New Player Development Centre: Hertfordshire

24 February 2021

As part of our ongoing development of football at the Norwich City FC RDP, we will be providing further opportunities for boys through our invitation only programmes with the launch of a brand new outfield Player Development Centre in Hertfordshire.

Taking place at the state of the art 3G facilities at Ware Football Club, the new centre will begin this April for boys currently in the U10-U13 age groups.

The centre will involve weekly training for 1.5 hours a week with a fixture opportunity during the Whitsun half term.

Looking ahead to September 2021, the centre will increase to deliver to the U9-U14 age groups with 32 weeks of training and fixture opportunities during the half term holidays.

The primary focus of the PDC at Norwich City FC is to play a key role in identifying and supporting the development of gifted and talented boys, as well as supplementing their grassroots football.

As part of the package, the programme will also receive opportunities for fixtures, development camp days, feedback reports, tours, individual progression and future pathways in both a football and educational settings.

Please note: These centres do not take children away from continuing to play grassroots football with their Clubs.

We will be running open trials in preparation for the beginning of the new centre and you can find the details below.
