The FA has launched a month of free football sessions for girls and women


grassroots to lionesses!

Durham FA help organise, develop and support a wide range of opportunities for young girls to participate within football and provide support to clubs, players, coaches and volunteers.


The Durham FA Girls Player Development Centre runs on a Friday evening at the Riverside Sports Complex Chester le Street. It caters for U11-U16 girls who also continue to play for their Grassroots Football Club. The programme offers an opportunity for girls to receive additional coaching to support their on-going development. The sessions are age appropriate whilst being engaging and challenging. All of the coaches who lead the sessions are Level 2, 3 or A Licensed.

We will be releasing the details of our Girls Player Development Centre for the 22-23 season shortly. Information will be available on our website and on our social media channels when details have been confirmed. If you would like further information or would like to register your interest for your daughter to attend next season then please email:
