Development Centre

The Development Centre encompasses elite players from U7 – U12. It is aimed at players who want additional coaching or who are at the standard to be considered for Academy football. This new technical session will be part of the Academy pathway and coached by Academy staff following the Academy syllabus.

Players will continue to play for their local club but come to Stevenage FC Academy once a week on a Wednesday for coaching and assessment. As participants improve they will move up the Elite Player Pathway which could lead all the way to the Academy squads.

Throughout the season, players will receive written reviews. These reviews are given to monitor the performance of the players and identify areas of strength and areas of improvement needed to progress up the pathway, ensuring they are always aware of what they need to do to develop.

We have had real success with players progressing through the pathway in recent times with numerous academy signings having started their journey participating in these sessions.
