Development Centres

Development Centres
We are able to offer Football Development sessions providing a safe and enjoyable session for boys and girls to develop their football skills.

What We Offer
The aim of these sessions are to provide safe and enjoyable football for those starting to get into the game. The project is strategically targeting children aged 18 months – 5 years, 6 – 10 years old and females 11+ to engage them in football activities. 

To achieve this we currently provide three main types of development sessions to the community:

Mini Shakers
These sessions are designed to support and develop participants who are just getting into football. Does your son/daughter love football? Come & learn how to play in an age appropriate environment, develop new skills, make friends & have fun. Our development sessions are run by fully qualified football coaches from our Community Charted Club - Bury FC Boys and Girls. These staff also specialise in developing the fundamental skills your child needs not only for football but also general growth and development.
