EMERGING TALENT CENTRE AWARDED TO BURNLEY!
Burnley FC in the Community and BFC is delighted to hold a FA Emerging Talent Centre Licence after a successful application process.
The national network of girls’ ETCs will be aimed at girls aged 8 to 16 and will operate for at least 30 weeks (3 x 10 week blocks) per season, and will commence from November 2022. The centres will be underpinned by five key areas:
- Better accessibility
- More inclusivity
- Reducing the impact of early selection
- More focused investment
- Providing more appropriate challenges
The programme is designed to be a central hub for selected female players from Burnley and the surrounding areas. The Emerging Talent Centre will work with selected players and their clubs/schools to increase participation and identify female players with the potential to progress further. Sessions are open to all and in place to break down barriers and present new opportunities for women who have a passion for football and support wider access to the FA Female Talent pathway!
