PRO:FACE
FOOTBALL and DEVELOPMENT CENTRE

PRO:FACE was formed in 2017 with the goal to create a football development resource for the growing population of Blackburn with Darwen players and coaches. Since then, PRO:FACE has grown to become one of the most respected football academies in the town. The growth of PRO:FACE is a direct result of the exceptional coaching staff who conduct insightful and enjoyable training sessions that are completely focused on player development. We have a clear focus…. If we want to develop a better player, we must educate and develop the person. Moral Fibre, Professionalism, Humility, Respect and a Work Ethic are important life skills that each of our coaches instil, in all our players.Our concept of developing a player evolves around educating intelligence. We strive to develop respectful, intelligent, hardworking, skilful players who have excellent decision-making skills both on and off the ball.
