Cornwall FA are delighted to share the details of the upcoming trials for the Cornwall Girls Emerging Talent Centre (U12, U14 and U16) and Advanced Development Centre (U8, U9 and U10).

The Cornwall Girls Emerging Talent Centre (formally Girls ACC) is a Girls only football development centre funded by the Premier League in line with the plans revealed to more than double the talent pool for the women's professional game. Previously named the Cornwall Girls Advanced Coaching Centre, it provides talented female players throughout Cornwall and its surrounding areas with weekly additional training and fixtures, whilst still playing for their grassroots club.

The Emerging Talent Centre sits as part of the national Lionesses talent pathway with the ultimate aim of helping to produce players to play at international level.

Cornwall FA additionally deliver a Girls Advanced Development Centre (ADC) which aims to support the development of U8, U9 and U10 girls. This session reflects the ethos of the Cornwall ETC, with players being coached once a week to complement their current grassroots offering, with the opportunity to progress to the ETC at U12s.
