Easter Holiday

We shall only be having a one week break from training in the Easter Holidays rather than the normal two week break, this along with training through the February half term, makes up for the sessions cancelled with the horrific weather earlier in the year.

Therefore we shall be training on the 4th April and the 11th April.

We shall not be training on the 18th April and we shall return to training on the 25th April.

Best Wishes,




Keele 2014

Our Goal as an Academy


Academy Development Centre Limited is an independent football academy to give young schoolboy players from 6 to 16 years of age who are above average ability, the opportunity to develop as both an individual and a team player within a structured unit.

The Academy Development Centre is run independently to Torquay United Football Club, with the Academy Development Centre providing an environment in which players can develop through following a Comprehensive Coaching Syllabus.

The Academy aims to bridge the gap between grassroots football and the Academy at Torquay United.

In addition to the coaching programme, we offer all of our talented players the opportunity to perform in a games programme which takes place predominantly on midweek evenings. We organise fixtures to allow our players the opportunity to translate technical skills acquired through the delivery of the coaching syllabus and put this into practice within the games programme.

By developing good relationships with both local Clubs and local leagues within the area, coupled with the fact that players of the Academy Development Centre can continue to play for their local grassroots Club while they attend the programme has proved a successful formula

Over the past 5 seasons, over 80 players have signed schoolboy contract forms with Torquay United’s Academy.
