Soccerstar Academy are thowing open their doors to female footballers for the first time.
The successful Yaxley-based set-up, run by former professional player and UEFA ‘A’ Licence coach Dom Genovese, is launching a girls’ academy to begin in the new academic year from September, 2018.
The football and education programme allows school-leavers the chance to study for a BTEC Diploma in Sports Level 3 as well as the FA Coaching Certificate Level 1 and will run alongside the long-standing boys’ academy at In2itive Park.
The academy will also field a team in the female British Colleges’ League and Genovese is hopeful the new venture will prove popular.
“There is a real surge in both interest and participation in girls and women’s football at the moment,” said Genovese.
“We feel this is the perfect time to launch a female academy and there is nothing like this in the area at the moment.”
Genovese is also recruiting a new intake of boys for next September. Anyone nterested in joining Soccerstar Academy can contact Genovese on 07768115001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
