Residential Football Camp for Girls 24–28 July 2017
King’s was the first National Girls’ Football Development School for
the Independent Schools FA (ISFA) and remains at the forefront of the
development of independent school girls’ football.
Links with the Football Association, Women’s Super League Clubs, community football and universities both in the UK and the USA, combine to provide excellent opportunities for players of all abilities.
King’s girls achieve National ISFA caps, attend Elite Performance Camps and participate in the local, regional and national development camp programmes.
Following on from the success and popularity of our 2016 camp, we
will be running the residential football camp for girls again next
Aimed at girls aged 9 – 12 and 13–16 years, the camp provides the opportunity to play football and also to undertake the FA Junior Football Leaders' Award (12 years +).
