COVID-19 Update: A message to our Academy and Development Squads from our Head of Academy, Jordan Piper...

"Whilst we all stay home its important that you keep on top of your fitness and follow your Individual Development Plans.  

Andy, Josh, Jack, Lee, Zia, Alex and I have produced some videos and downloads to keep you busy (see below). Have a go at all of the practices, they are aimed at all age groups.

Encourage your parents and all the family to stay active with us too with our 'Learn from Home' page. 

We all look forward to getting back to football later in the year, in the meantime keep up the training, stay safe and stay home!"

The Ignite Academy

The Ignite Academy is for boys U9-U16 looking to play a higher level of football. Players are encouraged to continue playing for their grassroots teams and should view the Ignite Academy as ‘additional training and games’.

Games are played on a Saturday morning.  U11s-U16s compete within the Junior Premier League (JPL). Our academy teams are based at Oxford City FC. Our academy players benefit from tournaments, tours (UK & overseas) and training camps within the school holidays.

Please note: only under 11s-16s enter the JPL; under 9s-10s are our non-JPL age groups and they train during the season and play their matches during the holidays.

We are currently recruiting players for season 2020/21

Please click HERE for the training timetable.

Academy places are allocated following a successful trial.
To arrange a trial, please email courses@ignitesportuk.com
