Elite Player Development Centre football coaching in Boston

The Elite Player Development Centre for boys and girls is an important part of our elite football pathway and a core element to help develop young players, their skills and individual technical ability and tactical knowledge.

Our elite Player Development Centre provide boys and girls in the Under 11 to Under 13 age groups the opportunity to develop and improve their individual technical ability and tactical knowledge of the game within the four corners linked with the FA’s development model. The specialist coaching sessions are based around professional standards off the pitch, whilst also developing with the ball on the pitch.

This programme is something unique to the Boston area and the sessions will give local boys and girls the opportunity to experience high quality coaching once a week but at the same time still allowing them to play for their grassroots clubs.

The overall aim is to develop the players as individuals. Boston United work hard to improve the standard of local football and the PDC is the initial step on to our elite pathway, giving young players the opportunity to progress in to Boston United’s elite Girls Regional Talent Club, Centre of  Excellence, Youth Team and beyond!

The sessions run on a Friday evening at Peter Paine Sports Centre, Boston on the astro turf. The elite PDC costs £20 per month and this can be paid by standing order (which must be set up ready to pay from the start of the programme).

Under 8 to Under-10                5.30pm to 6.30pm at Peter Paine Astroturf
Under-11 to Under-13              6.30pm-7.30pm at Peter Paine Astroturf

You will be required to purchase a Boston United training t-shirt from Kit Locker (Nike Park VI Short Sleeve Shirt). The players must also wear black shorts and socks. You do have an option to order a full black training kit but is not compulsory (Nike Park II Knit Short and Nike Classic II Sock on Kit Locker). All the kit can be found online here

In return for the costs associated to attend these sessions, children will be guaranteed:

  • A Coaching programme led by Martyn Bunce, Head of Youth at Boston United

  • Lifelong learning sessions
  • PDC syllabus designed to develop all aspects of their game linked with the Boston United Centre of Excellence and Girls RTC
  • FA licensed coaches will deliver a high standard of coaching
