The BSI Football Academy offers the opportunity for high school students to join a full-time programme modelled on the leading football academies in Europe.
The programme combines a quality education with top class football training and athletic development, with the goal of developing well-rounded young people for success in life and on the football pitch.
All of this is presented in a structured and disciplined environment, allowing the students to flourish to their potential and at their own pace.
Students attend the BSI Study Centre (Sports School) at Huddle Park in Linksfield, Johannesburg in the mornings, and receive football-specific holistic training every weekday afternoon at Jeppe Quondam Sports Club. The football programme is designed and managed by our Technical Director Zeca Marques. Click here to download brochure...
