ELITE AND DEVELOPMENT CENTRES

The Youth Development Pathway (U7s to U16s) at Crawley Town FC is designed to focus on the holistic development of the players within our centres. Emphasising the importance of building resilience, confidence and leadership skills, our players are role models whether they are on or off the football pitch.

 

All of our players are expected to continue training with their grassroots team and are provided extra support if necessary. Our centres are delivered once a week and there are additional training opportunities (Goalkeeper-Specific & Physical Performance) available to opt into. All of our players have the opportunity to be Ball Retrievers at Crawley Town FC matches.

Our Ideal Player Model & Core Values

We encourage players within the programme to embody the following ideals:

  • They are open minded and have a growth mindset

  • They have a hunger and desire for learning

  • They are motivated, and they want to work hard every day

  • They actively participate in 3-channel feedback: Player-Coach-Teammates

  • They embrace and are determined at being proficient in the technical basics of the game

  • We are Honest

  • We are Positive

  • We are Driven

  • We produce Quality

  • We are Respectful

 

We aspire to be the best we can in everything we do and take personal growth as a never ending development journey for us all. When we win we stay ‘Humble’. When we lose we stay ‘Dignified’.
