Do you dream of playing for Northern Ireland?

Were you, or someone you know, inspired by the UEFA Women’s Under 19 Championship?

Do you think you have what it takes to be the next Simone Magill or Louise McDaniel? Do you dream of wearing the green shirt of Northern Ireland on the world stage?

Northern Ireland’s Women’s football is growing fast but we are always on the look-out for new and emerging talent.

The Irish FA is inviting female footballers aged between 11 and 15 to come along and be part of the Association’s Girl’s Regional Excellence Programme and step onto our exciting Player Pathway.

Our Regional Excellence Centres are based in four locations across Northern Ireland – The Dub Belfast, Ulster University Jordanstown, Scroggie Road Limavady and the Mid-Ulster Sports Arena Cookstown. 

Training is held on a Tuesday night between 6pm and 9pm, with different time slots for different age groups.

If you enjoy playing and wish to improve your skills with top class coaches, we would love to hear from you!

To register your interest, contact our National Women’s Manager, Alfie Wylie on

So come along and maybe one day soon you could be playing for Northern Ireland!
