In a bid to build Elite teams that will compete nationally and internationally, the AS Roma Academy in Abuja is organizing tryouts sessions to recruit players with outstanding capabilities and impeccable character into its elite teams for both boys and girls.

Prior to its first tryouts, the Academy made available up to 60 scholarship slots for individuals who performed exceptionally at the tryouts in January of 2021. Out of the over 200 participants from the first Tryouts,  up to 30 slots were allocated to successful candidates with a fourth of that number receiving one-term scholarships and the rest full year scholarships at the Academy.

Riding off the successes from the first term, Academy is on a mission to recruit more players of outstanding quality into its Elite teams for boys and girls and has increased the scholarship slots. Up to 100 players will be awarded residential scholarships into AS Roma Academy Abuja.

The Academy is keen on providing the environment and resources for players in these teams to develop and grow and have access to various academic and professional pathways.

Giving Nigeria’s growing youth population and the country’s love for the beautiful game, the Academy is optimistic that they will discover these players. This opportunity provides much more than just football playing opportunities, the program will build the players athletic wise (technical, tactical and psycho-social development among others) and otherwise including character building, leadership development and much more.

The methodology and the training program come directly from AS Roma and will include work done mainly on position games, simplified games, technical/tactical development, motor and postural activity, technical ability, ball management and mobility exactly as it is done in AS Roma in Italy.
