Open Football Trials

Do you dream of playing for Sunderland AFC? If so, sign up for our Open Football Trials!

Held twice a year for players aged five to 16 years who have ambitions to progress into elite football, participants will be observed by Foundation of Light coaches and SAFC Academy recruitment staff.

Each player will receive individual feedback about their performance, with all players signposted to additional opportunities and the most promising being referred to the Foundation-led Player Development Squads and the Academy of Light for possible further training.

Through our girls open trials, budding female players will be signposted to our Girls Only sessions, Player Development Squads or Sunderland Regional Talent Club trials.

Course Details

Our Open Trials are an opportunity for youngsters to showcase their ability in a professional and safe environment, be assessed and signposted to relevant Foundation programmes on our Player Progression Pathway, take part in a series of games and coaching sessions and receive email feedback on their performance.

Plus scouts from Sunderland AFC will be in attendance, with opportunities for recruitment into their academy.

The Foundation of Light at Sunderland AFC is recognised as the best in the country, using football as a catalyst to support sport, education and health initiatives.

There are no sessions on in this area at present

The overall ambition is to become a SAFC Academy player but our alternative signposting opportunities ensure everyone has the opportunity to stay involved in the game at all levels.
