Blackburn Rovers Girls' Football Development Centre

Blackburn Rovers Community Trust have broken new ground by launching an exciting player development centre in 2016 - and it's only for girls!

Every Friday night from 5pm-6pm, girls aged five to seven are welcome to come and take their first steps in the game at the Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre, under the guidance of our FA-qualified and DBS-cleared coaches.

There's a clear passion for the girls' game in our area, as evidenced by the huge numbers of primary school teams that take part in the special introductory tournaments that we host. Why not build on that initial excitement by bringing your daughters or granddaughters along to learn the best of the basics before they progress to regular team football?

Priced at just £3 per session, we're excited at the prospect of helping the next generation of female starts to receive the best entry-level coaching Blackburn can offer.
