At WWSET we are very excited to announce that we now have our very own girl’s Elite and Development Academy (EDA) to mirror what we offer for the boys. The girl’s EDA currently runs U10, U11, U12 and U13 age groups and is a programme which has invited talented players to train with us in order to maximise their playing potential while also competing for their junior clubs at the weekend. The girls will also be given the opportunity to showcase their ability and what they have learned in competitive fixtures against other professional football clubs which are organised throughout school half-terms.
Our primary aim is to create a positive learning environment in which develops players; technically, physically, socially and psychologically at every stage of their development. We also aim to be innovative and inclusive with our coaching techniques in order to maximise the learning of all the players we work with.
Our philosophy is based on the encouragement of ‘technical grooving’ through the repetition of challenging and focused practice, as well as the creation of an environment that encourages freedom to express individuality without fear of failure. We believe that by creating an environment in which a player can express themselves, be positive and have fun; this will have a huge impact and enhance the learning that takes place.
WWSET will play host in the girl’s their first competitive fixture on the 21st December 2016 against Northampton Town FC. Head coach of the girl’s EDA Lewis Bloom had this to say about the fixture organised “This will be a great test for the girls and a wonderful opportunity for them to showcase their hard work and what they’ve learned so far this year in a competitive environment. These fixtures provide a great learning opportunity for the girl’s and they are an important part of their development as players, so I am really looking forward to watching them play and develop as the season continues”.
