The Supersport United Junior Academy is a uniquely positioned Academy created from within the very structures of our Soccer Schools brand and the long-standing relationship between Supersport United FC and the Global Football team.
Most Academies involve rigorous scouting and player pulling as they use their status to attract players. The Supersport United Junior Academy on the other hand uses the vast network of our Soccer Schools as its grass roots feeder, a network of Soccer Schools pulling in the same direction and working under the same methodology and idea of creating players. This strategic approach to player development has been a formula of success for seven years running as the Supersport United Junior Academy has constant access to a conveyer belt of young talent coming through the Soccer Schools project. The Supersport United Junior Academy can be seen as a direct extension of the Soccer Schools vision and follows through with the core values and focus of individual player development.
Through the influence of Supersport United FC and the network of Soccer Schools, the Junior Academy plays host to Seventy young footballers ranging from ages seven to thirteen. All players are equipped with a clear pathway of development in front of them, a pathway made up of dedicated coaches and opportunities to succeed in the sport of football.
Established the first ever Junior Academy(U8-U13) connected to a professional club in Gauteng.
