Children will be coached by FA and UEFA licenced coaches with vast and different areas of expertise.

Player Pathway Week

Our Player Development Centre Pathway Week is for children currently in our Tier 1-3 Player Development Centre structure. Here, there will be a focus on honing and fine-tuning the player development taking place at our Centres. A close link to the Academy Philosophy will structure sessions and players will have an extra chance to impress the coaches in order to be considered for movement into a different tier.

Detailed Player feedback will be given to children who attend all 5 days in order to support your child’s development through our tier system and towards the academy’s recruitment structure.

Trial Day

Have you got what it takes to join a Palace for Life development centre or secure a trial for the academy? The Palace for Life trial offers you an opportunity to play in front of Palace for Life Coaches, in order to see if your son can be invited to a Palace for Life Development Centre. Our Development Centres have a pathway into the Crystal Palace Academy. Academy coaches and academy scouts will also be attending the sessions to see if any of the players can make the leap straight into the boy’s academy!
