Oldham Athletic are delighted to offer an exciting new opportunity for young women to develop their career in the game.
For the 2024/25 season, the club will be launching a brand new women’s academy - and those aged 16-18 years old are now invited to take part in an open day.
The open day will take place at the club’s Little Wembley training ground, on the site of Boundary Park, on Friday 23 February 2024 between 11am-1pm.
To register for the open day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, including brief details of your footballing experience.
Arrangements for the open day will be confirmed by return but participants should bring a kit, boots and water bottle.
As the women’s game continues to flourish, the club is delighted to be launching a new academy for the 2024/25 season.
The full-time set-up offers a brilliant opportunity to receive professional football training whilst studying for an academic qualification, all at Boundary Park.
To be eligible for the academy and the open day, you must currently be in Year 11 at school.
The programme allows participants to obtain an NCFE Level 3 Diploma in Sport and Physical Activity.
This is not only a chance for young women to showcase their footballing talent, but also to be a part of a professional football club and develop both on and off the pitch.
The course will be led by coaches already working in the professional women’s game. We are very pleased to confirm the appointment of the club’s new Female Development Officer, Holly Espie, herself a Uefa A candidate coach and current coach with Manchester United Women’s Academy.
Holly has significant experience of coaching within the women’s game at clubs including Blackburn Rovers and with the Jill Scott Academy.
The new Oldham academy will also provide a pathway into our brand new women’s first team, as the club welcomes a new dawn for women’s football within the local area.
Those who join the academy will also receive a free kit bundle including boots, membership to Glo Gym, access to Oldham Athletic men’s home games and support for coaching qualifications.
Do not delay in registering for the open day on Friday 23 February.
If you're aged 16-17 during the 2024/25 season and you want to join this unique programme, email email@example.com including brief details about your footballing experience.
Applications will be received by Female Development Officer, Holly Espie.
