Girls’ Excel

The latest instalment of the York City Knights Girls Player Development Programme, which was initially launched in 2019, is here and aims to help every player reach their potential.

This is done through open access training sessions, with the following additions;

  • introduction to strength and conditioning
  • nutrition
  • lifestyle advice

The girls programme is aligning to offer the same delivery as the boys because as a club we believe that the women and girls’ game is deserving of all the same opportunities as the men’s game. It is open to players aged 11-16 and will be run in blocks of coaching for the following age groups; u12’s, u14’s and u16’s. And all those who take part have the opportunity to be recognised for part of the new York City Knights invitational talent pathway RISE.

The Excel programme – which uses the same state-of-the-art York St John University sports facilities used by Knights men’s and women’s teams – forms part of the York City Knights’ player pathway programme and previous incarnations of the programme have seen girls going on to represent the women’s senior squad.

The programme is free, but booking is essential!

We are always seeking sponsorship that can help us assist with this programme. For more information or please get in touch.
