2. North Region Weekly Training
We use two venues to support players on a weekly basis and provide training for players in the North West (Bolton Arena) and North East (John Charles Stadium, Leeds). The autumn term of training will finish just before Easter and will continue again starting mid-April.
3. CPD Workshops
We provide opportunities for coaches to attend workshops and gain new ideas and education in the following ways:-
- CPD workshops in conjunction with Regional Training Camps. After the very successful workshops held in March on 'Squad training principles' we are looking to hold our next workshop in either July or September of this year. The topic will be developing 'resilience' in our young players. The final date will be confirmed in due course.
- Grant Funded Centre workshops. These workshops are currently being delivered by the North Team within programme development workshops for centre coaches on a variety of topics. The next workshop will be based around 'Under 14 serving' competencies. The timeline for these workshops will be May/June and November of each year.
4. Tournament opportunities.
