Brighton & Hove Albion Female Academy
The new academy will play a prominent role in the women and girls set-up at Brighton & Hove Albion Women Football Club, bridging the gap between the Girls’ Centre of Excellence and the senior women’s set-up.
The football specific part of the programme will take place at the club’s new state-of-the-art training ground in Lancing, while the education will be delivered by Worthing College, who will offer a wide range of BTEC and A-Level qualifications. This academic pathway will fit around the training schedule, offering the best possible combination of a joint football and education programme.
Starting from the September 2015 intake, we will be offering the option of accommodation with local families to talented female players who otherwise could not attend the Academy due to distance, giving them an opportunity to reach their full potential within an Albion elite sporting environment.
