We have 10 PDC locations spread out across the whole East Riding of Yorkshire region, each PDC is full of highly qualified football coaches, scouts and support staff on hand to assist & aid your child’s football development through our Elite Football Pathway Program.

Our coaches and scouts are constantly reviewing the talent on show each weekend at all age groups, once your child has been selected to be part of the East Riding Football PDC our work begins to develop skills, techniques, fitness, attitude, mindset, behaviour and mentality both on and off the pitch. Working with you as parents to monitor behaviour at home, your child’s school work to focus them on education and reaching targeted grades and finally to further develop their overall football ability with our weekly thorough and enhanced coaching development sessions.

The eventual end goal for your child is a pathway onto our full time football and education program for ages 16-18 years.
