Emerging Talent Centres

Trials under way for 7-16 year olds

8 August 2018

Oxford United in the Community are now holding trials for Boys and Girls Emerging Talent Centre.

OUitC’s Emerging Talent scheme offers under 7s to under 16s an opportunity to train in a team environment, improving both individual ability and technical and tactical knowledge of the game.
The scheme will recruit the most talented players within the Oxfordshire area who are not currently at any academy.

The programme comprises:
• 36-week term-time training programme
• Games programme during school half terms vs other professional clubs’ development centres including Northampton Town, Luton Town, MK Dons, Brentford, Swindon Town and more;
• Six-weekly coaching syllabuses focusing on specific aspects of the game;
• Feedback and monitoring reports after each twelve-week block of coaching;
• End-of-year report for each player;
• Coaching delivered by FA-qualified coaches at level 2 (minimum) and level 3 standard;
• End-of-season summer tournament;
• The chance to represent OUFC.
Players can participate in the programme while continuing to play for their grassroots clubs.
Players progressing well in the programme may be recommended to the OUFC Academy (Boys) and Regional Talent Centre (Girls), though attendance does not guarantee a trial.
