The Leeds United Foundation currently have over 1,800 young females participating within football programmes and they are working hard to stay in touch with each of them whilst they are unable to deliver the weekly sessions.

The club’s official charity have a female pathway system that begins with participation focused programmes, which is centred around getting young girls involved in football, and finishes with elite specific talent groups - otherwise known as the Girls Academy.

Each element within the programme caters for different levels of ability with a real focus on developing a range of areas that includes skill level, confidence, motivation, teamwork and much more.

During the COVID-19 pandemic the coaches are keeping in touch with the aspiring footballers and their families through a number of online platforms, hosting weekly catch-up video sessions, being on hand to answer any questions, setting challenges, introducing new skills and completing online progress reports.

Here are the various football programmes currently being delivered:
