The Football & Education Programme runs for a two year period and during this time students are able to study from a wide-range of A Level and BTEC courses.  In addition, students receive approximately 6-9 hours per week in active training from UEFA qualified Academy coaches and play in regular league mathces representing the club.

  2. Attend and pass the trial.  Trials will be held during the course of the year.  You can book a trial by visiting the AFC Wimbledon website.  You can also email Andrew May for more details.  If you would like to discuss the programme, please call 020 8247 9911.

    Note: You must bring playing kit - boots fit for astroturf, shin pads (no pads no play), towel, shower sandals and a non-fizzy drink.

The Football & Education programme has proven to be very successful in recent years and has produced players who have gone on to:

  • Progress and represent the club's Football League Youth side.
  • Earn scholarships with the club.
  • Earn professional contracts with the club.
  • Represent England Colleges Under-19s.
