What does joining a Bradford City Development Centre offer to your child?

  1. Opportunity. An opportunity for your child to develop as a footballer, with a pathway into the academy, while continuing to train and play with their grassroots club.
  2. Challenge. In training, we will challenge them to work hard and to be the best they can be.
  3. Games. Opportunity to participate in a games programme against other development centres and bi-annually against the academy players.

The Bradford City development centres work with a well-structured syllabus and look to improve players in numerous areas. We place a big emphasis on 

  • Players been brave on the ball
  • Competitive off the ball
  • Humble in all they do
  • Our key focus is for players to improve in 1v1 Duels
