Girls Football Scholarships are up for grabs

Inspire Suffolk are pleased to announce the launch of their very first 'Education and Football Scholarship' programme for 16-18 year old girls. On the back of their success with their current scholarship programme for boys and the continued development within the women’s game, Inspire Suffolk are keen to offer girls the opportunity to progress their academic development whilst receiving ‘elite’ coaching on a daily basis.

This brand new scholarship for girls will offer 16-18 year olds the chance to work towards a BTEC Level 3 Extended diploma in Sport (equivalent to 3 A Levels) whilst playing 11 a-side football at a competitive National level and train full-time with our professional coaches.

An open training and information day on Friday 1st April will be held from 10am until 12noon for any Year 11 girls wishing to carry on with their education whilst continuing to play the game they love when they leave school in the summer of 2016.
