Durham Women FC are delighted to confirm the launch of four new Player Development Centres – offering young players a pathway to our Regional Talent Club.
The sessions, which will begin on 7th June, will be a fun and skills-based opportunity for players to help further their game.
Any aspiring female footballer in Year Three to Year Six (for 2021/22) are able to attend and across a six-week block they will learn from qualified and enthusiastic coaches in a local environment.
The Player Development Centres will form part of Durham Women FC’s talent pathway and will offer youngsters a pathway to progress with the club – but players can combine attending the centre with playing for their current grassroots club.
As part of our continuing commitment to ensure opportunities are accessible across the region, the sessions will be held at four different venues:
- Northumberland – New Fordley, NE23 7RB (Grass surface)
- Newcastle College, NE4 7SA (Indoor sports hall)
- Kepier, DH4 5BH (Artificial surface)
- Bede Sixth Form Centre, TS23 3HB (Artificial surface)
Each venue will hold sessions on a Monday evening, from 5pm – 6pm.
Commenting on the launch of the new centres, Durham Women’s pathway and development manager Maddy Wood said: “This is a great opportunity for young girls to join our pathway with fun sessions focusing on ball mastery with our club coaches, whilst encouraging players to continue to play in their grassroots teams.”
Sessions will be held on the following dates: June 7, June 14, June 21, June 28, July 5, July 12.
Every session will last an hour and will begin at 5pm.
Youngsters wishing to participate in the Player Development Centre can attend all six sessions at the venue of their choice for just £10.
