Development group is created for children whose abilities and understanding of the game are not quite at the level of squads selected for league & cup games. The aim is to work with these children on variety of techniques and skills, encourage them to get better and break into the match day league squads. All children will get equal opportunities based on their attendance, effort and learning progress. Development groups are also involved in fixtures/games organised by the coach currently looking after the group. These could be games at home or away against other development squads from CCJFL league clubs or clubs nearby.
Our current Development Group setup has limited spaces and is based on maximum 16 children per coach. Sessions run from 9.30am to 10.30am every Saturday during School Term time at Court Park, Hillingdon, UB10 9NT. All children must wear football boots and shin pads. Clothes worn are usually determined by weather conditions, but casual sports clothing is best (tracksuit bottoms or sport shorts and t-shirts or sport tops). Once child is part of Legacy Football Club for a minimum of one school half term (usually 6 weeks), they qualify for a football kit supplied by one of our sponsors (subject to availability). As an alternative, Legacy FC full kits or individual pieces of clothing can be purchased through our Club Shop. We also encourage all parents to make sure they bring water to make sure child is hydrated during/after the session.
