Richard Todd appointed technical director of newly formed football academy

Experienced coach Richard Todd has been handed overall responsibility for new football academy

Richard Todd has been appointed as the first technical director of the newly formed Warwick Football Academy.

The former Boulevard player brings a wealth of experience to the role after serving in similar capacities as the director of coaching and academy director for youth club programmes in the United States and Bermuda, with his previous roles including the National Academy director for the Bermuda Football Association and president of the Bermuda Football Coaches Association.

Todd has been tasked with handling administrative and coaching responsibilities throughout the structure as well as helping to lead the development, education and certification of coaches throughout the programme.

In addition, he will be involved in building the High Performance Football Programme at Warwick Academy, which offers elite training opportunities woven into the school timetable and curriculum for students enrolled at the school.

Todd will also continue to grow the relationship with the International Development Academy (internationalda.com) to provide enriching experiences in supporting footballers' ambitions outside of Bermuda.

The Warwick Football Academy was formed last month following the merger of the Warwick Academy Football Club and the Warwick Archers Youth Football Club.

It will provide football experiences for boys and girls from introductory programmes at the Under-5 Peewee age group, progressing through developmental and elite player programming up to the under-17 age group.

The academy is based at Warwick Academy and will draw its player pool primarily from the school's student population at the younger ages and providing opportunities for players from the wider community to join.

As the official youth programme for Robin Hood FC, the academy creates a pathway to senior football. This ambitious plan was driven by a desire to create a seamless model through the age groups, broadening the offering to more footballers and adding value and retaining those looking for elite level experiences on island.

Evaluations for those interested in joining the under-13, under-15 and under-17 teams for next season will be held at the school over the coming weeks.

Sessions for the under-15 and under-17 boys’ teams will take place on June 6, 8, 13 and 15 from 6pm to 7.30pm on the lower field at Warwick Academy.

Players and parents can register to attend these sessions or enquire about additional age groups for boys and girls by e-mailing soccer_coach_todd@hotmail.com.
