To support this further, Birmingham FA will be writing a local strategy to ensure the FA objectives are achieved at a local level.
This is an exciting time for female football across Birmingham FA and we want to get your views and opinions on how this looks so that we can further develop this growing area of the game as much as possible.
Through the strategy we will be looking for ideas and suggestions on six key areas:
Growth - Double the number of teams playing football
Retention – Support teams to transition through formats, and compete in both traditional and recreational environments
Talent – Support talented players to progress up the player pathway
Workforce – Double the number of female referees and coaches
Communication – Increase the presence of female football in the county and on the OFA website
Partnership and Investment – Increasing the relationships we have with local partners
There has never been a more exciting time for Women and Girls’ football and we have two surveys for you to have your say and influence our plans going forward:
Female Football - Players for female players and Female Football – Workforce for all coaches & referees involved in the female game.
Female Football - Players
Female Football - Workforce
We’re looking to hear the thoughts and ideas of as many people in our community as possible so that we can tailor the way we work to meet your needs. Your contributions will actively help to shape the future of Women and Girls’ football in our County up to and beyond 2020.
The closing date to take part in the survey has now passed.
