All players will be coached to a very high standard by our FA qualified coaches, who are all CRB checked. Gillingham Football Club have 6 successful Development Centres currently running in Ashford, Canterbury, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway and Sittingbourne.
These centres are designed to provide the Academy in Canterbury with the new Under-9 age group. The Academy run's from Under 9 - Under 16, where at U16's decisions are made on players becoming part of our full time scholarship programme.
Although the main aim is to recruit players for our Academy, during their time at our Development Centres boys will still remain registered and can play with their local teams. We fully understand the importance of grassroots football and are keen to help develop players for the future whether they stay on with their local club or progress into the Academy.
