The purpose of the trials is to scout for the best footballing talent across India who would then get a chance to join the second batch of students at our Residential Academy. A team of coaches from BBFS will conduct the trails for interested students aged between 10 and 15 years (who are currently studying in classes 5 to 9 and are seeking admission to classes 6 to 10).

Through this residential setup, BBFS, in partnership with Vedas International School, intends to create an environment which would help academy students achieve their dreams of becoming professional footballers while receiving quality education and not compromising on academics.

Although a paid academy, BBFS Residential Academy will also hold a fixed number of slots for scholarships – to be awarded to the most talented players in India.
