This week sees the start of Term 2 of our 2017-18 Skills Performance Centre talent identification programme which feeds into our youth development structure.
We have 12 regional football development centres, with three in Luton, open to all youngsters aged from school Year 2 up to Year 7.
The Skills coaching centres offer a termly programmes ending with a trial match for everyone. Successful boys then progress onto our centre of excellence and pre-academy development centres with eventual pathways into our youth academy.
Our successful ‘Skills’ Development Programme is now in its tenth year of operation and provides high quality coaching for up and coming young footballers. Whether you’re an ambitious player wanting to progress towards becoming a professional, or a newcomer wanting to develop the basics, the Skills Programme has something to offer you.
Term 2 syllabus will work on dribbling and running with the ball (ball manipulation) for outfield players, and shot stopping and reaction saves for keepers.
In addition to our first trial match of the season, players will receive a report on their personal development during the programme. If our coach feels you have shown the right levels of ability and attitude during the term you will be given the opportunity to progress to the Centre of Excellence/Pre-Academy. Players who display talent can be moved through the programme after only a few weeks if appropriate.
