The Academy

creating oppourtunities for Potential to excel

Academy of Sporting Excellence (ASE) football division was created to try and develop grassroots footballers and progress into elite academies.
Doing this was an instant success and our first players travelled through the system and were signed into professional clubs; Eli -Tottenham Hotspur FC, Jordan- Chelsea FC, Morgan -Arsenal FC & Vashon - Arsenal FC. 

Since then ASE has being developing and progressing becoming stronger and more influential within the football academy world.

We have also had players leave us and develop a career in football as non playing staff with 3 current academy coaches, 4 football agents, 2 scouts & 5 studying in university to become physiotherapists
