Access to the Youth Academy via referral from the Lincoln City Football Development Programme, which offers coaching from under 4-16yrs).
The programme offers Football Development training opportunities for all local children who are keen to learn and develop as players in a professional youth development training environment.
The Open Development Centres also act as the first step on to the Lincoln City FC player development pathway which offers a route in to the clubs Advanced Development Centres, Elite Development Squads and the clubs Academy for those players who develop and constantly improve as players.
Whilst Academy Football is a dream of many young players we are very keen as a club to offer appropriate development opportunities to all players where ever they are currently at on their playing journey as we are very aware all players develop technically, physically, socially and psychologically at different times and we are very keen to support all players in maximising their potential as players over the long term.
