The aim of the development centre is to offer players an opportunity to improve their individual skills, technical ability and game understanding within a professional coaching environment while undertaking an academy styled training programme. This programme will be based on ball mastery, technique, themed small sided games and 5 v 5 or 7 v 7 matches. During these sessions we will regularly monitor and assess all players. As a result players maybe chosen to represent Sports Active Coaching in matches against other Development Centres or Academies.
The coaches for the session all have UEFA B coaching badges and have previously or are currently coaching at academies. The coaches are also DBS (formerly CRB) checked and are first aid trained.
