Wolves Girls Regional Talent Club

We are delighted to announce that from June 2016, Wolves will hold an FA Elite Girls Regional Talent Club. Following a six month application process, Wolves will be part of 34 clubs across the country, delivering coaching and education to the best young female footballers.

RTCs have replaced the former Centre of Excellence model and will deliver enhanced coaching and support designed to improve the development of elite female players through the FA Girls' England talent pathway. As part of the changes, RTC age groups will run alongside the academic year, starting in September. For the first time, girls' U10 and U12 teams will compete in Charter Standard youth leagues, to enable players to further develop both technically and physically. The older age groups will compete in FA organised fixture programmes against other RTCs.

The changes have been led by The FA's Elite Performance Unit, which was set up in 2014 to manage the development of elite female footballers and coaches, to benefit the domestic and international game and support winning England teams.

Brent Hills, head of the Elite Performance Unit, said:

"The introduction of Regional Talent Clubs will really enhance the development of the best young female talent in this country and ensure that clubs and centres are better supported in working with them. We'd like to congratulate all of the clubs that have been successful. There were some excellent applications which bodes very well for the future of elite female football and the delivery of girls' coaching.

Jez Moxey, Wolves CEO said

"We're delighted to have been awarded an FA licence, our commitment to girls and women's football has been strong for a number of years. This FA licence will enhance opportunities for young female players to develop with Wolves through an elite development process."

The RTC will be run through WCT and heavily linked with Wolves Women. Trials will be held throughout June, with pre season kicking off in late July. To register your interest for the trials, please email andybutler@wolvescommunitytrust.org.uk

We now also have a number of positions available to apply for in the Regional Talent Club. If you would like to apply, please see the details on our Vacancies section
