Arsenal Ladies Player Development Programme

Apply for Arsenal Ladies PDP Trials for the 2017/18 season.

The Arsenal Ladies Player Development Programme (PDP) aims to support girls in their journey of football development, inspiring them to be the best that they can be. The PDP sits as part of the Arsenal Ladies Player Pathway and links closely to the Regional Talent Club, where Arsenal Ladies hold a Tier 1 status.

Across the region Arsenal Ladies will deliver Player Development Programme sessions across a 90 minute radius of the Arsenal Training Ground in St Albans, Hertfordshire, providing an excellent environment for player development.

The player development programme will complement the football that your daughter already plays. We would encourage the PDP to be part of your daughter’s development journey, and for your daughter to play football in a variety of environments and settings. Across the season, the PDP will provide:

  • 90 minute coaching sessions from September to April
  • Age appropriate festivals against other players of a similar level
  • Parent Workshops
  • Player Workbooks & learning journals
  • Resources to support parents and children on their football development journey
  • Tickets to Arsenal Ladies games in the 2017/18 season
  • Training kit

At the PDP we will create an environment that gives every girl the opportunity to be the best that they can be, both on and off the field. Our delivery will support the development of every girl not just technically, tactically & physically, but also in terms of social and psychological development, building confidence, team work and creativity.

The PDP has limited spaces, and will be looking to hold trials on the 29th July and 5th August to recruit girls at the Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 age groups. We will be also holding a mop up trial later on in August, for anyone who cannot make the original dates.

To register your daughter for her trial place, please click on the link below and fill in the online form. The deadline to complete the form is on Friday 14th July.
