Our Academy

Our Academy, based at our Hogwood Park training ground, is a source of great pride at Reading Football Club.  As well as sourcing local young talent and producing fine footballers, our Academy also provides a fantastic education for our fledgling players to ensure they can maximise their potential, on and off the pitch.  Scholars in our Under-18 team compete in the Under-18 Premier League and the FA Youth Cup; our Under-16s also play competitive fixtures, whilst the younger age-groups - down to Under-9s - combine regular training with a games programme against other clubs.
