Boys Talent ID Centre

Boys Talent ID Centre

Our boys Talent ID centres are held across Oxfordshire and open to all boys between the ages of 4-11. The sessions are run in an academy based environment and aimed at developing players ability whilst pushing them on to the next level. Each Session will be arranged into syllabus weeks and designed to suit the needs of each player involved with a good balance of training and playing time. Each syllabus will be broken down into progressive sessions with the final session based around matches allowing the players to demonstrate what they have learnt. All players will also receive a feedback report at the end of each syllabus allowing them to understand what stage they are at with their development.

Pre Academy

Our boys and girls pre academy runs on a Friday evening at Oxford Spires Academy, this is an open development centre where players from the ages of 4, 5 & 6 have the chance to train in the same academy settings as our Talent Identification Centre. 

The pre academy follows the same academy philosophy with each syllabus being broken down into progressive sessions. Players training at our pre academy venue may get the chance to represent relative age groups within our Talent ID centre's fixture schedule, along with the possibility of progressing into the centre on a permanent basis.
