About Rohan Ricketts Academy

Rohan Ricketts has an outstanding background as a professional soccer player with over 17 years of experience. He brings his knowledge, passion, and expertise to the pitch to help you improve, believe & achieve!

Rohan is known as arguably the world’s most traveled footballer. Starting his career with 8 years at Premier League giant Arsenal FC he then moved on to Tottenham Hotspur FC, before spending time at Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and then Barnsley FC including two loan spells at Coventry City FC and QPR FC.

In 2018, Rohan signed with Toronto FC in the MLS (Major League Soccer) where he stayed for 2 seasons before going on to play in 10 different countries, across 4 different continents, gaining a wealth of knowledge and contacts, as well as learning to speak fluent Spanish.

Rohan also represented England in the U18, U20, and U21 playing against the likes of France, Italy, Portugal, and Holland, to mention just a few.

He has graced the pitches and stadiums of Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Ajax, Barcelona, and Wembley.

During his career, he has played with, and against, some of the greatest players in the world such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen, Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe, Ledley King, Dwayne De Rosario, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Arjen Robben, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Wesley Sneider, Zinedine Zidane, plus many more.

He has been coached by world-class coaches such as Arsene Wenger, Glenn Hoddle, Martin Jol, and Jacque Santini, amongst others.

Rohan is one of the few people in the world who can offer a true and honest insight into the journey an aspiring young football player must take to play professional soccer at the highest level.

That is why we feel that at the Rohan Ricketts Academy your son or daughter will be getting the best possible training and development to help them take their game to the next level.

​Rohan believes that young Canadian soccer players do not get enough developmental training. He has noticed that in Canada there is a big emphasis on winning games and that training lacks the teaching of core fundamentals.

He has also noticed that children in Canada do not appear to play as much street football as children in many strong footballing nations do. Rohan believes that playing football should be a fun, healthy, and confidence-building process for youth all around the world.​

This is where the Rohan Ricketts Academy provides great value!
