Walton Casuals Football Academy
VLUK - Walton Casuals Campus aims to bring you in and nurture you into better people and better players on and off the pitch through a range of different programmes.
Alongside the football programme, our students complete work placements outside of lessons where they have the opportunity to gain experience in chosen fields of specific interest.
In the first year they have the opportunity to earn the FA Level 1 badge in coaching. A great course to take part in, especially for those wanting to pursue a career in coaching. In conjunction with the work placements it can support the development of skills in coaching, first aid and safeguarding.
The aim of our programme is to enable learners to progress further, to potentially go to university or work in a chosen sports field. The programme allows learners to learn outside the classroom in a fantastic facility; a facility that any footballer dreams to play at let alone study at. Our facility includes two amazing 4G pitches; one with a stadium around it, a grass pitch, an athletics track, a gym, treatment room and multiple changing rooms.
We have a strong dedicated coaching team at the Academy with a wealth of experience in different areas. We have quality coaching from A & B license coaches, a video analyst, qualified tutors and a massive support from Walton Casuals Chairman and ex professional footballer Tony Gale.
The learners study in a comfortable, safe environment where they can focus, relax and then experience a professional footballing environment. We provide a progressive pathway to first team football at Walton Casuals. In our first year 2 academy players had the opportunity to be a part of the first team and laet year we have had 6 players involved. We intend to grow this and give our deserving young players this opportunity. .
