Development Academy 5-8 August Joining Instructions

Information for everyone enrolled on Ossett Town Juniors’ August football development academy – Monday 5th to Thursday 8th August.

The soccer school is taking place at Horbury High School, Wakefield Road, Horbury, Wakefield, WF4 5HE.  Please drop your child off at Horbury school between 9:00am and 9:30am each day – please ensure you sign in on arrival.   All children should be collected at 3:15pm to 3:30pm prompt at the end of the day.  You can arrive earlier if you wish to watch the sessions/games in action.

We have use of the indoor school halls and the outside astro-turf (Multi Use Game Area) – so plenty of room and flexibility dependent upon the weather.

Players will need shin-pads and trainers – if players have two pairs of trainers (one for inside use and one for outside use) that would be helpful, but not essential.

In terms of dress, please dress in appropriate football kit and layers with sweatshirt, rain jacket etc.  Might also be worth packing an extra shirt and jumper just in case.  Also bring a towel in case players get wet (i.e. if it rain’s – but let’s hope not).

Please bring plenty to drink – at least 3 drinks for the day.  There are facilities to replenish water bottles if needed.

Please bring a packed lunch with sufficient food for the day – it will be a very active day and the players will be hungry by lunch-time.

We have a very interesting and varied programme set up for the players.

Players will be grouped into teams.   Teams will be picked during the first day to ensure a good mix of abilities, ages etc.  Each team will have a colour – for Wednesday to Friday it would be good if the players could be dressed (or at least their shirt/top) in their team colour. We will have bibs for those who need them.

The technical sessions, small sided games and world cup games will be arranged around ages.
