The million-pound West Cornwall Football Development Centre was established at Cornwall College Camborne to be a specialist centre for football for the local community.
The centre has a close working partnership with the Cornwall County FA, and acts as a Regional Development Centre for the West of Cornwall.
The concept of the centre is to bring together players, students, volunteers, coaches, referees, expert support personnel and administrators all under one roof. As a result the WCFDC is widely recognised as a leader in the delivery of football programmes, services and expertise in Cornwall.
- Football holiday courses
- After school clubs (Under 13s – Under 16s)
- Player development programmes (Under 8s – Under 12s)
- FA coaching sessions.
Please be aware that the courses are of a practical nature so it is recommended that all players attending the courses require a reasonable level of fitness. On all levels of the FA Coaching Qualifications, there are practical and theory sessions, post course tasks and a final assessment.
These popular courses cater for girls and boys between 4 and 14 years of age and are run in most holiday periods (Easter/ Summer/ Half-Term Breaks). Emphasis is firmly on fun and enjoyment. The Cornwall College Football Development Centre is also the first centre in Cornwall to have achieved the FA Charter Standards for excellence in delivering Holiday Courses.
