Our Elite Development Training Centre is located in Brockenhurst, progressing players from our High Performance Development Centre to the highest standard centralised venue. Players from Under-7 to Under-12 still attend these sessions to develop and enhance their skills individually, with our most detailed and advanced coaching. Our Elite Players have the opportunity to represent New Forest Football Academy Elite Squads in the Saturday High Performance League Fixtures and also against Professional Academies, such as AFC Bournemouth, Southampton FC and Portsmouth FC. Professional Scouts are often in attendance of training and fixtures, working closely with our Academy Coaches monitoring players for progression into Pro Academies.
Sessions in Elite DC's are 1 hour 15 minutes, with in depth coaching on Ball Mastery, focusing on the newest moves and skills as well as the weekly topic. Our coaching is built solely around the individual, starting the session with 3 new Ball Mastery Moves each week before working with them on weekly topics such as Dribbling, Passing, 1on1 Dominance, Attacking & Defending. Each Academy Training Block runs for 6 weeks, with a fixtures evening against other centres on the final week of term at Brockenhurst College.
