About Us

Welcome to the home of Future Lioness - Football coaching for girls aged 8-16 based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Future Lioness provides an exciting opportunity for girls to get involved in football.

Training sessions are held weekly, run by qualified, experienced and professional coaches. We are passionate about developing girls football. The aim of these sessions is to provide girls with all the necessary key skills to progress their footballing abilities, develop their self-confidence and social skills and allow them to build friendships through football.

Sessions will focus on a variety of technical ball skills, movement and passing skills and physical skills. Sessions will be fun and engaging whilst enabling girls to take their game to the next level. Future Lioness provides opportunities for additional, personalised training, in support of grassroots football clubs.

Founder Jon Maloney has been involved in women's and girl's football for over 10 years. Having already setup a successful girl's player development centre (PDC) at a professional football club, Jon and the team are passionate about providing opportunities for young female footballers. Jon also assists female footballers who want to pursue the student athlete scholarship route to America

It is our mission to champion girls football by providing young female players with access to a supportive environment with excellent coaching  and facilities to enable them to build both their self-esteem and self-confidence within the game.
