Player Development Centres

Player Development Centres (PDCs) which link in to and feeds the Elite Player Development Centre offers players and goalkeepers the chance to receive quality technical coaching sessions at venues situated in key areas across Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. We have venues in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Beccles, Sudbury, East Bergholt, Eye and Bottisham.

Ipswich Town PDCs are weekly coaching sessions for children aged 6 to 12, who love to play football regularly. Sessions are available for both boys and girls who may play for a club or school, but we also welcome beginners who have never played before.

Sessions offer technical coaching, skills development and allow the opportunity for participants to practice in small-sided matches. Our trained coaches have the experience and understanding to cater for the needs of the group and ensure that children are happy and developing their skills, while following a structured ITFC syllabus.

More information:

Our Player Development Centres have seen a significant number of players invited to progress through our Player Pathway into our Elite Player Development Centres. The PDCs have provided them with the foundation to progress as players and the potential to achieve more.

Full Season: 28 weeks – £105.00

Half Season: 14 weeks – £52.50
