Skill Centres

Skills Centres which link in to and feeds the Elite Player Development Centre offers players and goalkeepers the chance to receive quality technical coaching sessions at venues situated in key areas across Suffolk. We have venues in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Beccles, Sudbury, Copleston, East Bergholt, Sandon, Tunstall, Bottisham and Elveden. 

Ipswich Town Skills Centres are weekly coaching sessions for children aged 6 to 12, who love to play football regularly. Sessions are available for both boys and girls who may play for a club, their school but also welcome beginners who have never player before.

Sessions offer technical coaching, skills development and allow the opportunity for participants to practice in small-sided matches. Our trained coaches have the experience and understanding to cater for the needs of the group and ensure that children are happy and developing their skills, while following a structured ITFC syllabus.
