Football Development

Add a title

The Trust is able to offer Football Development sessions for both existing and new players providing a safe and enjoyable session for boys and girls to develop their football skills.

The aim of these sessions is to provide safe and enjoyable football for those starting to get into the game or needing a bit of extra support. The project is strategically targeting children aged 18 months – 5 years, and 6 – 10 years old to engage them in football activities.

Sessions We Offer

Mini Shakers

These sessions are designed to support and develop participants who are just getting into football.

Does your son/daughter love football? Come & learn how to play in an age-appropriate environment, develop new skills, make friends & have fun.

Our development sessions are run by fully qualified football coaches from our Community Charted Club - Bury FC Boys and Girls. These staff also specialise in developing the fundamental skills your child needs not only for football but also for general growth and development.

These sessions take place at Bury FC Stadium, Gigg Lane, Bury, BL9 9HR.

Cost: £5 per week or £25 per 6-week block booking

Age Group:
18 month - 2.5 years old : Sundays 09:00am-09:45am
2.5 - 3.5 years old : Sundays 09:50am-10:35am
3.5 - 5 years old : Sundays 10:40am-11:25am

Development Sessions

We have two development sessions we run on a weekly baise one aim at girls development through the FA Wildcats programme and the other aimed at boys development.

These sessions are designed to support and develop participants who are just getting into football or who are wanted to improve their skills ready to join team football.

We believe these sessions are the key stepping stone that is sometimes missed between schools and clubs.

All our coaches are Level 2 qualified and have undertaken specific training for foundation phase football. We can also offer all attending players pathways into teams within grassroots.

Our development centre is currently delivered at The Football Centre (Goshen)
