All sessions run in school time only. Sessions will cost £20 per half-term and money will be collected on the first session. Parents may stay and watch the sessions.

Places are on a first come first served basis so if all places are taken players will be put onto a reserve list.

The aims of the sessions are to provide players with structured coaching sessions and enhance their football skills, and to also help us to identify and produce players to represent Scunthorpe United Academy.

Any players that show outstanding individual talent will be invited to train/trial with our current Academy squads.

There is no official assessment of players at any of our development Centres.

All of our Academy coaches have Enhanced CRB disclosures, have a child protection/safeguarding children certificate, are emergency aid trained and are Football Association qualified coaches.
