We are delighted to confirm we will be launching Player Development Centres in Kings Hill (West Malling) and New Eltham in early September
The Charlton Athletic Women's Player Development Programme (PDP) will form part of the development pathway to our first team and is open to girls aged 10 to 15. It will provide opportunities to progress to our FA Girls Regional Talent Club (RTC) which is now the only one in the south-east London and Kent area. Players attending our PDP will continue to play for their grassroots clubs, schools and district/county representative teams.
All coaching will be delivered by highly qualified coaches from Charlton Athletic Women's football club, including our RTC coaches and some of our Women's first team players. The sessions will be structured to help girls develop both their technical ability and tactical understanding within a safe and welcoming environment.
As well as coaching the girls will all receive an end of term assessment of their progress based on the FA's 4 corner model. There will also be an end of season PLayer Development Programme festival.
Additional players will have opportunities to attend our womens first team matches (once crowds are allowed again), act as mascots or flag bearers and purchase club merchandise at reduced cost.
Our centres will cater for players aged 10 but under 16 on 1st september 2020. For younger players (aged 8 and 9) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
