FAB ACADEMY BISHAM ABBEY
As the focus on Girls football continues to rise, FAB Academy have some great football opportunities for girls.
Girls Junior Academy (U9 – U16)
Our Thursday night Girls Junior Football Academy is held at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre on the 3G Astro surface, for U9 to U16 age groups and GK.
The Girls training sessions offer professional coaching to above average players and are aimed at providing additional coaching for players and build on any grassroots/ club football training they get. We run the courses in phases of 10 weeks, currently at a reduced cost, and they are led by one of our senior FA qualified coaches who will be supported by other qualified coaches from our current Junior Academy.
We’d like to encourage lots more girls to join us so that we can help improve their football skills, as well as enabling them to train with other talented girls, as we feel that their development will be accelerated by playing with other girls.
Full Time Scholarship
For those girls who then wish to take their Football career further, our Girls Scholarship Programme offers a full time 2-year course for Year 11 school leavers who can demonstrate substantial footballing talent, or whose skills suggest they could have the potential to play professionally, or wish to follow a career in sport.
We have been successfully running a Boys scholarship programme at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre since 2011 and the Girls Academy will follow the same model.
This programme has the backing of Sport England and the education will be delivered in conjunction with Altwood School based in Maidenhead. A BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Sport (equivalent to 3 A Levels) is available.
