Elite Development Centre returns

27 August 2013

City's youth department can confirm that the club's Elite Development Centre is scheduled to return early next month.


The club's Elite Development Centre programme gives youngsters in the local area the opportunity to learn and play under the stewardship of City coaches, all of whom are trained to UEFA Academy standard.


Any juniors who impress City's coaches during the sessions could also find themselves with the opportunity to join the Bantams' academy as a player. Last season ten kids progressed through to the club's youth academy from the Elite Development Centre programme.


The exact return date for this season's Elite Development Centre coaching sessions is Friday 6 September 2013.

Places in one of the Elite Development Centre sessions are open to boys from under 7 to under 12 age groups. Sessions are scheduled to take place between 5:00pm and 7:00pm.

The sessions will take place at Woodhouse Grove School (BD10 0NR) - the training venue for City's first-team and academy. 

The Elite Development Centre programme will be run by City coaches Louis Horne and Malcolm Butterfield.
