YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PHASE

The Youth Development Phase is the top tier of our Performance Pathway Programme and focuses on the development of our U13’s – U16’s age groups.

 

The coaching programme increases significantly in terms of the intensity of practice at the YDP. Whilst technical ability is still key in terms of the player development process, this phase is characterised by players learning to play within a team. 

 

Players will be coached to develop greater tactical awareness and understanding of the game and there will be more of a focus on the need to learn how to win but, importantly, with the continued need to develop the player technically and tactically.

 

Our Youth Development Phase squads will take part in a varied fixture programme aimed at giving the players the opportunity to showcase their talents in game situations. Fixtures will include ones against pro club academies, other independent coaching academies, semi pro set ups and higher level grassroots opposition.

 

Our players are expected to show exceptional technical quality, first-class decision-making skills, with an ability to take on board detailed technical and tactical information.

 

Players in this phase typically will have played for a professional club academy, had trials at one or play at a county or district level. However, we do offer players trials if they have the right attributes and attitude to become a Team Elite Academy player.

 

Players who show exceptional talent will be recommended to scouts through our Pro Club Academy Pathway programme.
