Our Darlington academy brings together players who have consistently demonstrated the right level of capability to benefit from a more advanced level of coaching.
The focus is the progression of technical ability alongside an improved reading and understanding of the game. Coaching techniques are structured and designed specifically to enable a player to grow in stature become comfortable and more confident in possession alongside being able to make the right decisions when the situation arises.These players show good levels of physical fitness and concentration and are technically competent and efficient.
During the structured programme coaches are constantly looking to identify players who have progressed sufficiently to move into the next level of Premier Player.This could be achieved through the technical execution of exercises during training sessions, or through individual performances during scheduled fixtures against external sides. Everyone will get the opportunity to demonstrate their personal progress, and it is this coupled with attitude and all round behaviour which are the factors considered when looking to move players into the next tier.
