Kinetic Foundation Football Academy: Academic Year 2021-22
Kinetic Foundation are delighted to announce a new partnership with Harris Academy Orpington to offer an individualised, innovative football and education programme for 16-18 year olds for the Academic Year 2021-22.
As a registered charity, Kinetic Foundation adopt a holistic approach to develop each young person as a ‘whole’ rather than from just a technical or tactical component. Alongside our excellent football provision we deliver a volunteering programme, mentoring scheme, mental health support pillar and employability workshops on career planning.
November 2021 saw two Harris Academy Orpington Sixth Form pupils sign contracts with professional football clubs, both of whom were on the football and education programme through the partnership mentioned above with Kinetic Foundation. Tosin Olopade joined Burnley while Ralfi Hand joined Charlton Athletic becoming Kinetic’s 51st and 52nd signings to professional clubs that have been involved in their academy programme.
We employ an extensive, diverse and experienced staff body which consists of UEFA qualified coaches, strength and conditioning experts, sports therapists, youth workers, mentors, life coaches and counsellors.
Kinetic Academy scholars will train for five hours per week and play matches on a Wednesday in either the National Youth Alliance League, Bostik Youth League, FA Youth Cup or ESFA National Cup along with other cup competitions.
Kinetic is extremely proud of their track record of supporting young people to secure professional football contracts – 52 young people in eight seasons have achieved this. We’ve also supported our scholars into football coaching and the opportunity to go study/play football in the USA.
