Following a successful collaboration with the University of Hertfordshire (UoH) Futsal team, Bloomsbury Football Foundation is proud to announce our partnership with the UoH women’s football programme. We look forward to helping the UoH ladies to dominate the BUCS Premier Division, and to assume their rightful place as the best women’s university side in the land!
As in the case of all our partnerships, we’ll be providing UoH with a wide range of services. Most notably, we’ll be sending our finest coaches to provide three sessions a week: two football-focused, and one aimed at increasing strength and conditioning. There will also be opportunities for Futsal-specific services for those players who wish to exploit our existing links to UoH’s Futsal programme. Throughout the entire process, we will be offering financial support to those who need it, allowing all of these promising young athletes to reach their full potential.
The UoH Women’s Football teams will also receive free gym, physio, and strength and conditioning sessions. They will also be offered a variety of career-advancing opportunities through Bloomsbury: notably the chance to spend some time working in marketing, administration, or other off-pitch professional areas. These opportunities for wide-ranging personal development - professional, academic and athletic - wills stand the UoH women in good stead for their post-graduation futures.
The strengthened relationship between UoH and Bloomsbury will also provide our very own Bloomsbury with a pathway from club football into university sport. Importantly, the two will not be mutually exclusive: we have ensured that UoH’s training sessions and games will be scheduled on different days from club fixtures, ensuring that players are able to benefit from both.
