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 attend these sessions to develop and enhance their skills individually, with our most detailed and advanced coaching. Players within our Elite Development Centre are eligible for our Player Showcase fixtures with AFC Bournemouth, Southampton FC & other Pro Academies. Senior Recruitment Staff often attend these sessions to monitor players throughout the programme, giving our players the best exposure of being seen by Professional Football Academies.
Our Masterclass Sessions within our 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 player, starting the session with exclusive Aerial Control & Ball Mastery Moves followed by a Masterclass session on key topics on individual player development such as Dribbling, Passing, 1on1 Dominance, Attacking & Defending. Each Academy Training Block runs for 6 weeks in line with the school term.
