Girls Football Camp Success

In the May half term, we held our biggest ever girls’ only football camp and sold out for the first time!

Our Girls’ Football Camp launched in October 2022 and around 16 girls attended. Since then, we have seen numbers steadily grow each half-term. In May, we sold out the Girls Football Camp with an amazing 50 girls in attendance!

This growth is largely due to the hard work of our Female Football Development team, and the coaches who have delivered a wide range of female football sessions over the last 24 months. Since its introduction, the team have engaged with nearly 300 girls, some girls travel from Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cumbria to attend the camps, making us one of the biggest girls’ football camps in the country!

BFCCT’s Girls’ Football Camps have been built on a foundation of offering high-quality structured football coaching sessions, covering a wide range of topics to develop players whilst having fun and enjoying their school holidays. The sessions are delivered by UEFA-qualified coaches, including some of our highly experienced Blackpool FC FA Girls’ Emerging Talent Centre (ETC) coaches. The Girls’ Football Camps are one of the main programmes BFCCT use to identify talented players for the ETC, an elite female football programme which is part of the England Lioness Talent Pathway.

Andy Aspinall, Female Football Development Manager at BFCCT said,

“Over the last two years, we have worked hard to build relationships and trust with local grassroots clubs in the Poulton and District Primary League. The Fylde Coast is a hotbed for girls’ football, and lots of people are doing great work to ensure that young female footballers have a positive experience in the area. Girls from all over Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre attend our sessions, it is great to engage with girls who play for a wide range of local teams. We aim to invest in local talent, help players reach their potential and encourage them to fall in love with the game so it becomes a lifetime hobby.”

BFCCT are delivering five weeks of Girls Football Camps in the summer holidays and would love aspiring female footballers aged 7-14 to come along, develop their football skills, make new friends, and have fun!
