Open Days And Trials At The FootballCV Football Academy

The Academy will be conducting Open Days and individual taster days at The Borderville Sports Complex for players and their families interested in joining for the 2017-18 season. The Open days and individual taster days will enable attendees to view the facilities and meet Academy staff, with potential students featuring in a trial match to enable the coaching team to assess their ability.

Attend an Open Day or Individual Tour

Open Day dates are now available for students interested in joining the Academy for the 2017-18, the dates confirmed are as follows:

  • Friday 30th June 2017

For those players and families unable to attend a specific open day, the FootballCV Academy can still arrange an individual taster day, on a convenient date and time. Please do advise us on the registration form any specific requests and we will endeavour to meet your requirements.


Please note that to attend an open day and trial, players must attend with a parent or recognised guardian.

To attend a tour and trial for the Academy please complete the form here and return to us or make a secure payment online.

We would always recommend a student and their family visit the Academy, when considering joining our program. That said, should a player be unable to attend an open or taster day, we are able to assess their application and skill set through video footage, along with references from their current qualified coach. A link to the relevant footage can be emailed or a hard copy DVD posted to the Academy address for consideration, both methods must be accompanied by the relevant open day application form.

Please note to register to attend an Academy Open Day, Taster Day or to be assessed through video footage, a deposit of £75 is required.

If you are visiting the UK to attend a trial or open day at the FootballCV Academy and are not a citizen of the UK or EU, you may be required to obtain a general visitor visa.

This visa enquiry form can be used to determine whether you need to obtain a visa as well as providing details of the nearest visa section where you can make your application. Letters of confirmation to support an application can be sent by the Academy on receipt of a completed registration form and deposit.
