Youth Team and Academy

Join The Rochdale AFC Shadow Squad

28 March 2019

The Rochdale AFC Shadow Squad is currently recruiting players at Under-14 and Under-15 age groups.

The Shadow Squad mirrors the coaching syllabus and practices used within the Academy.

There is also the opportunity to go on trial with the Academy if the player impresses, whilst there is a post-16 pathway into the Elite Development Squad. Players can also continue to play with their grass roots teams if they wish.

The sessions take place on Friday evenings between 5pm-6pm at Heywood Sports Village, West Starkey Street, Heywood, OL10 4TW, with a match on the last Friday of every month.
