IS YOUR CHILD ALREADY A PRO CLUB ACADEMY PLAYER?
There are literally 1,000s of boys and girls up and down the country signed to pro club academies but only a very small percentage of these will ever get through to even the scholarship stage. At Elite Football Management we understand that there are many hurdles for young players to overcome if they are to achieve their potential and dreams.
We have been involved in developing young players for many years through our academy and have seen 100s of players go on to sign for academies from the age of 9 years. Whilst we will do everything we can to encourage and develop young footballers to reach their potential, nevertheless we will manage those expectations and that of the young players parents or guardian.
The current FA rules are that no football agent can sign any player under the age of 16. Between the ages of 16 and 18 years the signing of a player must be via the parent or guardian.
We will only look to offer advise to parents of players below the age of 16 and support them through their child's years in a pro club academy and the pit falls that could lie ahead. The EPPP can be a complicated thing to understand and we can help inform parents of how the system works. With our vast list of contacts at pro clubs of all levels should the worse happen and your child is released then we can act to ensure that they get trials at other clubs.
