The Devon ACC provides the opportunity for the most talented players in the County and surrounding areas to progress through the female player pathway. For the elite players within the Devon ACC, there is also the opportunity to go on and represent the South West Regional Excellence Camp on five specially designed residential weekends, with the best players from the other five ACC's in the South West region. And for those excelling regionally, there is the chance to be selected for FA National Performance Camps, and ultimately, England squads. We have currently got several players at the Centre who are involved at these levels.
Still a relatively new format, the ACC allows players to remain with their grassroots clubs in addition to attending training with the Devon FA Girls' ACC. This has proved hugely popular with clubs and players and we have recruited a number of new players during the past 2 seasons that otherwise may not have been at the Centre.
Training will run from mid August 2016 - May 2017 on Monday evenings between 6:30-8:30pm at Ivybridge Community College, led by a team of highly qualified and extremely experienced coaches, who have all been involved with female football for many years. Training sessions are structured carefully to ensure they are appropriate for each age group and so that the players have the best opportunity to develop as players.
Throughout the season, we will play fixtures against the other 5 ACC's in the South West. These fixtures have been designed so that they do not clash with local grassroots club fixtures, and will generally take place mid-week during school holiday's.
