In 2006 Glenvale launched their own football academy for kids KICKABOUT. This has helped the club grow at an incredible speed. With the help of qualified coaches the club were able to enter teams within the Paisley and District youth leagues. These teams are now competing within the many age groups entered. The club are presently trying to fill the 1997 age group. This would mean when we celebrate 50 years in 2017, the club will have teams at every age group.
Glenvale have now established links with local professional clubs. We encourage our players to step up to pro-youth level if the opportunity arises. Celtic, St Mirren, Kilmarnock and Rangers have signed Glenvale players for pro youth, as well as other players training within the Kilmarnock and Celtic pro youth set ups. We wish all these players the very best for the future.
