The six Counties (Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Dorset and Wiltshire) will all run for a fourth season an FA Girls' Advanced Coaching Centre (ACC). This is a programme designed to support the development of elite female players. The Cornwall ACC is the highest level of football that girls can play in the County.


The Girls' ACC will provide the opportunity for the most talented players to progress through the pathway to achieve their potential. For the elite players at the ACC, there will be the opportunity to go on and represent a South West Regional Excellence Camps on specially designed residential weekends, with girls from the other  ACC's and RTC's in the South West region. Here they will get the chance to play against Centres from around the Country.

To be nominated for a trail at the ACC we will need a club recommendation from a players coach, we can also accept school nominations but players must be attached at a grassroots club to be able to join the ACC. Unfortunately we are unable to accept parent nominations.
