The aim of the Lincoln City Football Academy for Women is to help young players maximise their potential in football, education and life. It puts well-being and personal development at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to develop well-rounded individuals as well as high-quality players. We will provide expert services, support and advice to academy players and parents, and every player should enjoy and value their academy experience.
We want our players to be technically excellent and tactically astute independent decision-makers on and off the ﬁeld, equipped to be successful in the game.
All academy players will study towards a Level 3 BTEC National Extended Diploma in Sport (equivalent to 3 A-Levels). BTEC classes will be a mixture of theory and practical sessions in order to deliver course content. Supported by North Kesteven Academy, the qualification is split into 14 units, which are assessed through written reports, presentations, discussions, case studies, workbooks, practical assessments and external exams. There are a variety of units that will be studied including:
Application of Fitness Testing
Coaching for Performance
Practical Sport Performance
When accepted into the Lincoln City Football Academy for Women, players will be enrolled on a 2-year scholarship, which provides a full-time football development and education programme. Subsequently, this programme is an alternative to college or 6th Form and is in partnership with North Kesteven Academy, therefore, all hours are built into an academic timetable Monday to Friday.
