Our Girls Emerging Talent Centre (ETC) programme is part of England Football and is funded by the Premier League.
It’s designed to be a central hub for local talented female players from Burton on Trent, Uttoxeter and the surrounding areas and will work in partnership with grassroots clubs to ensure the offer is beneficial to grassroots players. The Emerging Talent Centre will work with grassroots clubs, schools and local coaches to identify talented female players for this elite training experience.
We offer a comprehensive approach to player development, giving all girls selected access to a high quality training programme, strength and conditioning coaches, access to onsite physiotherapist, nutritional advice and health and wellbeing support. This programme will be offered across the community and measures are in place to ensure it will be accessible and inclusive for all to access elite level training. Groups will also be invited to play in competitive games against other ETC programmes.
The ETC offers:
- Up to 2 hours contact time per week (dependent on age)
- For girls age 8 – 16
- Centralised venue
- Access to physiotherapist
- Education Workshops
- Bespoke Games Programme (built around grassroots club commitments)
- Job opportunities within elite girls programme
- CPD opportunities for grassroots coaches
During the 2023/24 season we will be running an Under 10s (U9/10), Under 12s (U11/12) and Under 14 (U13/14) age groups. To enable us to deliver this project we will be hosting open trials on Tuesday 1st and Tuesday 8th August 2023 at Burton Albion Community Football Centre, Princess Way, DE13 0AR.
