The programme is designed to be a central hub for local talented female players from Blackpool, Fylde and the surrounding areas and will work in partnership with grassroots clubs to ensure the offer is beneficial to grassroots players. The Emerging Talent Centre will work with grassroots clubs, schools and local coaches to identify talented female players for this elite training experience.
Blackpool FC Community Trust are delighted to announce the launch of the FA Weetabix Wildcats girls’ football sessions for girls aged 5-11. FA Wildcats sessions are designed to be an introduction to football for many but also act as an extra training session for those girls who already play football. Girls of all abilities are more than welcome.
The Future Lioness Development Centres sessions are open to everyone; however it is most suitable to girls who currently play for a football team and are medium-to-high ability players. Thanks to support from the EFL and a Future Lioness Talent ID fund we are able to find ways to highlight talented females local to Blackpool FC. Sessions will offer high-quality coaching which mirrors the Emerging Talent Centre sessions.
