We’re thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with UK Pro Academy, as their Official USA University Scholarship Partner.
Programmes at UK Pro Academy have been designed to mirror that of professional club academy training programmes and are delivered by qualified FA coaches who are experienced in working with elite players. UK Pro Academy understand that not every player that comes to them in the search of a professional contract will be able to do so and therefore, feel that it is important to be able to provide other pathways for young players with aspirations of achieving their dreams through football.
This new partnership will provide an exciting route for players to take upon departing UK Pro Academy, not only taking them to America; but giving them the opportunity to continue playing their sport at a high level, whilst also securing that all-important university degree that will set them up for life.
With regards to our recent partnership, Tim Summerfield, Director of UK Pro Academy, has stated, “UK Pro Academy believe that our partnership with FirstPoint USA will open opportunities for players that come through our doors but aren’t yet ready to step in to the professional game. The US college soccer system is a great way for young players to gain the extra experience and coaching needed to make the big step in to elite football and having a route for players to achieve this, whilst also gaining an excellent education, is a massive bonus for our academy.”
