Sign up for Aston Villa Academy Open Trial sessions

Aston Villa Academy can confirm Open Trial sessions will be taking place this season – so move quickly to register interest for your child to take part.

We have always had a great reputation at helping local players through the system and to ultimately have a professional career in football.  

Therefore, the aim of the sessions will be to give new opportunities to players in the local area to experience the academy training programme.

It also provides the club with a chance to identify potential talent that may just be waiting for the right opportunity to showcase their footballing ability in front of academy coaches.

The sessions will be based at the first team training ground and are aimed at outfield players and goalkeepers.  

Please note the following:

- U9-11 (Foundation Phase) – the family home will need to be within one hour travelling time from Bodymoor Heath – postcode B78 2BB

- U12s-U16s (Youth Development Phase) – the family home will need to be within one and a half hours travelling time from Bodymoor Heath – postcode B78 2BB

If you would like your son to take up this opportunity, then please email opentrials@avfc.co.uk an acknowledgement will not be sent, however we will be in contact when dates for this season’s Open Trials, relating to your son’s age, have been confirmed.
