Development Groups

Development Groups

An invite only opportunity. Players that show a talent in football and apply themselves in the correct manner will be invited to join. MPYFC managers will be contacted and communication is strictly through them for all players invited to attend.

What does the Development Group aim to achieve for my child?

The academy aims to give your child the training techniques, the physical strength and the correct discipline to help your child progress further in football. It also aims to help bridge the gap between grassroots football and semi-Professional football.

Who will they be training alongside and who will the coaches be?

The academy currently has two developmental groups U16 and U13 which can lead into U18 and U19 teams. The aim is to eventually have U12, U14, U16 development groups. The program is over seen by the Senior club and sessions are taken by FA and UEFA qualified coaches.

How will their progress be monitored and what feedback will they/we get

Players progression will be overseen by the academy manager and Individual Action Plans will be developed to help your child progress.

What is the cost and when/where do they train?

The cost of the academy is currently £130 per term which last 10 weeks and then the cost for the kit which is an additional one-off payment of £70. The development groups train on Saturday mornings from 9.30 to 12:00pm at our Training ground at Imber Court. In inclement weather training takes place at Goals in New Malden.
