COMMUNITY: Sky Blues Advanced Football Development Days this Summer

1 August 2018

Sky Blues in the Community will be running some Advanced Development Days over the Summer Holidays.

These days will be staffed by our Level 3 UEFA “B” qualified Player Development Centre Coaches, who also help identify talented individuals for the CCFC Academy. The course is open to all players who are keen to develop their technical and tactical understanding of the game.

This course has been designed alongside the  Academy Coaching Programme to have a holistic approach and to cover the FA 4 Corner Model to fit in with the FA’s Future Player DNA.

The course will be for U7-U16 age groups and will focus on our playing philosophy and principles of play; in possession, out of possession and transition. Each day will focus on one main theme, however all of our themes crossover and link in with each other.

Sky Blues in the Community’s primary focus is on all player’s developing and reaching their long-term potential through ages and stages.

Since the launch of the Player Development Centres over 450 players have been invited in for full trials with 100 successfully signing Academy contracts which is a record we are very proud of. 

Specific Goal Keeper Training: In addition to the main themes on the course, there will also be a FA Qualified Goal Keeper coach present. Players will work in small groups to develop their goal keeping skills before joining the outfield players for further training.

Any new players who attend these days will be invited to join our Player Development Centres and given feedback to which group along our pathway we think suits them best. If you attend any 3 of the days you will be entitled to a month FREE in our Player Development Centres evening training sessions worth £27.00.

Child Care Option for Under 7- Under12s: We understand that during the Summer Holidays, having the option for children to attend a full week of activities opposed to individual days can be helpful.

Therefore, if you book onto an Advanced Football Development Day, we will offer you a discounted rate on our Fun Football Holiday Camps for the remaining days that week.

For example, an U7 Player booking on the Advanced Football Development Day on Monday 6th August could book onto the Fun Football Holiday Camps Tuesday 7th-Friday 10th August for an additional £48 (these courses cost £14 per day so you will save £8). This cost will only apply if you book a full week.
