    Kinetic Foundation Football Academy: Academic Year 2023-24

    Kinetic Foundation are delighted to be able to offer an individualised, innovative football and education programme for 16-18 year olds at Harris Academy Orpington.

    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 their excellent football provision they deliver a volunteering programme, mentoring scheme, mental health support pillar and employability workshops on career planning.

    Since the beginning of our partnership, 5 Harris Academy Orpington Sixth Form pupils have signed contracts with professional football clubs, all of whom were on the football and education programme with Kinetic. Tosin Olopade (Burnley FC), Ralfi Hand (Charlton Athletic FC and Jabari Christmas (QPR FC) all signed in the 2021/22 academic year while Reggie Rose (Brentford FC) and Chuks Uzor-Greey (Ipswich Town FC) both signed in 2022/23, becoming Kinetic’s 66th and 69th signings to professional clubs that have been involved in their academy programme.


    The Kinetic Academy programme encourages every student to stay in education and complete a university recognised course, all whilst pursuing their football dreams. This education environment, partnered with a structured football programme, provides each student with an invaluable structure to help them develop and ensures there is no compromise on educational potential.

    Kinetic 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 weekly matches in leagues and cups such as the SCL Youth Development League, AOC Sport/ECFA League, Tactic League as well as the opportunity to play in the prestigious FA Youth Cup and showcase games Kinetic play against professional club academies. There is also school competitions, both regional and national, that Kinetic represent Harris Orpington in.

    Kinetic is extremely proud of their track record of supporting young people to secure football contracts at professional clubs – 72 young people in ten seasons have achieved this. They’ve also supported their graduates into football coaching and the opportunity to go study/play football in the USA.
