Sheffield United Girls RTC is one of Thirty-Two RTCs spread across the country which is an FA initiative and forms part of the FA Girls Talent Pathway.

Sheffield United Girls Regional Talent Club (RTC) is an enhanced coaching centre for Girls at U10, U12, U14 and U16 age groups, and allows players identified as having elite potential and the opportunity to access appropriate levels of coaching and support.

The Regional Talent Club (RTC) initiative aims to support the identification, development, and progression of players with the potential and aspiration to play for the England Women's Senior team.

Normally access to Sheffield United Girls RTC is gained through a trial process held in June, unfortunately due to Coivid 19 outbreak this will not be taking place in June.

We are pleased to announce instead of our trials we will be delivering 'Open Training Sessions' for our RTC in the 2020/21 season for girls aged 8-16.

Sessions will be open to girls aged 8 (born 31st August 2012) to 16 (born up to 1st September 2004)

The process will be open training sessions with dates to be advised once the UK Government announce we can resume training.
