The Saints Football Academy

St David's College has agreed a partnership with Cardiff and Vale SFA and Ocean Park Arena to launch a new football academy from September 2020.

The Saints Academy will aim to complement the existing sports programmes available at St David's College, with an increased focus on producing top-class players who will progress to League clubs and Welsh Schools and Colleges Teams. There will also be a focus on utilising links with American College programmes so students can enjoy the experiences that comes with studying in the USA on a football scholarship. 

Access to the Saints Football Academy will be designed to fit around academic studies and support students in maintaining academic grades for future success and life beyond college. This means that students do not have to take Sport or Physical Education as a subject to be eligible for the Academy. 

The Academy team will consist of 20 players, working with a team of highly trained and well respected coaches. The Saints Academy will compete in the highest level of college football available for U19 players, including: The ECFA and Welsh Colleges competitions.

If you are a current Year 11 student and have further enquiries about the Saints Football Academy, you can contact St David's College or contact Cardiff and Vale Schools FA.
