The Development Centres

development-centre-1.jpg

Football 1st Academy Development Centres are professionally run and delivered by our highly qualified and experienced academy coaches.

All coaches are FA qualified, FA emergency aid trained, hold a current FA safeguarding children certificate, are FA CRB checked and coaches are also defibrillator trained and have access to our own defibrillator which is present at every Development Centre session.

 

Throughout Football 1st Academy there is continuity for the players which we feel is very important in order for the young footballers we work with to progress and maintain a high level of performance which will help them develop and give them the best possible opportunity to achieve their goals. Players who attend our Development Centres get monitored and assessed on a regular basis. This enables the coach to tailor sessions to the players individual needs. The centres range from elite invitational only to mixed ability and are age specific. Players who are in one of our mixed ability centres and are fulfilling their potential have the opportunity to be moved to our elite centre if the coach feels they are ready.

So if you are a player who likes to be challenged, has the willingness to learn and the desire to improve and progress then take a look below and see which Development Centre is suited to you and get signed up today!
