England Women's Talent Pathway

Bedfordshire FA Advanced Coaching Centre

Our Lioness Talent Pathway Advanced Coaching Centre (ACC) runs squads at the following age groups: U10, U12, U14 and U16.

Bedfordshire FA Girls Advanced Coaching Centre

The Bedfordshire FA ACC forms part of the England Women's Talent Pathway Talent Pathway, The FA’s National Development Programme and the England Squads.

The centre allows talented players to improve their skills through quality coaching run by The Bedfordshire FA and licensed by The FA. Each player benefits from 29 weeks of coaching at Cranfield Pavilion Monday Nights mixed with competitive fixtures representing their area against other regional centres and/or appropriately selected teams.

The opportunity does not conflict with any players’ club football but provides an advanced addition to their development including nutrition advice and access to physiotherapy. If you are a player that feels they excel within their club environment or who plays within a mixed football team then we would like to hear from you.
