Leicester Falcons Academy – Training for the future
Leicester Falcons Academy trains and plays at the Falcons
home ground, Babbington Community College, Strasbourg Drive,
New recruits are always welcome. No experience is required
to start and full training is given.
Falcons Youth (14 -17)
Following the launch of the Junior team, the Falcons started
after-school clubs at a number of schools, which act as a
recruitment for the Junior team, but one school in particular,
Beaumont Leys School, proved very enthusiastic. This school
club for under 16s had a tremendous turnout with in excess
of 30 young people participating each week. The after-school
co-ordinator Shaun Issit felt that he wanted the programme
to focus on the kitted game, not flag football.
Thanks to the help of BAFA and their new 'Kick
Start' programme, this has become achievable through the
loan of equipment and will allow the team to compete in 2012.
Falcons Juniors (16 - 19)
It is with regret that a decision was made yesterday evening
(17th March) to withdraw the Falcons Junior Squad from the
League for 2013. This was due to many reasons but the front
runner was concern for the safety of the players with such
a small squad. However, the Falcons will continue to recruit
and never turn away any potential Football players at any
age and all enquiry routes are still open for those interested
in joining the Club. We will look to re-astabalish ourselves
at this level for 2014.
The Falcons Acadamy junior and youth teams are headed by
Karl Burgess assisted by a team of dedicated coaches. All
are former coaches and players for the Falcons Senior team
with many years of experience at both playing and coaching.
