Our Female Football Academy combines the opportunity to develop your football skills and achieve a recognised sports qualification. You will study in newly refurbished classrooms at the Centre of Sporting Excellence, Brintons Field in Kidderminster and will train four times a week on the same pitches as Kidderminster Harriers First Team. To study at the Female Football Academy you will need to apply on line and you will also need to take part in football trials as part of your application process.

If you love sport and learning about how to improve your performance then this is the course for you.
