions. We are always keen to recruit new league players and get them registered to play competitive football but from our experience we also believe this should only be done when a player is at an appropriate level to get the most out of this experience.  

At AFC Southgate we place a big emphasis on teamwork and commitment. When deciding to play for one of our teams we ask that players that will be punctual to training and matches, hard working and respectful to our process. We want them to trust in our coaches and commit to our football philosophy. A good attitude and hunger to learn is imperative. 


If your child is interested in representing the AFC Southgate dragon please click below to organise a development coaching session and indicate that it is their intention to trial for a team in their age group. We will then be back in touch upon your booking with further information prior to the session.
