Female Football

15 May 2017

Colchester United's Football in the Community programme currently runs three female football programmes.

As well as our established Female Football College scheme, 2017 saw us launch two new programmes:-

Wildcats
SSE Wildcats Girls football Clubs were launched by The FA to help reach their target of doubling female participation in football by the year 2020.

Colchester United began their programme in April 2017 andin early 2018 we confirmed that we would be running three centres. These sessions are designed for girls aged between 5-11 years of age, who want to come and have a go!

Our sessions are as follows:-

Weston Homes Community Stadium. Colchester: Saturdays, 10.30am to 11.30am (from 21st April to 4th August 2018) for School Years 1-3

The Dome at Warriors Rest, Tiptree: Fridays, 5.30pm to 6.30pm (from 20th April to 3rd August 2018) for School Years 4-6

Little Oakley Football Club, Little Oakley: Thursdays, 5.00pm to 6.00pm (from 19th April to 2nd August 2018) for School Years 4 to 6.

Development Centre
2017 has seen us launch an U8s and U9s Development Centre for girls to be invited to, so that they can further develop their already learned skills from playing in their own club environment.

We work in partnership with Essex FA for the players to lead into their Regional Talent Club which is the elite programme for U10s-U16s.

Each player will receive individual coaching pints for them to improve in game realistic situations. Get in contact at fitc@colchesterunited.net about how a trial process can be set up to become part of our centre.
