Female Football Coaching Workshop

Women’s football has seen immense growth in recent years and opportunities for females to play is much greater, however, we still don’t see as many female coaches.

Through the Leeds United Foundation Go Ahead Programme, Anna Michael in Year 10 had the chance to visit West Riding County Football Association ground, where she spoke to female coaches and learnt about how to start her own journey as a football coach.

Anna was able watch some of the Leeds United coaches first hand as they delivered sessions to girls who are part of their Emerging Talent Centre. Anna has already started some elements of coaching at school so it would be great to see her progress towards her goal of becoming a volunteer coach for a local club.
