Crawley Town are staging trials for under-14s this Thursday (April 25) from 5-7pm at The People’s Pension Stadium on the 3G Ballcourt.
So what is the under-14s?
The under-14s is a part of our Development and Elite Centre, the training sessions are run on Wednesday 6-7pm (Development) and Thursday 6-7pm (Elite) as a part of our Player Progression Pathway.
These sessions run throughout term time for an hour every week, providing players with sessions to build on their skills and team understanding.
The under-14s do not take players away from their existing youth teams, but is an additional training session with representational fixtures during school holidays intended to help nurture the next generation of talented football players.
The coaches concentrate on improving technical and tactical skills, which helps to develop each player individually through their strengths and weaknesses to become better players and at the same time improve their game and team understanding.
The squads give the participants a chance to represent Crawley Town in fixtures against other EFL and Premier League sides.
Kayleigh Bowers, Head of Football & Sports Development, said: “Following on from the success of our recent under-16s trial, we are looking to strengthen our under-14s squad.
We are looking for skilful, resilient and talented players to join our squads. Our centres are a great opportunity for talent identification and are an important part of our player pathway.”
Progression from the under-14s is into the under-16s, who now train at Worth School.
Further progression is into the under-19s and our BTEC National Diploma in Sport programme. This is a 2-3 year course, allowing students the opportunity to gain qualifications whilst at the same time continuing to represent Crawley Town at under-19 level against EFL and Premier League teams.
For those who excel, the Crawley Town under-23s or even first team football are within range.
