Cheryl said ‘It was a deciding factor in where to base the academy, RBWGFC and the facility has that buzz feel of a professional girls academy and just seeing all of the smiling girls here on a Friday evening enjoying their football is a wonderful sight to behold.’

Lessons are usually constructed around the players needs turning weaknesses into strengths and strengths into super strengths.

Age 12 – 16 sessions will be position specific with greater emphasis on tactical roles and responsibilities. Practicing techniques and scenarios to position in and out of possession
