STFITC deliver to over 2500 participants every week on a variety of different programmes
Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust have organised Development Courses for 5-15 year olds since 1991. The Trust runs courses predominantly in Swindon but also in neighbouring towns such as Wantage, Lambourn, Marlborough, Chippenham, Beversbrook, Bradford upon Avon and Ashton Keynes.
The weeks enable children to make new friends, develop their skills and techniques whilst engaging within a fun and safe environment. There are opportunities to win prizes and everyone goes away with a goody bag presented on the third day.
The weeks are run over three to four days, with the main course in operation on the first three days and the optional day on the fourth. There are three themes to the Development Weeks; Mainstream, Goalkeepers only and Girls only weeks.
STFiTC also offer children the chance to take part inside the STFC Inflatable arena and also provide the chance for youngsters to take a tour of the County Ground stadium.
These Development Weeks enable staff, coaches and scouts to recognise and identify local talent to enable youngsters to progress onto the Centre of Excellence Programme.
