YST Girls' Football Hubs



The Youth Sport Trust and The Football Association have recruited a network of education-based partnerships with schools throughout England. 
Known as ‘The FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships’, they will create strategic partnerships with families of schools that are committed to the growth and development of girls’ football. 

Through this infrastructure, we aim to develop innovative ways to deliver football for girls, improving participation from their very first experience and creating the next generation of female footballers, coaches and volunteers. 

In Lincolnshire we have three Youth Sport Trust Girls Football Hubs at Carres Grammar School, The Priory City of Lincoln Academy and through Inspire+. 

The initiative sits in line with The FA’s ambitions to double participation in female football by 2020 and its aim to provide every young girl an opportunity to access football in school by 2024. We aim to reach 90% of schools through the partnerships who will act as ambassadors for our sport in the coming years.
