100FC In Focus - Vicky Park Rangers
100FC is a game-changing female coaching programme, launched by London FA with significant investment from Wembley National Stadium Trust (WNST).
In line with The FA’s national strategy for women and girl’s football, 100FC is a three-year project to recruit and train 100 new female coaches per year through a funding coaching pathway.
For females aged 16 and over across London, coaches will be supported in their first steps in coaching, including funding for coaching courses and coaching placements across a range of organisations.
One club that has benefited from 100FC and the development of coaches through the programme is Vicky Park Rangers.
Based in East London, Vicky Park Ranges was formed by Taner Baycanli in order to give girls the opportunity to play football in a safe and fun environment, enabling players to have fun with their friends whilst being part of a great team.
With over 50 girls attending weekly sessions on a regular basis in the first year, the club currently has Under-8, Under-10 and Under-11 teams competing in the Capital Girls League.
The club accommodates girls of all abilities and has a pathway within the club to progress. Vicky Park Rangers focuses on football for fun, football for competition and football for performance.
Students studying at UCFB headed down to meet with founder Taner and coach Jo Burr, who is one of the many coaches involved in 100FC.
