Thanks for that. Not long to wait then I guess

Any idea how we find out what clubs have applied for an RTC licence? Is there any way of knowing before licences are awarded?

Is there anywhere we can read more about this?

Would that include wsl2 clubs in tier 1 as there's Yeovil in Somerset and that's a long way for them to travel to matches up country. We have now heard that the RTCs tier 3 will be run in a similar way to the Advanced Coaching Centres

I understood it would be u10.12,14,16

What are the different tiers all about can anyone explain those?
I wonder what will happen to county FA run centres

So what is likely to happen with the newly formed Advanced Coaching Centres? Will they still operate?
Does this mean all centres of excellence will be closing then as at present the girls that show elite potential at ACCs go onto a South West residential centre of excellence, I guess that will shut too.

I see they are granting more licences though so more opportunity for extra clubs to gain a licence

Jessica Jones is from South west

I would have to agree with what Boot Cleaner has written. We have two old COEs (now ACCs) in our region. One is about 45 mins away and the other 60 mins away. When they were COEs my daughter was with the closer one, but training was poor, they took on girls to make up numbers, coaches lacked patience and people skills and they lost every single match they played (think 21-0 type scores!).

This year they've changed to ACCs she has gone to the one further away and has also gone back to boys football. Her playing has increased massively and more importantly she is enjoying it more, her ACC have only lost one game and won the rest with one draw and her boys team are top of the table.

The switch to ACCs in our region have been really successful and all the people I have spoken to have been really happy with the change. The regional South West COE that they have developed ( involving a combination of girls from all the ACCs in our area) has also been very successful and the u13 team has won all their games

Just what we were told when we put forward the same argue,net, however I do know that
Torquay boys academy is out funds and most likely closing this season

Well my first guess when the SW got the pilot scheme wa that perhaps they did it there as the SW hadn't produced as many international players as other areas? Or maybe the coaching wasn't as good as other areas? Then we were told it would be slowly rolled out further and didn't hear anything further so your guess is as good as mine

Actually a lot of boys centres in the south west closed last season and more set to close this season. I think cuts are being made to the boys game as well. I heard if the sw pilot was to be rolled out further it would be done so gradually area at a time. Perhaps they have only done it in these two regions as there's less female players there? I'm not sure. Will have to wait for further news I suppose

Well if all the COEs are going to eventually go then I suppose perhaps arsenal and Chelsea won't be as inundated as people think as girls will all be in the same boat with there being no COEs and so girls will just go to nearest centres.
The way our ACC works is that girls do two hour session training a week there supplemented by grassroots training. They play grassroots matches and then have AcC games in school hols. Girls who show elite potential get put forward for regional residential COE weekends away every month

Also I think it is good for girls to play grassroots with the boys for longer, I think it helps their development. Some will disagree but that's just my view. My daughter gets probably just as good a game playing division one boys grassroots football as she does at the ACC

We are in the south west and the ACC programme that we piloted this year has worked really well. The girls have loved being able to play grassroots again every weekend plus playing for the ACC, then of course having residential weekends away if they were picked for the South west regional COE. So it will hopefully work just as well in the east. When is it being started in the East, this year?

If county fas go there will be nothing left in the south west as that will wipe out Cornwall, Devon and somerset!

Wow that's much better odds for girls wonder if that small sample could be converted to reflect a bigger overall picture somehow

Well either I suppose if both routes lead to success would be interesting to know the figures of success

So we all know the number of boys in academies that turn pro is very very small by does anyone know the percentage of girls that leave academies that join a WSL 1 or 2 club or go abroad to play? I'm guessing the odds are much higher

Does anyone know if the ACCs that they introduced in the south west (dorset, wiltshire,devon,somerset,etc) for this season will be continuing for next season? It was a pilot for one season changing all the centres of excellence to ACCs and I've heard nothing either way to say whether they would be continuing or not

My daughter de registered after a month at one COE last year. It was no probs at all and she started back at club footy immediatley.  She's now joined another centre (ACC in the south west) but not overly happy there and doesn't play to her ability at all so may well take her out again
