Academy

The Greenwich Peninsula Academy is an integral part of the club’s player development journey with the mission of identifying, attracting and developing players for professional leagues.

Through innovative programming and a dedicated support team, the Academy produces the most talented, hard-working, and dedicated players locally and regionally. We advocate for holistic player development and provide the most challenging training environment in South East London.
