Trial for the Youth Team this summer

10th June 2022

York City FC Academy are delighted to announce an open trial for season 2022/23 U17s (Year 12s).

Successful trialists will be invited to join the York City Youth Team for pre-season in July and August with a view to being offered a 2-year Youth Team scholarship for the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons. York City FC Academy have a proud tradition of graduates being offered professional contracts both at the club and elsewhere; in the last 5 seasons, 18 players have signed first year professional contracts with the club.

The club’s Youth Team is a full-time programme which combines practical training and a fixture programme with the completion of a Level 3 Diploma in Sports Coaching and Development. This is a fantastic opportunity for a limited number of players each season to develop their ability whilst also achieving a recognised formal qualification, the latter of which is delivered by York College. Our Youth Team compete in the National League Football Academy North, with matches on Wednesday afternoons, whilst also entering into The FA Youth Cup and Academy Cups.
