Opportunities for girls aged Under-7 to Under-16

Here come the girls
There are so many exciting opportunities for young female players to get into the local grassroots game.

From mini soccer for youngsters taking their first steps in the game, to kickabouts for those who don’t want the commitment of joining a club.

England’s success in recent major tournaments has captured the attention and hearts of the nation, as we look ahead with excitement to their adventure at the 2019 FIFA World Cup.

The Lionesses spoke of inspiring the next generation and creating a legacy. They certainly did just that – and The FA and Northamptonshire FA are here to develop it.

Check out all the opportunities below to get involved in the local game.

Girls' ACC

The Advanced Coaching Centres are county-led programmes and provide additional training opportunities for girls playing in grassroots football.

Due to the geographical challenges and limited playing opportunities in the East and South West, the pathways are region specific and have a player-focused approach to elite female youth football, ensuring that it is accessible as well as supportive and educational. This pathway has ensured that the players’ development, health and wellbeing is at the forefront of the programme.
