Arsenal Women are now accepting applications to trial for our Girls Academy (RTC) for the 2019/20 season. Please see below for more information...

Girls Youth Academy (FA Regional Talent Club)

As part of our Arsenal Women FC Academy, we are proud to run an FA Licensed Regional Talent Club (RTC).

Over the years, Arsenal Women FC have seen many young female players come through the ranks and with an increased commitment to support this development, we hope that many more players will progress through the talent pathway to play for both Arsenal Women First team as well as gain International honours.

Current and previous first-team players such as Leah Williamson, Alex Scott and Ava Kuyken have all come through our youth development pathway.

Players in the Academy will receive a full technical coaching programme, S&C programmes, Physio support and education and welfare support from our qualified multi-disciplinary team.

  • U9's train once a week whilst still being able to play for their grassroots club.
  • U10's and U12's will play fixtures in local Charter Standard Boys (Mixed) Leagues
  • U14's and U16's will take part in FA Organised Fixture programmes against other RTC's and also fixtures against Boy's Teams.
  • Our U16's will compete in the Girls FA Youth Cup.
