For the Zenit Academy to reach its goals the club should do everything possible to not only recognise the football talent at an early age, but also to oversee the education process throughout the young players life. We have created academy branches in all areas of the city so we can give children the opportunity to play football at their favourite club under the guidance of qualified coaches near their home.

The academy currently has 15 branches across the city, as well as the Leningradski and Pskov regions, as well as in the far off Bashkortostan republic. There are also teams for young players aged 6 to 10 years. Each coach has received instructions on the training process and the style of play Zenit seek.

Branches of the Zenit Academy often hold open tryouts and everyone is invited to take their chance.

If you want to play for Zenit, but for some reason missed the scheduled selections for the academy, there's always the chance with Zenit. We will be glad to see welcome you to try your luck here and join our large number of students. To do this, attend one of the open training at the Academy's branches. The times and dates can be found at your nearest branch.
