Female Football Trials

6 February 2016

Can you join our Sixth Form programme?

 Colchester United Female Football College Programme will be holding an open trial evening in February.

The Colchester United Female Football College Programme is a sixth form and football education programme based at Thurstable Sports College and Sixth Form Tiptree, Essex. 

On Wednesday 17th February 2016, we will be hosting a trial date for new applications commencing September 2016. 

Download the application form HERE.

This is an opportunity for successful candidates to continue with their education as well as develop further as a footballer. The programme will not impact on players' own club commitments and players are still encouraged to play for their own club sides at weekends.

The programme is open to all sixth form students during academic year 2016/17 and unlike other Female Football programmes offers a range of academic courses including A Levels, B-Tec and GCSE re-sits.

All successful candidates will attend Thurstable Sixth Form on daily basis and the coaching for the football programme will be four afternoons a week. 

On Wednesdays, the squad plays their college league games in the British College Sport, National College Football League.

The purpose of the Football College is to provide a unique experience in which those selected would have the opportunity to be trained by top Colchester United coaches. 

This will be a prestigious and enriching experience that will enhance the career and prospects of students whose passion and flair for sport has already been recognised.
