Get involved with FA Girls’ Football Week

Chester FC Community Trust has a host of opportunities for girls to play football during The FA Girls’ Football Week.
 

 
Kicking off today and running until Sunday, The FA Girls’ Football Week is a national campaign to give even more girls the chance to get involved with the sport whether playing, training or simply learning more about the beautiful game.
 
During the week, Chester FC Community Trust coaches will be visiting schools and delivering a range of sessions for girls of all ages to play football.
 
Girls football continues to grow in popularity and Chester is well served with a number of fantastic grassroots clubs catering for girls of all ages including Chester & District Girls, AFC Waverton Girls and Upton JFC.

Monday
 
The Chester FC Girls Advanced Player Development Centre (APDC) programme for 2017/18 launches with an assessment evening on the new 3G pitch at Blacon High School.
 

 
The APDC is a partnership between Chester FC Community Trust and Cheshire FA designed to support players in their development and to help them reach their potential, bridging the gap between grassroots football and FA Regional Talent Clubs.
 
Players continue to train and play for their grassroots club, but are invited onto a 20 week training programme that will challenge them in line with The FA’s four corner model and feature a minimum of two fixture festivals in conjunction with other APDCs.
