Performance Staff

Our aim is enabling players to develop and progress with exposure to pathways into the professional game.

Supported by our individually selected UEFA A and UEFA B licensed coaches have been recruited because of their proven track record and experience in youth football.

Player development is enhanced by sports science, psychology and welfare tailored to individual players.

Pathway Mentors

At Gloucester Elite Performance Academy, we recognise the importance for the young players in our care to aspire to be upstanding members of society and to have good values and standards as individuals within their communities. The qualities we actively encourage within our teams such as commitment, self-discipline, self-esteem, respect, loyalty and empathy are all qualities we believe will empower them throughout their lives and the impact they have on others, irrespective of their achievements as football players.
