About Us

Samuel Football Academy (SFA) focuses on Grassroot developement so that every child learns the right way of playing the beautiful game.

We nurture and educate members, players and supporters to always respect coaches, officials, opponents and their supporters.

However, we do not support a ‘win at all costs’ philosophy. Participation, learning and enjoyment of the game are priorities and players are supported, encouraged and developed both within football and socially.

Players want to join SFA in preference to other academies because we are a community academy, renowned for a competitive edge, we value new and existing members and respect each other.

We Value

  • Respect for teammates, opponents, coaches and officials.
  • Fair Play according to the rules and spirit of sportsmanship.
  • Education for coaches, players and administrators in a supportive team environment.
  • A culture of mature, responsible behaviour at all levels.

Player Pathway

SFA player pathway is always under constant review and development so that we are best suited to provide a structured system to cater our Junior, Youth and Senior talent as well as those players who just want to have fun with their friends.

The Academy has a number of different options to help players develop, grow their skills and knowledge and these includes the Local, National and International Programmes.
