Football Development Schools Professional Days

Professional days are specialist Development Days open to all Development Centre players and Shadow Squad players.  The focus is on aspects including

  • Diet and Nutrition
  • Sleep and Rest
  • Speed Agility Quickness (SAQ)
  • Homework – professional standards
  • Match Play – how young professional players play with and without the ball
  • Crossing and Finishing
  • Agility Testing – the most important quality of a footballer

The day is based around treating the players as young professionals and helping to educate them on how to reach their potential – these will take place on dedicated dates or at pre season days.
