Academy Teams

At Badu we’re not just your ordinary football club, our club ethos is for all our players to develop within a disciplined, demanding and a fun environment, so they’re able fulfil their full potential. We aim to educate our players to play the game in the right manner on and off the pitch.

Our players attitude off the pitch is a big thing at Badu Sports as we believe it is important for all players to try hard at every challenge they may come up against and be disciplined in the game and out of it. We believe by standing by these rules we are giving our players the best opportunity in their footballing journeys.

All our coaches are FA qualified and aim that all sessions are delivered at a high intensity so that all players are prepared come match day. The sessions they deliver are broken down into 3 different areas; technical, possession and match play. Throughout these areas we highlight how to improve their skills within a match scenario.

We’ve currently registered five teams within the Hackney Saturday Football Youth league meaning that all games will either be played at Mabley Green or Hackney marshes. Our players are picked from our development centre, which runs on Saturday mornings and allows all pupils from all schools to attend. On days the teams don’t have games they attend the development centre for further training and development.
