Block 2 of the girls-only development centre ran in partnership between FC Halifax Town and Leeds United Foundations is open for registration.

For girls aged 7-15 years the sessions run, 6.00-7.00pm every Wednesday at Calderdale College.

The main aim for the Development Centre is to increase participation in girls playing football, ensuring young females that are interested in the sport are offered the same opportunities to play and develop their skills.

This programme has been designed by the club’s official charities to find and nurture players from a young age within West Yorkshire, providing a platform for girls to perform at their best level.  The training sessions will run each week, with qualified coaches on hand to train, support, and offer advice. For those that wish to continue playing football beyond the Development Centre, there will also be a number of different opportunities to further progress with both Leeds United and FC Halifax Town.

Block 2 of sessions will run for 7-weeks commencing on Wednesday 2nd November.  To register a place follow the link here and scroll down to the Calderdale College centre.
