The Halley Academy


Why do it the A.P.D way…?

A.P.D’s Football Education Scholarship stands above its competitors because of the Football Showcase events it holds. A.P.D’s wealth of contacts within the football industry means Football Education Scholarship teams have the opportunity to play a minimum of 10 showcase games against premier league and championship sides.

Teams include: Millwall, Southend, Colchester, Bournemouth, Peterborough, Barnet, Crystal Palace, Southampton, AFC Wimbledon, Dagenham and Redbridge, Sheffield and Charlton.

Day in the life of an A.P.D Scholar…

As an A.P.D Scholar you will be given the opportunity to train like a pro. The weekly schedule includes three days of training with top UEFA qualified coaches who are ex and current professionals (Monday, Tuesday and Friday). The team will compete in a match on a Wednesday in the KSFA Premiership and Championship competitive leagues. Players will receive video analysis from our A.P.D specialist, nutritional support, injury identification and rehabilitation, tailored Strength and Conditioning programs and first class facilities.
