The Hampshire FA Girls Centre of Excellence is run by Technical Director, Paul Barton and Centre Manager, Martina Heath.

The U9 development squad train once a week and those who are a part of this can also still play for grassroots teams, U11-U17 squads train for 4 hours a week at venues in Southampton and Alresford with matches being played on a Saturday and the home ground being Wide Lane Sports Ground, Southampton.

The Centre draws on the skills and experience of a variety of people: the coaching, medical, welfare and administrative staff.  Hampshire FA’s Girls' Centre of Excellence is not only committed to the development of the players, but to the development of its staff, to ensure that they are given the best opportunity, in the right environment to have fun, learn and develop and achieve the best that they can be.

Should a talented young girl be unable to attend an FA Girls’ Centre of Excellence due to the travel time and distance, an FA Girls’ Centre of Excellence Director can apply to The FA for special dispensation on the player’s behalf. Further details of what this dispensation entails will be available from your nearest FA Girls’ Centre of Excellence from July 2011.

If you are interested in becoming involved in the Centre as a volunteer or in any of the positions named please contact Martina Heath Martina.Heath@HampshireFA.com
