Women’s football is going form strength to strength. Now Huddersfield Town are giving young people a chance to experience its state of the art Women’s football academy.

Delivered in partnership with Calderdale College the academy gives girls between the ages of 16 and 19 a chance to combine study and sport. The program was launched last year with students able to study any course at the college, alongside their football.

When not studying at the college, students will train twice a week with Town Foundation’s top FA qualified coaches. Their goal is to help young players develop their potential and build a thriving, successful team.

Students will represent Huddersfield Town in the EFL Community and Education Football Alliance playing teams from other top Premiership and EFL clubs.

Over the coming weeks they will be holding open days for anyone who wants to get involved.

This season they have been in the North Central Ladies Dvision taking on the likes of Manchgester City, Sheffield United, Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday.

Over the next few weeks they will be holding taster sessions to give anyone a taste of what training sessions are like. This is a great chance to experience some fantastic sessions, find out about Calderdale college and perhaps take the first step in an exciting football career.
Sessions run on, Tuesday 6 April: 2pm – 4pm or Tuesday 13th April from 4pm to 6pm. If you’d like to take part head to their website and fill out their online form.
