Brackley Town FC recognises the importance of developing and nurturing players at youth level, all the way into hopefully becoming professional footballers.
Our Player Development Centres provide high quality coaching for all players who wish to develop their technical and tactical knowledge of the game. The Player Development Centre offers youth football players aged between U8 - U11 an opportunity to progress and develop as a player in a positive learning environment.
For the 2018/19 season we are running our new Player Development Centre on our 3G training pitch, offering players the chance to receive professional coaching from Brackley Town coaches. The sessions will take place during June and July on a Wednesday evening, then if successful will continue throughout the season with regular games being organised either against other local teams or our Academy teams.
The aim of the Player Development Centre is to provide youth players with a greater opportunity to progress to our Academy teams. Our Player Development Centres are the second tier in our Player Pathway with the Academy at the pinnacle.
Any players progressing to the required standard will be invited into the Academy where players are observed in a challenging environment and recommended for the Academy where relevant, although this isn't guaranteed.
To further improve the standard of local football in and around Brackley we are offering groups of 8 or more players who book onto a Player Development Centre at the same time a discount of 50p for each player.
The Cost per session will be £3.00 per player. With discount the cost will be £2.50.
Sessions will run from June 6th then every Wednesday until the end of July
U8 / U9 6-7pm
This is a fantastic opportunity for players of the same team to participate in further high quality coaching in addition to that already received at their club teams, which will enable players to train together for an extra hour each week and therefore improve performance when playing for their local club.
