The GTFC Academy Development Centres Are Back!

5 September 2016

THE Grimsby Town Academy Development Centres are back.

The Grimsby Town academy is committed to providing its players with the finest development opportunities available within the area. This is achieved through programming strategies designed to improve all players in our development centres.   

Our development centre curriculum focusses on each player's technique, decision making and communication with team-mates. The programme is based on our long term player development model, covering the five stages of development - technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social.

Attendance at our centres does not stop players from playing for their local team at weekends. Our development centres are for all abilities – simply turn up and give it a try.    

U6: Monday 5th September 2016 5-6pm.  (£3 per session)

U7: Monday 5th September 2016 5-6pm.  (£3 per session)

GK:  Monday 5th September 2016 5-6pm. (£3 per session)

NEW!  We are now running a 6-12-Year-old goalkeeper development centre.

Grimsby Town Academy also provides development centres for Boys aged 9,10,11 & 12. These centres are run by invitation only. Players are usually invited to attend a centre after being seen and assessed by one of our scouts, or after recommendations from our Grimsby Town FC coaching staff, who carry out coaching sessions throughout the Grimsby area. We also have a strong relationship with local grass roots clubs. Please get in contact if you wish to be considered for a place in our 9,10,11 & 12 program.
