About the Academy

South London Girls Football Academy is here to provide accessibility to professional and holistic football coaching for youth girls in South London.

Girls of all ages and abilities should have an option to be able to play football within an environment that allows them to enjoy and explore the game first and foremost. 

They should also then be challenged technically, physically, tactically, socially and psychologically so they can grow as a player and a person. This should be considered and structured so the players can optimise the benefits they receive from playing.

South London Girls Football Academy offers this by providing a periodised curriculum that fosters individual development for all players.

Jamie, Academy Director

Academy Director, Jamie, has been a professional coach for over 10 years. He first began working in girls football in the US, where it is the number one sport for girls, and coached players of all ages from beginner to those playing in National League teams. He then led the Girls Program for an Academy in Singapore that has seen a number of the girls play for Singapore Women`s National Team, all before the age of 18. 

Upon a return to the UK, he worked with the Dorset FA coaching the Under 14s at the Girls Talent Centre as part of the National pathway. Players within the group represented the South West regional squad and some were part of the England National Youth Camp.

Jamie now intends to use his experience in Girls football to provide a comprehensive development program for players of all ages and abilities. They will play, enjoy, develop.
