About the ETC

In July 2022, the Kent FA was one of only five County FAs to be awarded funding to start a new girls' Emerging Talent Centre (ETC), which will see the number of young female players engaged in FA programmes across the county rise by the end of the 2023-24 season.

The Kent ETC is currently for girls playing in under 14s, under 15s and under 16s football. Our ambition is to provide additional elite coaching with the ambition to signpost players to the FA Player Pathway - Discover My Talent.
