Women and girls

We are leading the way in encouraging more women and girls to play football. More than 1,200 women and girls play regular football at one of our sessions and in the last 12 months we have won a string of awards for our work.

Brighton & Hove Albion Soccer Schools

Our Brighton & Hove Albion Soccer Schools are a great place for young girls to learn new skills and make new friends in a safe, fun and structured environment. It’s aimed at girls aged between five and 16-years-old and you can find below the sessions we are running this summer:

Pathway centres for girls

The first level of the pathway is the holiday soccer schools, after school clubs and weekly soccer schools, where the emphasis is on girls of all abilities aged five to 13 taking part in fun sessions, providing an excellent introduction to football and a brilliant setting in which to develop new skills and make new friends.

Any girls who show particular promise can then be invited to an invitation centre. Again, aimed at girls aged five to 13, these take place at venues across Sussex. Players attending invitation centre sessions will receive advanced training aimed at further developing their skills. You can see below all the sessions available.
