Exeter City Community Trust offers a range opportunities for girls to be involved in football either as part of girls only or mixed sessions, including holiday courses and regular weekly sessions, such as Grecian Wildcats.
We are also proud to be a part of the Premier League Girls Programme delivered in partnership with The Football Association, which aims to provide opportunities for females aged 11 and over to take part in football in a community setting.
For participants who wish to progress in the game, we aim to create a player pathway with local community clubs to provide longer term participation. Our current programmes include partnerships with local grassroots clubs, King's College Taunton, Exeter College and Exeter City Ladies; providing a range of opportunitites for female players to become a part of the football community.

Following our initial open trial session on Thursday 30th March 2017, the Girls Development Centre ran as a pilot programme from mid-April to late June to create a platform to test logistics and gain feedback moving forward to the 2017-18 season from September onwards.
Having had a successful 2017-18 season, the Centre now looks to continue it's success into it's second season, commencing on Thursday 13th September 2018, at the Cliff Hill Training Ground.
