The aim of our Football Development Centre is to provide a positive, fun and challenging learning environment for all boys and girls of varying age and abilities to develop and grow their love of the game.

All of our sessions are delivered by FA / Uefa qualified coaches through game related practices, individual, group and team challenges that encourage players to improve their technique, individuality, communication skills, physicality, decision making and tactical understanding of the game.

Each week the players will work on a chosen theme and will take away key learning objectives from the session. These themes will be directly related to the three key elements of the game – in possession, out of possession and transition.

Sessions take place on our brand new state of the art 4G pitches at:

Fylde Sports & Education Centre
Mill Farm Sports Village

Every Tuesday (Excluding Christmas & New Year)

5:00pm – 5:45pm – Ages 3-4 years & 5-6 years

6:00pm – 7:00pm – Ages 7-8 years & 9-12 years

6:00pm – 7:00pm – Goalkeeper specific training for players aged 7-12 years

Attendance at the centre does not stop players from playing for their grassroots team at the weekend and is designed to be supplementary.
