Academy Centres are the second stage of the Player Pathway, and are the first rung on the representative ladder. Attendance is by invitation only.
In Leicestershire we run our Academy Centre at Ratcliffe College on a Sunday. We offer U13,U14,U15,U16 and U17 squads for both boys and girls. Qualification is based on birth years NOT school years.
