GRADUATES AND EXIT ROUTES
Kinetic Academy has supported 51 players into professional football in the past 8 seasons, some of whom are now playing at the highest level of European and International football. We are incredibly proud of our graduates and they often return to visit our Kinetic programmes and impart their knowledge and experience on the next generation. Kinetic provides the best platform for aspiring footballers to move from grassroots football into the professional game.
As a registered charity, our success is measured by whether our pupils are classified as in further Education, Employment or Training when they leave us. Under 5% of our young people do not fall into one of the three categories stated above after completing our 2 year programme. Alongside our US University links we have partnerships with leading UK universities, such as Bath and Loughborough, who offer a full time football programme alongside degree courses.
