Brentford FC – Football Programmes
Football Development Centre
Our Football Development Centre (FDC) offers talented young players the opportunity to receive high-quality coaching – enhancing their skills in a player-centred environment.
With specialist football coaching spanning 18 years, FDC includes evening sessions and a structured match programme against other sports trusts such as Coventry City, Ipswich Town, MK Dons, Oxford United, Wycombe Wanderers and many more.
We hold football trials for our Football Development Centre in October and April.
With the FA committed to doubling female participation by 2020, we have been running a successful girls’ football programme for the past 5 years. So far, the Trust has engaged with more than 1,000 girls through the initiative.
Our girls’ football programmes include the Wildcats programme (in partnership with the FA) and our girls’ Football Development Centre.
With over 1.5m adults playing small sided football every week and with 30,000 teams playing in organised and competitive small sided leagues, Futsal is increasingly becoming an integral part of the football family.
We run a hugely popular Futsal programme at Osterley Sports Centre and Cranford Community College’s Indoor Sports Centre on Tuesday and Friday evenings (term time only).
Our Soccer Schools is an exciting way of learning technical football skills in a safe and fun environment. Plus, our Soccer School sessions is an important gateway into our Football Development Centre. We run weekly sessions and holiday sessions at Goals Soccer Centre in Osterley.
