Who0le of Football Plan


Tailor-made pathway for girls

The Junior Girls Framework represents a new direction with a consistent and coordinated approach tailored to the needs of the female player. We focus on meeting the unique developmental needs of the player, while reducing barriers by offering girls-only football outside the crowded winter sports window.


The girls’ framework was finalised following an extensive review of junior girls football, which revealed that over half the girls currently playing mixed football wanted to play girls-only football but couldn’t as it wasn’t on offer at their local club.


Girls-only football aims to meets the needs of the female player in the current male-dominated environment, and is a tool to grow the number of females playing football. For the most talented girls who wish to remain in mixed football, the Junior Framework allows them to play football all year round and accumulate more football hours.
