New Elite Player Development Centre: Essex

17 June 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 Elite Player Development Centre catering for the Essex region. This centre will become our first centre for the region, and our only Elite Centre in the County.

Taking place at the 3G facility at Hedingham School & Sixth Form, the new centre will begin this September for boys in the U11-U14 age groups for the new season.

The centre will involve weekly training for 2 hours a week over 36 weeks with a variety of fixture opportunities during half terms.

The primary focus of the Elite 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.
