The Ghana Football Association (GFA) as part of its new policies, has approved the commencement of the Women’s Juvenile League by the various Regional Football Associations effective the 2021/2022 season.
This arrangement by the Ghana Football Association is in relation to its player development pathway for the women’s game and as a way of fostering the inclusiveness of young women in sports. Whereas recruiting women talents at the national level is always burdensome, this new Policy is aimed at identifying more talents at the grassroots level for the purpose of the senior side.
Apparently, the Association currently have the Women’s Premier League and the Women’s FA Cup managed at the national level and the Regional Division Two and Three Leagues played at the Regional Football Association level.
Not quite long after GFA had partnered with UEFA in training about thirty (30) U-15 Girls Coaches for the 10 football Regions, it also pledged to continue to encourage more women and girls into football administration including but not limited to female coaches, female players, female administrators, and female medics.
It is obviously significant to note that currently, the Women’s Premier League and Women’s FA Cup matches are all being officiated by Women Referees trained by Women Instructors.
The development was announced on Wednesday following an Executive Council meeting at the GFA headquarters in Accra and was released by the Association’s Communication Department.
