Football development

programme

Lincoln City Foundation are relaunching their Football Development Programme for the 2020/21 season and places are going fast, so please book on to avoid any disappointment of missing out! Players aged from 7 to 16 years old are able to sign up for this exciting opportunity. Across the football development programme, we pride ourselves on providing opportunities, whilst creating an inclusive and positive learning environment so children can develop their game whilst having fun!

 

This is a great way to receive some extra training whilst playing grassroots football, or for some, an opportunity to start playing the game.

 

Our aim has always been to embed the correct techniques right from the outset, encouraging young footballers to play and develop naturally. We believe football should always be played with a smile and for those aspiring to excel in the game, we offer genuine pathway to excel.

COVID-19 Update

We are pleased to announce that our sessions have now resumed. All of our programmes are adhering to strict COVID-19 guidelines, to read more about our safety measure please click here.

We run a series of development centres across the region, using the Lincoln City coaching syllabus to develop individual skills and match awareness. Our Development Centres are open to all young footballers who want to learn and improve their skill level.

 

Our team of coaches will focus on a different theme each week, as we look to improve the technique and understanding of all positions in the game. These themes are then reinforced in small-sided matches.

 

The Development Centres follow the FA Four Corner Model of football: Technical, Physical, Social and Psychological. Open Development Centres also offer a first step on the Lincoln City FC player development pathway to our Advanced and Elite sessions. All players in our Development Centres will be continuously monitored for inclusion in our Advance and Elite Development programme.

Goal Keeper Sessions

Our goalkeeper programme returns this September but with some exciting changes. Goalkeeping is a specialised position and our programme delivery should replicate that! we are excited to put in place a new goalkeeper syllabus working with the Lincoln City Academy and highly experienced coaches from the senior set-up at Lincoln City FC to ensure the programme is beneficial to our goalkeepers.

The new programme gives our goalkeepers Monday as a set day for their programme with a specialised goalkeeper coach, but they also can attend other nights during the week. We are excited to keep progressing our programme and ensure that every player develops throughout our sessions.”

Goalkeeper sessions will take place alongside our advanced session in yarborough.

Address:

Active Nation Yarborough, Riseholme Road, Lincoln, LN1 3SP

Our Advanced and Elite Centres

Advanced centre

Our Advanced Centre is the next step along our development pathway and is invitation only. Our Advanced Centre offers a choice out of two different set evenings in which our talented players can attend and strive in an environment focussing on the individual player and their development. Our centres run with an aligned syllabus which is linked through to the Lincoln City Academy.

 

Alongside the training programme, there is also a games programme which aims to give our players fixtures in order to continue their development in-game scenarios representing the Foundation! To date, the fixture programme has included matches against the likes of Ipswich Town and Sunderland. For the 2020/21 season, we will be looking to build on our fixture programme and organise matches between other clubs within the English football pyramid.

 

The advanced Centre runs alongside the players grassroots commitments and allows them to attend extra sessions and fixtures as well as play for their own team.

 

Fee: £25 per month direct debit. Annual Membership Fee: £10

Elite Centre

Our Elite Development Centre is our top tier programme aiming to develop further gifted young footballers and aid them on their journey to participate in the sport at the highest level they can reach. Carrying with it a higher expectation of performance our coaching syllabus reimburses this with a set syllabus in cohesion with the Lincoln City Academy.

 

We will always strive to ensure enjoyment through our sessions but also provide the best environment for players to further develop, and opportunities if players show a clear gifted talent to progress further into our club structure.

 

Our Elite sessions are on Friday evening along with a structured games programme similar to the advanced centre's games programme, which still allows players to play grassroots football alongside the programme.

 

Fee: £25 per month direct debit. Annual Membership Fee: £10
