Women's and Girls' Football


CACT delivers girls only sessions across Greenwich and Kent.

Delivered by a CACT coaches the sessions delivered follow CACT's designed curriculum, which is a structured and progressive scheme aiming to develop children’s core movement and football skills. It is designed to create maximum enjoyment and involvement, while also helping young footballers to realise their full potential. All sessions are delivered over 12 to 16 weeks three times a year. If any of the young female players show signs of great technical ability, good game understanding and excellent movement skills, they may be asked to attend our CACT girls development centre or emerging talent centre and academy team trials delivered within the Charlton Athletic Women setup.

The onward progression following your journey with the CACT girls sessions – is to be offered a place on our Post 16 Football and Education programme. A full time fully funded programme with excellent pathways and opportunities.
