At Elite we provide coaching that complements grassroots football.

We have a passion for learning and development and wish to create the same high quality, professional environment for both boys and girls. We provide Yorkshire’s ONLY professional coaching centre that complements grassroots coaching and is open to all young players without invitation.

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 ETD do not have to commit to competing for Elite and can share the benefits of weekly coaching, learning and education.
