About Us

We want to provide professional, UEFA qualified coaching for young female players aged 4-14 that would like to develop their game, outside of school or club football, so they can fulfil their potential without having the need of being selected into a very slim talent pathway model.

We do this by executing detailed session plans within a periodized curriculum designed to develop the technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social traits of all players within the academy.

This has been designed by Academy Director, Jamie, who has worked with young female players for 10 years and from beginner to youth international level over the 1000’s of hours youth coaching experience he has.

We welcome all new players to a free taster session to begin their journey and allow us to show you what we are able to offer.

To attend a free taster session please complete a registration form on the join page.

Southwark – Lewisham – Greenwich – Lambeth

Players from: Camberwell, Peckham, Catford, Sydenham, Lee, Clapham, Dulwich, New Cross, Deptford, Brixton, Bermondsey, Lewisham, Greenwich, Charlton, Elephant & Castle, Walworth, Waterloo

SLGFA is excellent. Jamie and Shantol provide engaging and fun coaching sessions. My daughter struggles with attention (like many 6 years olds) but they keep her interested and her skills have progressed more than I could have imagined, all while having fun with a great group of girls who's love of football really shows.

We signed up our daughter to the academy to explore and give football a try. The coaches have fostered an environment for her to learn and thrive. The encouraging attention to technical skills, guidance, and atmosphere make her want to come back every week. She has fun at every session!

Since training with SLGFA it has boosted my daughter's confidence and improved her skills. It has had a positive impact on her wellbeing and time management. The coaches are very welcoming, supportive and give lots of advice and guidance.

My daughter age 11, joined SLGFA 4 months ago and she absolutely loves it! Although she was quite nervous to begin with coach Jamie and Shantol have been very welcoming and encourages team building which has been a great help.My daughter has now growing in confidence each week as she takes seriously the feedback received from coach Jamie in the areas identified where she can improve further and also acknowledgement when she has done really well - this is also shown to each team member. My daughter is able to feel free to share her passion to play and learn football with her own age and slightly older team mates and gets to learn and enhance her football skills and have fun.My daughter has already decided that she would like to sign up for further sessions!Highly recommended!
