The Advanced Development Centre is a select training programme open to talented players who want to play at a level higher than local grassroots.

This programme is training only and provides a limited games programme with up to 5 games per year. Players do not need to leave grassroots clubs and can dual sign.At Elite we have a passion for learning and development and wish to create the same high quality, professional environment for both boys and girls.

We understand that player development is a long term process and do not cater simply for early developers and allow access to our high level professional coaching to all players. Players in the ADC do not have to commit to competing for Elite and can share the benefits of weekly coaching, learning and education.
Emerging Talent Identification at Elite is done by assessment of a players current performance and future potential based on 4 key qualities
