Redhill - Player Development Centre (ages 9-12)

The Albion Foundation aims to provide high quality and structured coaching sessions, whilst maintaining a positive learning environment. Our player pathway caters for children of all abilities through our Player Development Centres or our Player Development Academies within the Black Country, Walsall, Dudley or Worcestershire. The key aim of our sessions are to develop players’ core technical ability as well as their tactical understanding. All sessions delivered are working towards the West Bromwich Albion FC Curriculum.  

Player Development Centres provide players with a potential entry into elite and professional football environments, as well as an exit route for those children not ready for the elite set up. The Player Development Academy has a key link with the West Bromwich Albion FC Academy, helping to identify those that are talented and supporting their progress through the club’s player pathway.  

All sessions are delivered by FA/UEFA qualified coaches, that are first aid and DBS checked. Children MUST attend wearing shin pads, correct footwear (email coach if unsure) and a soft drink. Players should register with the ‘lead coach’ on the evening as they arrive and will also need to be collected at the end of every session. No child will be allowed to leave until the designated parent has been seen.
