BCFC

We are delighted to announce the recommencement of Birmingham City FC Community Trust’s weekly Football Development Scheme held at venues in Birmingham and Solihull.

Starting from 16 September, boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 16 will have access to quality sessions on Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.

Birmingham City are offering a mixed boys and girls session on Thursday nights for 5 to 11 year olds from 7-8pm.

On Fridays we have a variety of one hour sessions for boys and girls between 7 and 16 years old between the hours of 7 and 9pm. We will also offer specialist goalkeeper training at some sessions on Friday night.

On Saturday mornings between 9 and 10am we will host a Mini Kickers Session for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 9 years old.

The Development Centres are weekly sessions run by FA qualified Blues coaches and provide a high-quality coaching environment for young players looking to develop their skills and techniques in a fun and encouraging learning environment.

The full programme of sessions will cover a variety of age specific topics and will be delivered through technical, functional and game related practices that rotate through each half-term.

As part of the scheme, players who show promising potential will have the opportunity to progress through the player development pathways at Birmingham City Football Club. This includes BCLFC’s Regional Talent Club for girls and the BCFC Academy for the boys.

Prizes and rewards for development will be given throughout the programme to encourage progression and there will also be discounted tickets on selected BCFC fixtures at St. Andrew’s.

If you would like to book a place on the course or find out more information please contact the ticket office on 0121 772 0101 option two, email: community@bcfc.com or click here.
