REGIONAL TALENT CLUB (RTC) TRIALSThe Charlton Athletic Girls teams have an outstanding record in recent seasons competing in the Capital Girls Cup, the Capital Girls League and tournaments such as the ESF Festival of Football. This success coupled with our top quality set-up and coaching was recently rewarded when we were successful in gaining a FA RTC Licence.
Our trials were held on the new full-size 3G pitches at the Charlton Athletic Football Club Training Ground in New Eltham. The new 3G pitches are the first phase of a multi-million pound re-development of the training ground which will include an indoor training area & 3 storey building which will house a gym, hydro-pool, physio suite, offices and a cafeteria. These facilities will be available to the Women's & Girls set-up and and our excellent support staff of physios, sports scientists & strength & conditioning coaches. Training for all our clubs teams will take place at the training ground.
Our RTC teams train twice a week and play weekly in a fixture programme. The U16s & U14s play in RTC League on Saturdays whilst the U12s & U10s will be playing in the Tandridge Youth League on Sundays
