Technical Development Pyramid

Sessions on a Sunday are referred to as the ‘Crown Player Select’ programme as Crown contribute towards the funding for every player involved. A pre-requisite of this programme requires a parental signatory of the Crown Player Select contract on behalf the player(s) involved.

Players are divided into two groups, Best of Best and Development, determined by the coaching staff, for a period of 12 weeks, following which an individual player assessment is carried out. Following this assessment, new groups are allocated based on the current progress and development of each player.
