Charlton launch Girls Academy in Maidstone
 Women's Football News 22 Jan 2016
 
Future Schools Trust in Maidstone is kick-starting the New Year with the launch of its own girls' football academy in partnership with Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT). 
 
CACT already runs successful courses for boys at Future Schools Trust's two academies, Cornwallis and New Line Learning, as well as at other sites across Kent, but this will be its first female post-16 squad in the county.
 
Daniel Gill, assistant development manager at CACT, said: "We're very excited about launching our first girls' only academy in Kent, especially as this will be the first of its kind to be introduced by a championship club in Maidstone.
 
"It will be a great opportunity for talented, young women to follow a bespoke syllabus designed in accordance with Premier League and Football League's Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP), delivered by UEFA qualified coaches.
 
"They will also have the chance to achieve recognised coaching qualifications, such as FA Level 1, FA Level 2 and coaching for disabled footballers."
 
The new academy has been developed with the support of the captain of Charlton Athletic's Women's team, Kim Dixson. The midfielder delivered a scheme of football development sessions for girls, which were funded by the Football League Trust.
 
She said: "For years, football has generally been seen as more of a sport for boys but I feel the game has grown for women in recent times, especially with the increase of media coverage due to the national team's success in the World Cup.
 
"There are many more opportunities to help young women to engage with football and for them to build their confidence on the pitch, such as this Post 16 Academy."
 
Trials for the boys' and girls' academies are:
 
11.00am on Thursday, February 18th
10.00am on Saturday, April 2nd
5.00pm on Wednesday, April 27th
5.00pm on Wednesday, May 25th
 
Venue: New Line Learning Academy, in Boughton Lane, Loose. Each session will run for two hours.
