Youth Development

Development is a critical component of AmaZulu Football Club.

Over 50 youth, between the ages of 13 and 17, are trained and skilled within our development structures; on the pitch as well as through an academic program with our partner schools; Glenwood High School and Ohlange High School.

The development program offers cutting edge programs tailor made for young professional football players in an effort to ensure they are well rounded individuals who not only work at their chance of becoming star players, but wholesome members of society.
