The Gloucestershire FA Girls Coaching Centre 2022-23

The Gloucestershire FA Girls Coaching Centre, support the development of Elite Female Players across the South West

Gloucestershire FA Girls Coaching Centre (GCC) 2022/23

The GCC is a bespoke programme that will be replacing the former ACC programme, designed to support the development of Elite Female Players across the South West of England from U12’s to U16’s for the 2022-2023 season.

The Gloucestershire FA GCC provides a professional environment to allow Elite Female Players to reach their full potential within the game and have the opportunity to progress up the Player Pathway.

As well as additional coaching, players can expect to receive 1:1 support from their coaches, additional opportunities for learning outside of training, player reviews throughout the season and support from FA members of staff around injury prevention. The Programme will continue to support the long term development of the players and provide them with the tools to achieve their goals while moving through the FA’s England Talent Pathway. The programme will also offer specialised Goalkeeper training every other week.

The GCC will be based at Gloucestershire FA, Oaklands Park, Almondsbury, Bristol, BS32 4AG on the 3G Football Pitch and this training will take place on Monday evenings. Players must live within a 90 minute/90 mile radius of the training venue.

To be eligible for selection for the GCC, girls must be playing in an affiliated grassroots club during the 2021-2022 season and be eligible to represent England.
