Volenti Academy – Croydon
Our Croydon Pre-Academy and Academy sessions have developed into being the go-to venue for players outside the Academy system. Over the past 12 months, the different age groups have played a number of showcase games against professional academies. We have won various tournaments and players have progressed in a variety of ways including signing for professional clubs.
One of the main reasons our sessions are so popular is down to the coaching team we have assembled. We have a good mix of coaches who have worked within the Academy system and ex-professionals who have made over 700 appearances between them.
Ex-Crystal Palace player, Bobby Bowry, explains about the Academy’s ethos: “We aren’t about giving boys false dreams, we welcome any player of any standard into the Academy. However, the one thing that we do insist on is that the player listens to the coaches and wants to learn. If a player is able to do this, then we strongly believe that the environment we create on a Monday and Thursday evening will help to improve their all-around game”
