It prepares them for a fulfilling professional football career. A total of 120 high school going boys will be selected to attend the prestigious school where they will receive a holistic education that focuses on formal academic competency, life skills training and football development. The school currently employs ten educators and four accredited coaching staff. The search for talent will also travel to the Western Cape, Northern Cape, Kwa- Zulu Natal and the Free State.
