Sheffield United Academy will be providing current U8s to 13s players with the opportunity to attend open trial sessions during the month of September.
Sessions will take place in the Leeds/Wakefield area.
Boys that are interested in attending should register their interest by asking parents to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org - please put 'U8-13s Open Trial' as the subject of the email and provide us with your name, date of birth and a brief outline of playing history.
In order to be selected for a trial you must not be currently registered with another professional club.
There are only a limited number of places available so not all players will be invited - we hope to run similar activities on a regular basis to give as many local players as possible the chance to enjoy the Academy experience.
The closing date for applications will be 5pm on Friday 4th September. Those that are successful will be contacted by Academy staff.
We hope to hold more sessions for a variety of age groups later in the year.
Some players may be offered the opportunity to register with the Academy following the trial session; others may be invited to attend one of our assessment centres.
However players and parents are reminded that obtaining a schoolboy contract is a huge challenge so as a priority players attending need to be realistic about the chances of success and use the opportunity to enjoy the facility and experience that the Academy offers.
