Our new England Academy is organised into 5 Levels, that group participants based on their ability and experience, with movement between levels determined by an individuals progress in a competitive, monthly, training environment.
Players are assessed at every training session, with records kept on development and progress monitored on a regular basis.
This allows for young players who may significantly improve and emerge over the course of a season and is also useful in cases of injury/illness or simply where it is felt necessary to deselect a player by placing them in a lower Level until they can regularly demonstrate they meet the criteria of a higher level of training. It is normal for children to move up or down levels through the course of a season.
Parents are welcome to contact the National Coaching Director to discuss their child’s progress or interest in attending.
