SFA launch Regional Performance Hub
 Women's Football SFA News - 9 Feb 2018
The first Women's Regional Performance Hub in the country has been launched in a bid to increase the number of Scottish female players breaking through to the national team.
The Hub in the North is the first of four to be launched throughout 2018, in an initiative led by Scotland Under-17s head coach Pauline MacDonald.
The Hubs are an evolution of the Scottish FA Regional Performance Academy, which played a part in the development of current Scotland National Team players Rachel McLauchlan and captain Rachel Corsie.
The restructure will now see the programme focus on a number of key areas of the game, such as individual technical training and an introduction to strength and conditioning.
It will also feature academic opportunities and a scholarship programme that will work in collaboration with external partners.
Scotland Women's Under-17 head coach Pauline MacDonald told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "We have received overwhelming support from players, parents and club coaches in driving the Scottish FA Girls' and Women's performance pathway forward.
"North Regional Staff, Aberdeen Sports Village and Robert Gordon University have been instrumental to the success of the programme to date and we are all very excited about the potential opportunities moving forward.
"It is fantastic to have Rachel Corsie support the North Hub as she can share her journey and inspire our most talented young players in the region.
"I am extremely excited about the prospect of working together with the players, staff and partners in the region."
Rachel Corsie said: "This is a fantastic initiative to continue to inspire the next generation of players.
"The Academy was part of my development when I was younger but it has come on leaps and bounds since then.
"I've been able to head along and coach the girls and have really enjoyed the experience.
"I know first hand how important it is to undertake an academic programme as well playing football, having achieved an Accountancy degree.
"The fact the programme has an academic element will really help the girls progress and develop."
