Stellenbosch Football Club

SFC High Performance Academy

A strategy of talent development rather than talent acquisition resulted in our SFC High Performance Academy being launched in January 2019.

The SFC Academy squads play in the High Performance League along with other Cape Town based NFD Clubs (Ajax Cape Town, Cape Umoya & Ubuntu FC) between February and September. In the build-up to the 2019 season, more than 500 players took part in rigorous trials at the Cloetesville, Kayamandi and Idas Valley sports grounds. Trials were organised in partnership with the Stellenbosch Local Football Association (LFA), Local Football Clubs, the Stellenbosch Schools Football Association (SASFA), and the Stellenbosch Local Sports Board.

Important Notice regarding Trials

Please be informed that the Academy Open Trials scheduled for Saturday, 16 November 2019 has been postponed until further notice. We have been inundated with requests [from players, parents and clubs] and have thus decided to move the trails to a later date to give an opportunity for participation to as many players as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
