Charlton Athletic Women’s Football Club can confirm details of its Post 16 Girls’ Football Academy, run in partnership with Thomas Tallis School, Kidbrooke

The full-time education and football course will offer attendees the chance to study for a BTEC extended Level 3 in Sports Science (or Sports), equivalent to three A-Levels as well as opportunities for additional qualifications in sports leadership, first aid and many more.

 

They will also benefit from coaching by UEFA A and B Licensed coaches working within CAWFC’s Regional Talent Club (RTC).

 

It also offers a future pathway into the club’s senior team, which currently boasts a number of homegrown players at its core, including club captain Kim Dixson, who has played over 220 times for the club; and Kit Graham, who has netted 145 goals in 164 appearances since making her debut aged 16.

 

Paul McDonagh, RTC technical director at Charlton Athletic WFC, said: “I am pleased to announce the post 16 academy project that will start in September this year. This will bridge the gap between the U16 team and senior football.

 

“Players will be able to play full time whilst studying for qualifications that will help them in future life no matter what their career choice.

 

“Thomas Tallis are a forward thinking school, we have worked together to finalise this program and I look forward to a long and successful partnership with them.”
