Development Centre

Running every Tuesday our Football Development Centre is the ideal location for aspiring footballers to improve, learn and have fun throughout topic focused sessions led by UEFA qualified coaches.

How does the centre work?

The aim of our Football Development Centre is to provide a positive, fun and challenging learning environment for all boys and girls of varying age and abilities to develop and grow their love of the game.

All of our sessions are delivered by FA / UEFA qualified coaches through game related practices, individual, group and team challenges that encourage players to improve their technique, individuality, communication skills, physicality, decision making and tactical understanding of the game.

 

 

Located at the newly developed Fylde Sports and Education Centre, the Development Centre is based in a professional football environment to help the children develop to the best young players they can be. With six 7 a-side pitches and one full size 11 a-side pitch the centre has all the facilities and equipment to ensure the children are learning in the best possible environment to progress. 

Each week the players will work on a chosen theme and will take away key learning objectives from the session. These themes will be directly related to the three key elements of the game - in possession, out of possession and transition.

Where and when?

Sessions take place on our brand new state of  the art 4G pitches at:

Fylde Sports & Education Centre, Mill Farm Sports Village, Wesham, PR4 3JZ

Every Tuesday (Excluding Christmas & New Year)

5:00pm - 5:45pm - Ages 3-4 years & 5-6 years

6:00pm - 7:00pm - Ages 7-8 years & 9-12 years

6:00pm - 7:00pm - Goalkeeper specific training for players aged 7-12 years

 

 

 

Attendance at the centre does not stop players from playing for their grassroots team at the weekend and is designed to be supplementary.
