The Women’s Football Academy Programme is for players of all levels. There will also be the opportunity to play recreational football in the weekly intramural 6 a side league and futsal.
Players could have up to six hours a week of football related activities, which will include theory sessions, coaching, fitness sessions, skills work and post-match analysis, in addition to competitive matches which will normally take place on Wednesday afternoons.
The College enters teams in all major ESFA and British Colleges Sport leagues, cups and tournaments, as well as playing in local leagues and friendlies. The players will also have the opportunity to develop their coaching skills by completing the Sport Leaders Awards and FA level 1 coaching.
The Academy is aiming to be the development centre for Women’s football in Cornwall. It has already established links with several local clubs including Truro City and Newquay Ladies. We also hope to develop the girls coaching abilities with the possibility of them pursuing careers locally and overseas. Previous players have progressed onto apprenticeships in Football Coaching and scholarships to universities in the USA.
Please refer to the Academy Overview for details on how this will combine with an academic programme of study.
