Advanced Coaching Centre Launch Suffolk
« on: May 01, 2015, 10:07:19 AM »
Suffolk FA had announced the launch of its ACC. www.suffolkfa.com/news/2015/apr/girls-advanced-coaching-centre-launch.

The Suffolk FA Girls Advanced Coaching Centre challenges the skills and development of players against other ACC’s within the East Region – Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Norfolk. This ensures high-quality competitive opportunities on a regular basis to challenge each player.

My question is what happens to the 16 year olds in year 12?

Also how does this integrate with the Centre of Excellences structure? Can girls from the a Centre of Excellence attend the FA GIRLS’  REGIONAL EXCELLENCE CAMPS which are linked the the ACC?

Most WSL clubs now have 6th Form Academies, nominally called "U19s" but predominantly made up of 16 & 17 year-olds. This now seems to be the main path to Elite football.

Like the South West this is a forerunner to the replacement of most(?) Centres of Excellence that will happen in 2016: http://www.womensfootball.eu/forum/index.php/topic,8125.0.html
I believe the girls from the South West have been eligible for the England camps, although whether any of them were selected this year I don't know.

I have the teamsheet from the recent U16 game I attended between France and England and I think one of the player comes from the South West ( not a French one obviously )  ;)
