The Bedfordshire FA Advanced Coaching Centre forms part of this new talent pathway into the Eastern Region Excellence Camps and the England Squads. This new pathway replaces the old PDC / Centre of Excellence structure.
The centre allows talented players to improve their skills through quality coaching run by The Bedfordshire FA and licensed by The FA. Each player benefits from 29 weeks of coaching at Wixams Football Centre on Monday Nights mixed with competitive fixtures representing their area against other regional centres and/or appropriately selected teams.
