Girls Football Leadership Opportunity - Lincolnshire Lionesses

This programme runs across Lincolnshire to give females, aged 14+, the opportunity to improve their skills

With ‘Lockdown 3’ underway and many of us looking for online learning opportunities, Lincolnshire FA, alongside the Barclays Girls Football School Partnerships, are delighted to share with you our latest opportunity for aspiring female leaders - The Lincolnshire Lionesses.

This opportunity includes an online and totally free-of-charge leadership course that has been developed by the Youth Sport Trust and The FA through the Girls’ Football School Partnerships of Greater Lincolnshire, who have provided quality content to give the best available leadership training to girls aged 14+. 

It is also supported by influential names such as Football League Manager Danny Cowley (see below). There will be the opportunity to gain qualifications as well as progress to national training and it only requires a few hours of commitment!

More about the programme:

This programme runs across Lincolnshire to give females, aged 14+, the opportunity to improve their skills, knowledge and understanding of female sports development in Lincolnshire and be a role model to other females.  This training will help them to be able to deliver activities, along with opportunities to network with like-minded leaders across Greater Lincolnshire. Girls involved in this programme could, if they wanted to, also follow the county and national programmes and attend further events and training.

The Lincolnshire Lionesses programme has been developed to understand the skills and personal qualities of different, varying roles that you may come across in a sports career. They will have the opportunity to complete the FA Playmaker Award that will help improve your confidence on and off the pitch. 

The link to sign up to the programme is as follows: 


Girls have until the end of January to sign up and once they have done so, the local partnerships will liaise directly with the young leaders and take things from there. The programme is due to begin in February.
