Women's Football News
It seems that whatever the boys can do these days - girls are more than capable of matching them if given the same opportunities.
Whether it's in education or sport, the fairer sex is steadily sneaking up on its male counterpart and now through the brainchild of former professional footballer and UEFA A Licence holder Domenico Genovese, the chance to combine both will be on offer in the city of Peterborough.
As from September this year, girls dreaming of following in the footsteps of England and Arsenal striker Kelly Smith or Marta from Brazil, can do so when a full time football academy opens its doors for the first time through the local Further Education College.
Soccerstar Head Coach, Domenico Genovese, said: "This is a great opportunity to further develop Women's Football in the Peterborough area and gives local talented girls the chance to fulfil their football dreams.
"Players will follow an FA approved coaching programme run by soccerstar highly-qualified ex-professional coaches and they will participate in various practices in football. Players will also have the opportunity to further their education by attending their Local FE college who will provide first class training through a wide range of academic studies."
The wide range of subjects that the girls can study are Sports Diploma, Hairdressing, Public Services, Engineering, Childcare and Performing Arts to name a few and they also have the chance to gain additional football coaching qualifications.
The two-year course will incorporate intensive football training, together with matches, as well as learning about other aspects of the game. Each player will receive 15 hours of playing and coaching time per week including matches against other Academy sides from around the country.
Aimed at 16 to 19-year-olds, trials will be held later this year and soccerstar are urging any budding female footballer to get in touch and register their interest as places will be limited. If you are currently in Year 11 or 16-19 years old, please call (07768) 115001 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for an information pack.
