Development Centres

& Elite Centre...

  • About Development Centres

    The development centres are run by fully FA qualified coaches, with all aspects of the game being covered with the emphasis on teamwork, technique and enjoyment! Along with this we also have fully qualified goalkeeping coaches at our selected venues, which also cover all aspects of goalkeeping.


    Birmingham City Community Trust work in partnership with the Birmingham City Football Club Academy. Any player that shows promise during their time on the development centres may be invited to the Birmingham City Football Club academy or our Elite Development Centre. Not only do we have strong links with our own club's Academy, players from Birmingham City Development Centres have gone onto to represent Derby County FC, Walsall FC, Bristol Rovers, Coventry City FC, West Bromwich Albion, Burton Albion and a variety of County / District teams in the past.


    We have also sent a number of players in to on our very own Football & Education Program for 16 – 18 year olds and any player that shows promise may be invited into Birmingham City Football Club for a trial on the College Education Program.

    Being a part of the BCFC Community Trust Development Centres can open a wide range of opportunities our staff work hard and are always on the look out for new talent on our football camps and other programs we run to recruit players along with scouting Saturday and Sunday league teams


    Best of all, anyone wanting to improve their football skills can come along.

  • About Elite Centre

    Birmingham City Football Club Community Trust has launched its brand new structure and programme. The idea behind the programme is to provide players with the opportunity to develop technically, athletically and ethically in a professional environment.

    We will be running age groups from U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U13 & U14's that will be part of a team and play games against other Elite centres such as Coventry, Walsall , West Brom and Cardiff.


    If you think you have got what it takes you progress onto the Elite Centre register for a trial on one of our Development Centres now!
