Established in 2014 at the Deutsche Schule Pretoria,South Africa, the academy was conceived as part of the solution to the development problem that exists throughout South Africa. The academy boasts first class soccer facilities, highly trained and dedicated coaches.

The philosophy of BAT Football Academy is to develop each player to his or her fullest potential. To develop not just the athlete but the person, where he is able to function within a team environment and have compassion towards his fellow man.

All the Coaches in the academy are highly qualified and experienced in junior football training. The Coaches’ qualifications vary from SAFA Level 1/CAF B Licences to a SAFA Introductory Licence.All the Coaches have had years of experience in coaching, varying from 4 years to 17 years at Various club and school levels around Pretoria.At the moment BAT Football Academy has the best qualified & experienced coaches of any club in Pretoria. The aim of this academy is to ensure that the quality of coaching remains of the highest standard.

The aim of this academy is not only to become the best developing academy in Pretoria, but in the whole country over the next few years. It is also our aim to be highly competitive in the leagues that are entered in. A main part of the BAT Football Academy is to become a community based club, where the academy will help the less fortunate through collections of food and clothing. It is the coaches’ responsibility to show the children how fortunate they are and that there are people out there with much less. BAT Football Academy will be organising friendly games against teams in the nearby townships (outside the regular league games), where they will be playing games against other teams in the township, but also handing out clothing (used boots & shin guards etc.) and food parcels.
