Testimonials

"I am very passionate about the Academy providing the best level of coaching in a safe, enjoyable and upbeat environment for girls and boys of all abilities from beginners to potential professional trialists. to learn, have fun and make new friends in a time where modern technology is preventing the younger generation from what I believe they should be doing, which is to be outside, being kids and having fun (as my happiest memories were being outside on a football pitch)"
Adam Virgo
"Thank you. He is really enjoying his 1-1 sessions and is absolutely knackered after. He was very impressed with the hand warmer you gave him too, he did not stop holding it all night! Thanks again for all the efforts you are putting in to making his 1-1 sessions run smoothly, I couldn’t ask for better."

"We would like to thank you and your coaches for the amazing hard work you all put in to the academy. My Tyler loves coming to the academy every Thursday and we could not believe how much he has grown in confidence; within weeks he has come on leaps and bounds. We can’t thank you enough for what you have taught Tyler about football, what he did not know before and how you have built up his confidence. Would highly recommend. Thank you!"

"My son has just finished his third day of football with you and has loved every minute. The coaches have been great, pushing him to work hard and challenge himself.

Bring on September when he can start training again weekly!"

"I would like to thank you personally for your constant prompt response to any email requests and queries. We have had nothing but a great experience from you and the company and would happily recommend you to anyone. My son has very much enjoyed the sessions he has already attended. We feel we have already seen improvement in his skill and a better understanding of the game, only after the two sessions he has already attended when playing for his Saturday team. I can only highlight the positive experiences and personal touch we have had with the Adam Virgo Academy team."

"My son is really enjoying the football academy. The coaches are great, it has been a wonderful experience and a great confidence boost! Coby’s football skills have improved greatly after 3 days. His confidence has grown a lot and I think he will now be more willing to try new things. The coaches were fantastic with the children, and it was great to see how involved you both were yourselves. It was nice that I was able to stay with my son and watch, as he would not have taken part if I did not. Jessica was extremely helpful during the booking process. Thank you, Coby had a brilliant time."
Gemma, Sussex UK

My son attends football elsewhere but is desperate to sign up to Adams academy to attend the weekly sessions, we have been so impressed so far that we are looking forward to signing him up and getting him started. Well done to you both, a brilliant start to the Academy, with more brilliant things to come."

Rachel, Sussex UK
"My son came along to the half term camp and had nothing but good things to say about the 3 days, despite the poor weather. It is great to see him and his 2 Athletico Burgess Hill mates brimming with confidence and loving their football. It's a tough ask to get the coaching levels just right, but it appears that you have done exactly that. From a parent’s point of view, the thing that stood out was the personal touch that you both added on and off the pitch, so thank you very much and we would be happy to put my son into future academy sessions."
Jez, Sussex UK
