Slavia focuses on raising excellent football players but we also place a great emphasis on our players’ academic growth. We strive to merge high-quality training procedures with a school curriculum developed by our educational partners. These partners are based at the elementary school ZŠ Eden, where our players take PE classes, the secondary vocational school SOŠ Jarov (Sports Management programme) and the sports high school Sportovní gymnázium Přípotoční. Last but not least, we also collaborate with the University of Physical Education and Sports Palestra that helps the players appropriately combine demanding football training with university education.


We cooperate with numerous football stakeholders, for example, Coerver coaching which focuses on technical skills.

Homegrown players

Throughout its existence the Slavia Academy has raised dozens of outstanding players, for instance Vladimír Šmicer, Pavel Kuka, Radek Černý, Marek Suchý, Tomáš Necid, Alex Král, Jaromír Zmrhal, Tomáš Souček and many others. The Academy and its management work tirelessly on the key task of growing the ranks of successful homegrown players produced by the club.
