To apply, you’ll need to complete the application form and get a parent or guardian to email it to us, plus send a video of you showing off your best football skills via our CBBC uploader (Select ‘Can You Kick It? from the list).
If you are selected by the team here at CBBC, you will be invited to attend a regional Trial where you’ll be able to show off your best tricks and flicks and take on our Can You Kick It? assault course, specifically designed to test all aspects of your football technique – take a look at the series 1 course below.
The 10 footballers with the best time on our course will then progress to Training Camp and have a taste of pro-football facilities around the UK. Only the most capable will progress to the Grand Final and one will be crowned Can You Kick It? Champion 2019, earning themselves a bespoke trophy, tickets to a top Premier League match, a double page feature in Match of the Day Magazine and the chance to star as a footballing extra in CBBC hit-drama, Jamie Johnson.
Trials will take place from late April to the middle of May in various UK regions.
Should you progress to Training Camp, it will take place over 10 days between mid-June and mid-July. You must be available during these days.
