The Sports Active Coaching GDC is a new training initiative in the Kingston area with the idea to set a good foundation in the development of female players in a ‘club neutral’ environment. Focus is on players 7-15 years old as these are the golden formative years.

The aim of the development centre is to offer players an opportunity to improve their individual skills, technical ability and tactical game understanding within a professional coaching environment. The GDC offers a variety of individual and small group training programmes to accelerate the individual development of players.

An excellent opportunity for any aspiring female footballer, the new GDC will utilise top level coaches delivering from age specific progressive curriculums to give talented youngsters the best opportunity to fulfil potential.

Alongside weekly sessions tailored to each female participant each age group will also have opportunities to represent the development centre in matches against female academies and centre of excellences.

I believe Sports Active Coaching’s Girl’s Development Centre is exactly what players need to refine their technical skills. A lot of emphasis is placed on improving physical attributes such as strength and speed nowadays, but this should not be at the expense of nurturing technical skills.

The GDC will look at fitness and your technical ability amongst other things. This is what is going to make the difference in a match. When you get the ball at your feet, you’ll only play that killer pass or score that game-winning free kick if you’ve already practiced it.

I don’t know if practice makes perfect, but practice definitely brings confidence. And there are no limits for a confident footballer! Being a part of the Girl’s Development Centre will help you get there.

I believe that the Sports Active Coaching’s Girl’s Development Centre provides a fantastic opportunity for players to develop their technical skills. Whilst other attributes are also of importance, a player who displays technical excellence will make the crucial differences in a game.

I believe that having the chance to develop these skills each week with the guidance and support of dedicated SAC coaches will have a hugely positive impact on players’ confidence, and ultimately their performance!

Developing technical excellence is fundamental to not only improving footballing ability but also in increasing confidence and self-esteem. The programme will look to improve the individual as well as the athlete.

After playing Division 1 college football in America I think starting out at an elite girls development centre is the best way to get better and make the most of your football experience.

The Sports Active Coaching Girl’s Development Centre for female footballers gives you a great opportunity to train at a high level week in and week out, with the support of qualified coaches, in order to achieve your football dreams!
