The Female Football Leadership Hubs will provide an environment for female leaders to develop as leaders, remain up to date with new opportunities and increase levels of self-confidence.
The hubs will give young people a voice and provide a pathway for aspiring young female leaders. The creation of the hub will underpin the brilliant work of our Young Leader Management Team (YLMT) and create a pathway from volunteering within the school and community environment, to progressing to the hub and to the YLMT.
Female Football Leadership Hub - Derby (14-21 year olds)
The Female Football Leadership Hub will meet on a monthly basis in Derby, on the second Monday of every month. The introductory launch night took place on Monday 23rd April and the first official evening of the hub will be on Monday 14th May 2018. Individuals can still join the hub at this stage.
Throughout the hub delivery evenings, content will be delivered from the FA Junior Football Leaders Course*. Leaders will therefore be certified with the JFL Qualification upon completion of attending the hub on a monthly basis.
Any individuals interested in being part of the Female Football Leadership Hub in Derby should complete this registration form.
(*The maximum age for the JFL course is 19 years of age and any individuals aged above this will still cover content of the course and develop their skills, but will not receive an FA certificate)
Female Football Leadership Hub - Chesterfield (13-19 year olds)
The Female Football Leadership Hub will meet on a bi-monthly basis and the first introduction evening will take place on Tuesday 29th May, 5pm-7pm at the Proact Stadium in Chesterfield.
Any individuals interested in being part of the hub should contact Steph O’Brien, firstname.lastname@example.org, to register their interest.
The Female Football Leadership Hubs will increase the number of female leaders and will support their development. The hubs will increase the number of females within the game and support the outcomes of the ‘FA’s Gameplan for Growth Women’s Strategy’ to double participation by 2020, increase the number and diversity of women coaching, refereeing and administering the sport at all levels, and develop participation opportunities and infrastructure.
