Many thanks for checking out our website!
Here at MBFDC, we offer a variety of football opportunities utilising state of the art facilities based at Mounts Bay Academy in Penzance, Cornwall. Our coaching and development programmes cater for a range of age groups and abilities from 3-16 years of age (boys and girls).
In 2011, Kevin Lawrence (UEFA ‘B’ Licensed Coach & Teacher) was employed as full time Head of Football Development at Mounts Bay Academy, and utilising the brand new 3G floodlit pitch, Kevin quickly got the Football Development Centre up and running.
Over the past 10+years the Football Centre has grown from strength to strength making a positive impact within the local community. We deliver innovative football opportunities in partnership with Cornwall FA, Cornwall Schools’ FA and Plymouth Argyle. Although we have connections with other professional clubs, our strongest links are with Plymouth, who are indeed our nearest professional club in a County which is geographically challenged and devoid of a professional football club. Through a collaborative approach, the Player Pathway in Cornwall has been very successful in recent years, with many MBFDC players being signed at professional clubs as well as gaining representative honors at County, Regional and National levels.
We are also in association with global brand Nike and their national kit provider ‘kitlocker.com‘, who supply our players and coaching staff with top of the range Nike kit and equipment. We also engage with the wider community and have many links with local schools and grassroots clubs. Apart from our community provision, we also host an array of schools festivals and tournaments providing adequate opportunities for all to enjoy.
All MBFDC coaching staff are UEFA/FA qualified and DBS checked, allowing the children to develop over time within a fun, professional and safe learning environment. If you are looking to have a great time, play more football and receive some professional coaching then look no further!
