Elite Centres

The Talent Identification Programme (TIPS) and Centre of Excellence (COE) are part of The FA’s talent pathway and provide high quality coaching programmes to the most talented disability footballers from across the county.

The purpose of The FA’s Programme for Excellence is to identify players of outstanding ability and place them in a technical and educational programme designed to produce football excellence in conjunction with personal development.

Players at the centres will still play for their club (disability or mainstream) and the centre of excellence training will just be an addition to their development. It’s the pinnacle of players in the West Midlands and offers the best football opportunities to progress through the below pathway.
