Girls Centre Trials 2022

Phase 1 Trials - Sunday 10th July 2022

We are delighted to announce the trial dates for next season’s Devon FA Girls Advanced Coaching Centre (2022-23 season)

Our trials take place across two phases, with phase 1 being for ‘new’ players not part of our Centre programme this season (2021-22). At Phase 2, players already part of the Centre (from the 2021-22 season) will join those players invited back from the Phase 1 trials. Initial player selections for the 2022-23 season will be made following Phase 2 trials.

Our programme runs August through to May with training taking place weekly at Ivybridge CC on Monday evenings. We are supportive of club football in that players continue playing with their local club which ensures regular/weekly fixtures in addition to our own fixture programme which runs mostly during school holidays and mid-week evenings (to avoid as far as possible the clash with club fixtures).
