All elite players will be able to continue their commitment with their school and junior football club whilst getting additional structured coaching and elite football fixtures. Players come through the program as developed footballers as well as disciplined young adults, players that use the program to their advantage can earn successful opportunities within both semi-professional and professional clubs and progress further. All players leaving the program at 16yrs old will have the abilities and attributes needed to move into senior football clubs, to continue successful and enjoyable careers in football. The Program offers clearly defined progression routes for players aged U7 through to senior, semi-pro and professional football including college football academies in Norfolk and football scholarships in the USA.

2021/22 Elite Fixture Program: Each squad will compete in elite football fixtures mainly during school holidays; these are used as assessment games to see how each player has developed. We run U13 to U16 squads in the Junior Premier League program. Other elite squads will benefit from a minimum of 8 fixtures over the season against opposition such as Partner club Peterborough United as well as Norwich City, Cambridge United, Boston United, Kettering Town and AFC Rushden & Diamonds. (These teams were part of our fixtures calendar for the season 2020/2021.) This gives us a variety of games against professional and semi-professional set-ups)

2021/22 Elite Football Tours: Every year Kings Lynn Elite Footballers go on tour to compete in fixtures against other elite football setups and feeder teams to professional clubs, tour professional football stadiums, gain access to professional academies which include taking part in sessions run by academy coaches, watch live premier league, Serie A, Bundesliga and La Liga fixtures.
