Football is the top female sport in the county with players playing in Kent FA affiliated leagues, recreational and cup competitions.
Kent is one of the biggest counties for female participation, with teams playing in competitive youth league football, two Girls County Cups and Wildcats Football Sessions.
The Kent FA development team are here to help you with matters relating to leagues, team development, school club link projects, taster sessions and club meetings - all to ensure the development of Girl’s football continues within the County.

Kent FA runs a Girls Play Development Centre, sponsored by Kent Reliance. This runs from September until March each football season, and supports the development of talented girls with the aim of producing players for the FA Regional Talent Centres, as well as improving the standard of Kent Grassroots Football. This covers U9s, U11s, U13s and Goalkeepers.
Regional Talent Centres are run in conjunction with the FA, and in Kent are based at Gillingham FC, Charlton Athletic FC and Millwall FC. These are designed to create opportunities for girls to progress up the Football Talent Pathway into regional and national football camps and teams.
Goals for Girls are a series of football festivals run across the season for U7 and U8 girls to play in fun and friendly fixtures. These are led by the KGLFL and supported by Kent FA.
