Youth Academy Season 21/22
Institute FC will begin it’s recruitment for it’s 2021/22 NIFL Academy teams in May. Thank you to the clubs that have already put a number of their young players forward for consideration and to the other clubs we have already been in contact with. In the coming weeks we will communicate the start date and schedule for this process.
Institute are committed to offering a pathway from youth to senior football for all local players via the NIFL Academy and Development leagues. Last year, with the help of our football community and for the first time, we invited players from clubs in the area to join Institute and make up our U16 NIFL squad. We are delighted at the development of the squad, even in a very interrupted season.
As in previous years we will always have families contact us about this opportunity for their sons. Our advice remains the same and we will always ask the player and family to go back to their existing club and tell them they would like to be considered for Institute.
