Derby County Football Club Women

Sign Up for DCFCW Academy Development Days

Derby County Women Academy are pleased to announce their Development Days for the upcoming 2021/22 season which will be held at Derby County FC’s Training Ground at Moor Farm in July.

Last year’s Development Days were postponed due to the Covid19 Pandemic but with restrictions easing, the club has secured access to the Rams state of the art training facility with Academy Director Dave Cholerton excited at their return this summer.

Cholerton said “The last 12 months have been pretty awful for grassroots football but the light is certainly shining brightly at the end of the tunnel and we are hopeful of a normal 2021/22 season with the Developemnt Days, the first sign of normalcy.

“Last year’s event was postponed and we made the decision to retain everybody wanting to return to the club and when we have managed to get back onto the field over the last few months, the standard and commitment that we have seen has been inspiring.

“Some of our squads are still playing and representing the club in leagues or cup competitions and it has been great to see the football community come together, as well as the brilliant volunteers who have worked hard to put sessions on or make them a safe environment for all to be in.”

This year will see the Development Days move the Derby County FC’s state-of the-art facility at Moor Farm which will hold the event for the first time across two days in July (Monday 5th & Thursday 8th) with Cholerton praising the continuous development of our relationship with Derby County FC.

“It’s so exciting to be going to Moor Farm for the Development Days, it will hopefully inspire each and every one of those attending to see where the stars of both the Ewe Rams and the Rams train each week and we hope that will give them a massive boost.

“Being able to hold these events at Moor Farm shows the fantastic relationship we have with the main club and we can’t thank them enough for allowing us to hold them at a fantastic facility. We of course need to remember that there are still restrictions in place but its going to be very exciting.

“With moving to Moor Farm, we have had to change our booking system so that it is as efficient as we can be with space and timing limited and so the link below will allow you to book your child onto the Development Days in their own age Groups..

“Please ensure that you use your daughter’s name for the ticket so that we are not causing any unnecessary delays when signing in on the day. You will need your ticket or code to sign in but it should be very quick and easy.

“All players should sign up to the Development Days whether they were with the club for the 2020/21 season or if they were with another club. There is of course no charge for attending our Development Days and hopefully it will be a fantastic two days coming very soon!”
