Kinetic partners with different football clubs in order to gain access to the best competitions to challenge and showcase our players – as we are a registered charity, we are limited in what competitions we can play in as Kinetic Academy.
We compete in the following competitions and leagues:
- National Youth Alliance League
- FA Youth Cup
- Showcase academy fixtures
- Isthmian Youth League
In the 2019/20 season Kinetic, representing Croydon FC, were the last non-league team in the FA Youth Cup where we eventually lost to Wigan Athletic.
Kinetic play an average of 15 showcase fixtures against professional clubs each season - a fantastic opportunity for our players to impress.
We guarantee at least one fixture per week for each young person enrolled on our programmes.
Kinetic staff also manage at SCEFL Premier and Isthmian level which provides players with opportunities at 1st team football.
Our matches are recorded for each individual to review their performance while Managers and Coaches hold video analysis meetings with squads following matches.
