As of July 2017, SFL is delighted to have entered into a partnership with Burnley FC, of the English Premier League, to bring the first coaching program of its kind to youth players in Shanghai. This program is a separate entity from our other SFL soccer classes.
With a Premier League approved, high-level training program delivered by our vastly experienced and qualified coaching team, the Burnley Soccer Academy provides opportunities for boys and girls from 4-16 years old.
Players can receive coaching from 1 to 3 times per week plus match opportunities, offering the best platform to improve their game. Burnley Soccer Academy supports young players at all levels and abilities, encouraging them to develop at their own speed and within a learning environment that’s right for them.Sign Up Now
Our Burnley Soccer Academy Player Development Centres are located across the city, with each centre following the same format, using the same coaching program and philosophies. The emphasis of the sessions is on fun-filled recreational sessions, as well as developing and improving players who may be looking for a more serious player pathway in the future.
Our Girls Burnley Soccer Academy program is Shanghai’s only exclusive girls’ soccer club designed for talented and committed girls aged 7-15 to train and compete together in a club environment. This program provides training and competition of the highest standards and follows the same overall coaching philosophy as the other parts of the Burnley Soccer Academy. Players who join the SFL Girls Burnley Soccer Academy program take part in a season-long training program and play in the highly competitive league here in Shanghai.
