Development Squad will resume on Saturday 17th September 2016 at the Club's home ground at Honey Lane, Otham. Development Squad is 10:30 to 12 mid-day.
The Development Squad is where players, coaches and supporters are introduced to the Club. Players can start from the age of 4. The Development Centre is managed by the Club's Youth Chairman & Club Welfare Officer, Colin Whitfield who is a UEFA qualified coach.
The purposes of the Development Centre are to introduce children to football and to develop their individual skills at the sport, this is done in a safe and friendly environment where there is an emphasis on having fun whilst players develop.
It is also where parents who are interested in getting in to coaching or management are identified and supported by the Club through their coaching qualification process. Coaches are DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked and it is mandatory that they undertake their Safeguarding Children and Emergency Aid training.
There are several other roles within the Football Club and the Development Centre is one location where information about vacancies within Club and indeed social or fund raising events can be obtained.
If you require further information or wish to sponsor an activity at the Development Centre then please contact Colin Whitfield on 07971 825992.
