Applications are open for places at the Maidstone United Football Academy from September 2018.
A trial for next year’s intake will be held on Thursday 15 February.
Applicants currently in Year 11 will be invited to the Gallagher Stadium from 11:30, for a 12:00 start.
The club’s academy programme is now in its sixth season and applications have consistently outstripped places. During the two-year programme, students have the opportunity to study a BTEC Sport at Level Two or Three, while training and playing at the home of the Stones.

The programme of study
In addition to the BTEC Level 3 award in Sport which will give the learners 1, 2 or 3 A Level equivalence at the end of two years, the programme will also enable learners to gain:
- Qualifications in First Aid
- FA Level 1 Coaching Awards
- FA Level 2 Coaching Awards
Selection for the academy is controlled by a strict process which includes, as mentioned above, a trial with other players and as part of a training session and a formal academic interview with a panel from the team.
