This programme enables our players to train with us as well as competing for their junior clubs at the weekend. The girls will also be given the chance to showcase their ability and what they have learnt in competitive fixtures against other professional clubs, which are played during school half-terms and holidays.
The primary focus of our GDA programme is to create a positive learning environment in which helps players to develop their game. We focus not only on the technical and physical skills of playing the game, but also the social and psychological side to being a football player as well.
– To stretch & challenge talented players giving them the opportunity to grow and reach their full potential.
– To provide the highest quality of football coaching to all participants.
– To assist in shaping good behaviours as well as talent, promoting teamwork and sportsmanship.
Our Elite Development Academy Manager Lewis Bloom added this about our GDA programme “Our philosophy is based on the encouragement of ‘technical grooving’ through the repetition of challenging and focused practice, as well as the creation of an environment that encourages freedom to express individuality without fear of failure. We believe that by creating an environment in which a player can express themselves, be positive and have fun will bring the best out of the players”.
If you have a player that would like to trial with the girl’s EDA please contact Lewis Bloom via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01494 455736.
