Academy costs will be $180 per term, ($10 per session), payable at the commencement of the term.

Trials for all Federation Youth teams (including U-12 Federation Junior) will be held as follows:

Evaluation/Trial sessions:

Tuesday 20th February
Tuesday 27th February
Time: 4.30pm

Trialling players will need to attend at least three of these sessions.

Please note: This registration is only for the Cambridge Football Club Youth trials for the Youth teams. Players will still be required to register to play football for the club for the 2018 season. Club registration will open shortly.

Teams will be advised by Friday 2nd March, with Academy training commencing twice per week from Tuesday 6th March. The first game of the season is Sunday 8 April. We understand that training days/times may clash with summer sports commitments in Term 1, so if you have any concerns please speak with the coaches, so we can accommodate your child.
