FAB Football Development

Fab Football At Bisham Abbey

Located at Bisham Abbey, Fab Football Development is for boys and girls aged between 5 and 15.  FAB offers weekly coaching sessions run by experienced, highly qualified Football Association coaches.

First and foremost, these sessions are great fun! Our coaches work hard to ensure that all the children are engaged for the whole session and look forward to training in a top class environment.

Sessions are run in blocks of ten weeks and provide an excellent grounding in all aspects if the game, encouraging the players to experience different coaching topics within the ten week course. The coaches give verbal feedback on a weekly basis and at the end of a ten week course the players receive a written assessment of their time at FAB.

In addition to coaching boys and girls to play in outfield positions, FAB ACADEMY also offers expertise goal keeping coaching to improve the individual goalkeeper. These sessions run alongside the outfield sessions to allow the goalkeeper to take part in the group team play sessions.

If during the course the coaching team believe that the player has reached a level of skill and performance that is worth developing further, they will be invited to continue their training for a further 10 weeks. During this period players will get to play in competitive showcase games against professional academies where they can be scouted. Games played this season include: Barnet, Oxford United, Reading FC, Chelsea FC, Fulham FC, AFC Wimbledon, Brentford and many more. The opportunity is there for the players to progress.

This process continues and can potentially, given the time, training and effort, lead to the offer of a place within the full-time academy when they reach school leaving age in Year 11.

To gain a place at FAB you will need to have been invited by one of the coaching staff or attend one of our one-day courses, held regularly at Bisham Abbey during the school holidays.
