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-13 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 our Academy Fixtures with AFC Bournemouth Academy, in various formats such as 5v5/7v7/9v9/Futsal. Senior Staff at AFC Bournemouth will attend these sessions once a term to monitor players throughout the programme, giving our players the best exposure of being seen by Academy Recruitment Staff at AFC Bournemouth.
Sessions in Elite DC's are 1 hour 10 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.
