We believe football is for everyone, however at foundation age the differentiation can be huge and we aim to ensure we can offer a learning environment to suit all children. On Tuesday evenings our selected development squads will train together in their respective age groups. We have great links with EPPP academies and visit clubs to play games and expose children to an academy environment throughout the season.
U6s-U8s will play frequent fixtures from September through to May. All players are required to purchase the Development Squad Bundle as a member of the Development Squad programme. This will be purchased from our Club Shop
In order to ensure that all children have access to a fantastic learning environment we invite striving children to the development squad programme (subject to availability). Our development squads offer us the chance to nurture and challenge children who have a special talent and give them the best chance to reach promising potential in a fun, challenging and motivating environment. Our development squads have a 4 year plan which concludes at the end of the U8s (Year 4 academic year group).
Development Squads will be recruited from all 3 hubs at the respective age groups.
we bridge the gap
WE WANT EVERY PLAYER TO FEEL PROUD TO BE PART OF OUR DEVELOPMENTS SQUADS AND HAVE A DESIRE TO LEARN AND REPRESENT US IN FIXTURES
In the Development Squads players and parents are asked to show the same commitment and discipline that you would attending a professional academy.
