Bradford City Pre-Academy Centre

Welcome to Bradford City’s Pre-Academy Centre at Woodhouse Grove. Due to restructuring, the Woodhouse Grove Centre has now become our “Pre-Academy”.

The centre is an excellent place for those “Elite” boys to improve and develop their ability with opportunities for players to make the step up into the academy at U9s when registrations can take place with the Football League and for the younger players to develop relationships with fellow players whilst getting a feel for the environment and also getting to know the coaches, all of whom work within the academy.

Our Woodhouse Grove Elite Development Centre sees our U7-U8s train on the full-size 4g pitches. With Woodhouse Grove being the home of our First Team and academy the facilities are excellent and well maintained and it’s a fantastic environment for young players to learn and develop looking to make the step up into the academy.

Elite Centre is free of cost.
Refreshments such as snacks tea/coffee will be available to buy in the academy office.

When turning into the school take the lade between the grass pitches so the changing rooms are on your right. As you approach the floodlit Astroturf bend round to your left and there is ample car parking space available either directly in front of the school or in the car park to the right.
