The Rugby Development Centre was first established in 2004. It caters for players aged 5 to13 and the sessions take place at Rugby School. The sessions are on grass during the better weather and lighter evenings and on the astro turf for the remainder of the season. This provides an excellent balance for the players as the different surfaces provide different challenges and require different types of skills.
The facilities at Rugby School are first class and provide all the needs for us to develop young footballers.
The coaching staff at this centre are led by Scott Baines, FDS-West Brom partner (for further information please see Staff section on the website).
