Development Programme

Please contact our Football Development officer Niall Nicolson if you feel you have a child that has potential to trial for any of our squads.

2020 Development Centres

A crucial first step on the Scottish FA's Performance Pathway, widening the pool of talented male and female players at the base of the Performance Pyramid.

The programme is designed to be aspirational and to help players in primary five, six and seven to achieve their full potential.

The Centre’s are the link between the grassroots game and elite performance.

Along with professional clubs, players are selected from across the non-professional game to take part in weekly specialised training sessions delivered by licensed coaches. Players are selected through a trial process.

Skills Centre

Our Skills Centre programme is aimed at the P5–P7 age group and focused on the delivery of a creative player curriculum to equip our talented athletes with confidence in 1v1 situations.

S1/S2 Development Academy

Continuing from the Skill Centre, coaches deliver a set programme focused on the delivery of a creative player curriculum to equip our talented athletes with confidence in 1v1 situations.
