The Premier League Girls Football Programme was founded to drive up female football participation using the League’s successful satellite club model developed in the Premier League 4 Sport programme.

The three-way partnership between the Premier League, The FA and Sport England aims to use the power of the club badge and the high-quality club coaching experience to drive participation. Already since the launch at the end of October 2013, more than 9,000 young females were engaged, with two thirds of those being over 14.

From October 2017, the Foundation are launching BRAND NEW sessions as part of the programme to provide a variety of different sessions for women and girls aged 11 and over. You can find out all you need to know about these sessions, simply click here.

All of these sessions are delivered by professional Stevenage FC Foundation coaches, who are minimum FA Level 2 accredited. Sessions range from 1 hour to 2 hours long and they involve all aspects of football from fun fitness-based activities to game-related play.

As the project develops we aim to create open satellite sessions for females 14 – 25 years old at community based venues. 

Stevenage FC Foundation started coming into The Priory School in September 2016. Our group is mainly made up of year 7 and 8 girls, all with different football abilities. The Stevenage FC Foundation sessions have allowed girls to develop at all levels, from being complete novices to higher level that already play at clubs outside of school. Not only have girls improved in their football abilities but also their confidence and social skills.  – Jo Churchman, PE Cover Supervisor.
