Cambridge FC’s Future Reds programme supports young boys and girls who want to get the most from their football.
The programme is conducted for the club by the Ricki Herbert Football Academy, ensuring a high standard of coaching from qualified coaches. It provides additional opportunities for players to develop, other than through their team training sessions.
Future Reds has four parts:
- A player development programme open to all boys and girls aged 6-11. It focuses on helping players improve their skills while having fun. This operates every term of the year.
- A skills centre for players aged 9-12 who have demonstrated high levels of skill and a desire to perform to their potential. Inclusion in the skills centre is by invitation only (automatic for the top two graded teams from each Saturday grade). The skills centre operates for all terms.
- Holiday programmes during school term breaks, open to boys and girls aged 6 to 15.
- Sunday Federation Junior and Youth Federation programme for U-12, U-13, U-14 boys and U-14 girls. This includes the selection, coaching sessions and game days.
