Who would benefit from the Talent Centre?
– Professional academy players who want added training.
– Academy development players who need help progressing.
– Players from grassroots junior football clubs who are looking for an advanced level of coaching.
– Players who looking for an opportunity to play at a higher level.

What is the games programme?

Alongside our coaching, our Talent Centre will have a regular games programme against professional academies, development squads and local junior teams to provide a chance to showcase their developments made through our training.

Do I need to purchase a kit?

Calcio Talent Centre wants players to feel part of a unique community of players and as such, we ask everyone to purchase our Calcio match day and training kit as standard. A deal will be made with kit developers to ensure the cost is as low as possible. 

Will my player get scouted? 

We have the ability to arrange friendlies with clubs that players will aspire to play for and will do as often as we can. However, nobody can guarantee that a player will be scouted or chosen for a professional club. Hard work, dedication and patience is key.

My child has not been selected for the squads, what now?

We are in the process of forming our development centre training. This is where players who were unsuccessful in their trials can continue to develop with us. We will keep a focus on these players and chances will arise for them to look to step up to our Talent Centre sides.

Is there a cost attached?

Yes, we use top facilities, employ experienced, quality coaches, provide detailed reviews and feedback termly. We have 90 minutes of training per week, use and provide match days for Talent Centre players. 

We also provide added strength and conditioning training, speed and performance training through external providers. 
This all comes to a monthly cost of £48, payable over 11 months. This comes to less than £8 per hour of coaching time

Players who are asked to play with our development centre squads will train alongside our Talent Centre squads per week. Reviews and support. Plus a periodic games programme to aid development. This comes to £38 per month.
