Bahrain Rugby Club manages and hosts a series of Football Academies either on an ‘elite pathway’ or ‘commercial partnership’ basis. These academies are an extension of our regular junior football groups


Academy Details & Training Times




Under 9 Elite Academys

Head Coaches: Mark McCabe

The Elite Academy is a typical example of an ‘Elite Pathway’ academy as it is for invitees from our Under 9s only who have shown the levels of skill and dedication to merit being coached to the next level

We train every Sunday Evening  (in season) from 6.00pm to 7.00pm with a focus on high level skills and fitness development within each player as well as a significant emphasis on the tactical and organisational side of the game



Tekkers Football Academy

Head Coaches: Paul & Deena Shipwright

Paul & Deena have been involved in football and football coaching for numerous years  and whilst Deena continues with her Bahraini National Team commitments they own, manage and supervise one of the Islands biggest football academies.

A typical term will feature numerous sessions based at the club supervised by their dedicated team of professional coaches with each session designed to take the players through a well trodden pathway to develop their potential to the maximum.

Sessions run on Monday afternoons (timings vary depending on age group) with Saturday Mornings dedicated as ‘Game Days’ Tekkers is a commercial academy and is very well run, it works on a partnership basis with the club hence members are given both preference in admission as well as preferential pricing.
