The Albion Foundation

Girls Player Development Centre Open trial

The Albion Foundation aims to provide high quality coaching via structured sessions, whilst maintaining a positive learning environment for all players participating within our Girls Player Development Centres and Girls Player Development Academy. Our key aim is to develop the players technically, tactically, physically, psychologically and socially through sessions that mirror the West Bromwich Albion Regional Talent Club Curriculum.

Player Development Centres (PDC) are designed to offer players extra training throughout the week to provide players with a unique environment alongside their Grassroots club. The PDC is the first tier of training we offer where Players are guaranteed to participate in coaching sessions that will include unopposed and opposed technical work, game related practices, whilst applying these skills in small sided games.

Player Development Academies (PDA’s) are designed to accommodate the more elite players within our Player Development Centres (PDC’s) therefore they are invite only sessions and you are NOT able to just sign up or come along. These sessions specifically mirror the WBA RTC (U10s-U16’s) following the same topics, structure and core unopposed sessions. The Player Development Academy is a key link with West Bromwich Albion Regional Talent Club, identifying elite talent and progressing them through the club’s player pathway. We aim to provide players with a core skill set and capabilities to cope with the demands of Elite football.

Players that are showing outstanding ability or potential have the possibility to be referred to WBA RTC transition months. This will be at the lead coach’s discretion and parents will be advised of the next steps individually.

The training programme will start week commencing Monday 14th October. 

Players must bring something to drink,  shin pads and appropriate footwear and clothing for a 3G pitch 

PLEASE NOTE: Under 10's & 12's session is 5:00pm-6:00pm and Under 14's & 16's session is 6:00pm-7:00pm.
