Bradford City Development Centre


The Development Centre

Welcome to the Bradford City Development Centre.


All Bradford City Academy Development Centre’s run to the same month to month syllabus looking to improve the players within the FA 4 Corner Player Development Plan. Each month will see different objectives and coaching factors introduced looking to improve players in each of the 4 corners.

Due to changes in our Development Centre structure ahead of the 2015-16 season our Woodhouse Grove Centre will now become our “Elite Centre” and be a platform for players to make the step up into the academy. For players at our Development Centre’s opportunities will always be available for players to attend the Elite Centre with the end goal of becoming an academy player.

All Bradford City Development Centre’s are invite only for players recommended by employees of the football club.

BCFC Academy Trials

Bradford City Academy are always looking to ‘identify talent and develop the future generation’.

 If you live in Yorkshire and believe you have the ambition to become a professional footballer, we are holding open trials in October 2016.
Our previous open trials have proved to be a great success and given many young footballers a outlook into the footballing world, with numerous players signed into our programme. Last year, two trialists joined our academy and over 150 have since attended our development centres. The trials are for boys between the ages of 5 to 15  at Woodhouse Grove School, Apperley Lane, Bradford BD10 0NR.

The trials will cost a fee of £10.00 per player. As there are limited places available, we would advise you to pay for the trial in advance as we cannot guarantee that there will be places for you to turn up and pay on the day.

Dates and times below, you can purchase a place for the trials on our online system here: Trial Booking

Woodhouse Grove Parking Training Nights & Weekends - Parents/Guardians Parking Illegally

To all Parents/Guardians

The Site have noticed Cars are parking on the double yellow lines during Evenings and Weekends.

We would like Everyone to use the Car Parking spaces on site or the over-spill area at the back of the Sports Centre.

From now on, if anyone is caught parking illegally, the next course of action will be to clamp vehicles parking on prohibited parking zones; such as access to the 4G pitch, disabled parking bays and of course double yellow lines.

Many thanks for your Co-operation.
