The Girls' England Talent Pathway!

The Girls' England Talent Pathway has been put in place to support the identification and development of those with elite potential, and to ensure that appropriate playing opportunities are in place to enable players to fulfil their developmental needs. The growth of the game over the past 10 years for girls and women has been incredible, both within the domestic and international remit. Due to the ever changing landscape of the game we have reviewed our current infrastructure ensuring that our pathway meets the demands of producing talented players to compete on an international stage.
