Montpelier Villa FC first team, under 23s & under 18s, all play at Culver Road, Lancing on the 3G with fixtures on a Friday night, Saturday afternoon & Sunday morning. The Villa first team play in Southern Combination League Division Two.
The Montpelier Villa Football Academy is run by Professional Academy Coach, Kevin Green and is based at the excellent new 3G facility at Falmer Sports Complex. Kevin works with individuals and teams, as well as coaches, to deliver sessions that are based on ball mastery and dynamic offensive play and transition, with sessions linked to the Villa first team and under 18s/23s style of play.
Kevin oversees the sessions with the coaches who have been developed under his tutoring. He regularly brings them together to discuss sessions and match play and brings in new methods and sessions based on how match situations have played out.
The aim is to get 3 hours of training a week working under a 40 week programme which is 9 months of football. The main objective is to meet the EPPP programme
Academy - Premier Teams
All teams in the Montpelier Villa Youth Academy have access to two training sessions a week plus a futsal session throughout the month. The advantage of teams training together and then playing in their teams at the weekend are that the sessions can be tailored to that team’s requirements. We work on a train > play > review, methodology, so that the sessions are always linked to matchplay.
Our new e-learning programme is part of the premier academy package and will enable our players to continue their football education in their spare time away from the club. The home study kits are updated weekly and consist of the following:
Personal training diary
Personal matchday diary
Opportunity to do match analysis of professional games on video
Home challenges & competitions
Access to a library of one to one practices that can be used at home
Academy - Development Teams
If a Montpelier Villa team isn’t quite ready for the step up to the Premier Team level, they can incubate and develop in the Development Team part of the academy. There aren’t as many sessions as the Premier Teams, but the team still plays under the Montpelier Villa banner and Kevin and the Academy coaches work closely together to build the sessions. Kevin also casts his eye on the teams and individuals developing in the Academy and if/when the team is ready to ‘step up’ to the Premier level, the transition is easier to implement.
Academy - Community Teams
Our Community Team programme is perfect for teams that are at an initial stage of their development and whose children might want to play just for fun. Teams can play at their own venue or, if space, they can play at Falmer Sports Complex. The opportunity for Community Teams to progress to Development and Premier is always there, as is the opportunity for individuals to go to separate academy sessions if they want to improve their game.
Academy - Individuals
Our Academy drop in sessions are perfect for those players who are looking for extra training to improve their skills with a professional academy coach. These sessions take place at Falmer Sports Complex and are £10 a session, with a minimum block booking of six sessions paid upfront. Age ranges are from 8-16.

Academy - One-to-One
One to one sessions are designed to help an individual improve on a technique or become even better at an existing ability. Some players want to build their confidence in front of goal or to work on their first touch or remain calm on the ball during a hectic game. Kevin Green, Montpelier Villa’s Director of Football, will discuss the requirements of each player with the player and parent and come up with a bespoke programme to improve performance.
Sessions are priced on an individual basis. To find out more, please email email@example.com
