Juventus Academy– the international football school for children will start running in two Slovenian schools in September 2011 (Osnovna šola Danile Kumar, Ljubljana and Osnovna šola Naklo).

Children, both boys and girls, from 5 – 15 years will be able to apply to join the Juventus Academy programme by 5 September 2011, when the training will begin. All children, not only those from the participating schools, are also welcome to apply. Football training will be organised twice a week (1,5 hour) for younger children (5 – 11 years) and three times a week for older ones (12 – 15 years). Regular football games will also be organised for them with other schools and clubs.
