Talent pathway

The Girls England Talent Pathway provides opportunities for identifying and supporting players with elite potential enabling appropriate playing opportunities to develop young players.

Sheffield & Hallamshire CFA coordinates the Girls Player Development Centre (PDC) for U11, U13 and U15 which is aimed at developing grassroots players, whilst continuing to play with their clubs.

The PDC runs for 15 weeks during each season working through a coaching syllabus and providing opportunities to play fixtures against other PDC’s.

This is the first step onto the Elite Talent Pathway and supports the transition between grassroots football and the Centre of Excellence (CoE).

Sheffield United Girls Centre of Excellence is one of 30 FA Centre’s of Excellence across England. It provides an advanced coaching centre to develop players around the FA’s 4 Corner Model that supports the technical, tactical, theoretical and social development of talented players.

The coaching programme encompasses the principles of Long Term Player Development (LTPD) as set out in the FA LTPD introductory guide for Women and Girls' football.

Players access the CoE through a trial process and with the successful players access 2 training sessions per week, along with a regular fixture schedule against other CoE’s within the region.
