About the Academy

BICADC Football Club Academy develops talented young footballers from the age of 8 – 18 years. Following the implementation of the Premier League Elite Player Performance Plan (EEEP) and our Audit, BICADC has produced a programme of development that replicates the objectives of EEEP represented by a 300+ page document.

The Academy has a team of staff to identify, recruit, coach, develop and support approximately 205 talented young players.

Aims of the Academy

At BICADC Academy & FC we aim to make young players the focal point of the Youth Development Programme, with all our efforts generated towards acquiring and improving players who potentially will have the ability to eventually play for a future adult first team, professional or semi-professional football club.

The welfare of the players will be paramount and to achieve this we have put the following objectives into place.

  • The Academy acknowledges its responsibility to set high football, academic and social standards
  • The Academy will provide a disciplined environment where the players will work together to take pride in themselves and their surroundings
  • The Academy will promote and support good outcomes in terms of health, development and educational achievements of our players
  • The Academy expects all adults who have contact with the players to provide good models of behaviour, be honest and take the feelings of others into account
  • The Academy definition of adult contact with players also includes parents, carers, family & supporters
