About Our Football Development School

4 December 2012

Sponsored by


We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our Football Development School Programme to you and your player. Our vision is to develop potential, learning of the game and enjoyment in a challenging environment.

Players who we feel have developed to the required will in time be promoted for trial at our Academy.

We have developed a very player centered approach, where every minute of every training session is developed to enhance the existing skills of the player.

Players at the Development Schools receive coaching from qualified F.A/UEFA Coaches who work from a syllabus to ensure all topics and areas are covered to improve learning, and develop players in all positions not just as a striker or defender.  To enhance development and learning players work from a training diary which are used to reflect on a topic set out by the coach at training and to look back at the recent game and review their own performance. 

Whilst at the development centre you are still able to continue with your local club commitments which we encourage as part of the player’s development. As we prefer to work in partnership with local grassroots clubs.

The football Development School programme operates as a non- profit making organisation and is funded solely by players at the centre. The programme is worked over a 48 week period leaving a two week break at Christmas and Easter.
We currently have three venues and operate Futsal in Leeds as part of our innovative football education programme.
