Nuturing Talent - the Watford Way

The aim of the Player Development Centres is to provide a professional environment in which to develop skills and techniques. 

The Player Development Centres cater for talented young players who have attended Trust projects and were identified by the coaches as well as those who have been invited following a succesful trial. Once at the centre players work to a syllabus designed to develop all aspects of their game. 
The PDC’s work closely with the Watford FC Academy and talented players may earn the opportunity to play Academy football.
