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.
Lioness Talent Pathway for the 2019-20 season
Advanced Coaching Centres (ACCs) are part of a specifically designed programme linked to the Lioness talent pathway to support the development and progression of players in the South West and East of England. For those players who excel and are identified by ACC and National staff, they will be invited into the next step of the pathway. Below is an outline of the new pathway for this season, specifically designed to give the most supportive journey into the England teams for young players.
FA Girl’s U14 National Talent Camp (NTC)
The FA Girls’ National Talent Camps aims to identify U14 players who may possess international potential, and prepare these players for the future. These three-day camps will provide selected players with the opportunity to train and play amongst high level players from around the country. Players are given access to specialist support across the Technical, Physical, Medical, Education & Wellbeing disciplines and fixture opportunities are provided.
National Development Programme (NDP)
The National Development Programme facilitates the education and development of our most talented young players in the U14-U17 age groups, and is structured to complement the England Women’s Development teams as a wrap-around programme. It will work with selected players in the England Development teams as well as those within the wider Lioness Talent Pathway. The NDP has three strands of delivery:
NDP HUBS: Hub days provide regional individualised support to players across four corners of development (Technical, Physical, Physiotherapy, Education & Wellbeing).
NDP FIXTURES: North and South fixture days will be held; designed to extend the competitive challenge for players.
NDP TALENT ID: North and South talent ID days will provide a playing opportunity to identify new and re-emerging talent for potential future support.
England Women’s Youth National Teams
Identified through the FA Women’s Talent ID strategy, players will represent England in single age bands from U15s through to U21s.
