Train Like A Pro

Working in partnership with Cuadrilla Resources, The Foundation has designed a brand-new programme aimed at offering a unique once in a lifetime experience for grassroots clubs and children across the area.

What is Train Like A Pro?

 Each half term the Foundation opens its doors to the brand new multi-million-pound Fylde Sports and Education Centre to 20 children a day.
 
Each day is designed and built to give the children the feel of a life of a professional footballer player.
 
Working with UEFA licenced coaches the new young players will take place in training, developing their skills across the full spectrum of the beautiful game.
 
The programme also offers the children the chance, to not only play football, but learn the other aspects of what goes on behind the scenes away from the field. Workshops take place each day covering topics such as health and wellbeing, physiotherapy, media and communications and management.
 
Whilst taking part in all of these fantastic opportunities the programme is also closely linked and supported by the senior first teams of AFC Fylde.

 

 
 
Participants get the opportunity to watch and learn from the senior managers whilst they take training in an invite only session that permits the children to see areas that are otherwise inaccessible.
 
Each group of children get to go on a private tour of the ground and during this time they will meet the first team players, hearing their own stories around the journey they have undertaken is always a welcomed experience.
 
This bespoke programme is designed to give the children the once in a life time experience and thanks to our principal partners Cuadrilla there is no cost to the children, parents, managers or grassroots clubs in any way that take part. To date the Foundation has worked with over 300 children, providing over 1000hrs coaching.
