OUR GOALS, REACH & TACTICS
Our vision is to provide an accessible and inclusive Lioness Talent Pathway to identify and confirm potential talent. Ensuring we supply England Teams with enough quality and depth of players to enable England to consistently win a Major Tournament.
Our mission is to leave no stone un-turned when it comes to finding future talent across England.
We have a team of five Talent Technical Coaches whose job it is to develop strategic and creative ideas to help find and develop players regardless of their playing environment.

We deliver across six Key Pillars including;
- Developing Key STAKEHOLDER PARTNERSHIPS both Locally and Nationally that can help us widen our reach.
