Development Centres:

What are they? Weekly hourly training sessions held at four local venues with a different programme for all ages and abilities. There is something for everyone to enjoy to with a girls only session and a goalkeeper session. Sessions are designed for mixed ability groups, skills based training and small sided games, all devised and delivered by FA qualified coaches.

Holiday Football Camps:

Want to play football, learn skills and meet new people? You can get involved with a varied, fun and football focused itinerary which includes skills coaching, football-based activities and games. Camps are held during school holidays (excluding bank holidays). Contact Craig Gill on or 0121 202 5210 to find out where your local camp is taking place!


Junior Blues Football Teams:

Want to take your first step in becoming a professional footballer at Blues? All teams play in the JPL League, train twice weekly and play matches on a Saturday morning. There is a team at each age group from U12s-U16s. However, it is an invite only programme with players selected following a trial. Trials take place during pre-season and mid-season in some cases. 

Where can you find the teams? Train and play homes matches at Hodge Hill College and CTC Kingshurst.


After School Clubs:

Clubs are run in partnership with local schools and open to any school who wishes to take part and give their students the opportunity to play football.  Depending on class size and price per head, we can provide a coach service to make it even more convenient. Please contact Craig Gill on or 0121 202 5210 for more information.
