The New Forest Football Academy is the official Academy partner to Premier League AFC Bournemouth, bridging the gap between grassroots youth football and professional Academy football.
The Academy Coaching team aim to provide the perfect training environment for young aspiring footballers. We offer a complete football pathway with our Nippers and Development centres for beginners, right through to our Academy programme and High Performance groups, who compete in regular fixtures with AFC Bournemouth Academy and other elite centres from across the region.
We are very proud to be the official Academy partner to AFC Bournemouth and over the past four years, more than 40 of our players have progressed into the AFC Bournemouth set up and other professional Academies. When we feel that our Academy players are ready for the next steps in football, we liaise with the AFC Bournemouth head of player recruitment and lead Academy phase coaches regarding trials periods and we support our players in all aspects of their progression.
