Bristol Inner City Girls Academy in partnership with Horfield Leisure Centre ‘Everyone Active’.  This Academy caters for the female talent of Bristol, and although we encourage Girls to participate alongside Boys – and vice versa – at all locations, our Horfield Leisure Centre Partnership exclusively caters for a Girls specific Academy as well.

Bristol Inner City: We are a not for profit organisation whose passionate founders are from humble upbringing and are looking to pay forward rather than take. As a result we hope communities, grassroots clubs, coaches and players benefit from our holistic player centred programme, which brings together otherwise separated talent.

Our Girls Academy caters for players U5-U12 (Reception – Year 7). If you would like to get involved you will need to register as a Coach or Player NOW. You will receive an email invitation with further details including your start date/time.

Premier League Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) Academy Coaching Syllabus. 

Bristol Inner City Football Academy has produced a programme of development that replicates the objectives of EPPP represented by a 300+ page document. From this Bristol Inner City coaches create a player lead environment of self discovery with fun and enjoyment at its core. Therefore we help players, parents and coaches to discover that although there are many similar situations encountered in football, no one answer exists, only a best guess from a multitude of options.

Football is the most actively participated in sport for Female Athletes. Bristol Inner City are working tirelessly in collaboration and with guidance from sports Governing bodies to ensure we offer a pathway for Female Athletes with a passion for football. Take inspiration from the pathfinders below and start your journey NOW

“I worked on my weaknesses and made them my strengths.” Sydney Leroux – USA women’s world cup winner.

“I was one of very few girls at a time where females playing football wasn’t the normal thing to do. It’s much better nowadays and I can only see it progressing from here, which is really exciting.” Toni Duggan – England women’s football team

“Coaching alone does not produce learning.”
John Allpress, The FA. “Develop the person, develop the player”

“Young players need freedom of expression to develop as creative players…
They should be encouraged to try skills wihout fear of failure.”
Arsene Wenger

In line with FA Equality and Diversity Bristol Inner City Football Academy promotes inclusive participation and actively encourages girls to train and compete with boys – and vice versa – if the young player is comfortable and confident to do so. However, as per FA guidance, we also cater for a Girls specific environment, which supports recognised Equality, Sports Science and Coaching practices within the development of Social, Biological, Psychological and Physiological accepted differences between sexes.
