5 STAR Lichfield City Academy Performance

Find more Student Feedback here

Academy life for me was life changing, I met some friends for life and was able to improve my ability as a footballer by training daily and receiving top quality coaching. From the first moment I stepped foot into the academy, I felt welcomed and felt as if I was part of a team. Darren and the coaches were always ready to deal with any issues any of us had and made sure that we were the best versions of ourselves on and off the pitch.
My time at the academy produced some of the best moments in my life so far and I’m grateful I had the chance to attend lichfield academy to get my qualifications to help me further my own career and to make unforgettable memories with unforgettable people.
Lichfield City Academy-Coaches


The Lichfield City FC Football Academy provides a two year full time course for school leavers 16-18 years of age, who can prove they have football talent or skills to potentially progress to a career in sport.


The football is structured around eight practical football sessions per week. The focus of these sessions is on tactical, technical and physical ability and conditioning, as well the importance of psychological elements of the game.


The education element of this academy ensures that the players do not miss out on further educational studies. The course is a BTEC level 3 national extended diploma in sport (equivalent to 3 A Levels)


The whole course is interactive and effective in order that learning is enjoyable and encouraged that students strive to attain a distinction grade or A level high standards.
