Development Centres

* Please note that the Development Centre session is not currently running due to Covid-19 restrictions. Details of the session's return will be announced on PNE.Com and @pnecommunity on Twitter as soon as a return date has been confirmed.

Here at Preston North End we offer development centres which are fun, engaging, age-specific coaching for both boys and girls.

Sessions are hosted in hourly blocks for each year group with participants taught by our specialised coaches, all of whom are fully qualified and DBS checked.

Held at PNE’s Community Training Centre, PlayFootball in the sports hall, our development centres welcome all ages no matter what their ability. Players may be looking to develop their skills in a creative learning environment with a view to progressing into our Academy, or there may be others who are just starting out and looking to get a foothold in the game.

We ensure our sessions focus on not only developing players, but also maximise their enjoyment with our delivery being both fun and productive to all.

All sessions are based indoor (trainers only) at our community training centre PlayFootball, Tag Lane, PR2 3TX.
