The Positive Impact Foundation are delighted to announce a partnership with She Believes Academy with immediate effect. She Believes Academy provides weekly football coaching sessions for females aged 6 - 16 years old, offering an inclusive, progressive and fun football programme.

The Foundation will offer operational support to SBA to provide further opportunities for girls to play, as well as explore working in football, understanding a number of different roles and developing life skills for the future.

We will also be expanding our school offer to support female only football initiatives, followed by the launch of a brand new full time female education programme in September 2023.

The partnership will see dedicated teams from both organisations collaborate to create the best platform for aspiring young female football players across Leicestershire and Warwickshire.

The Foundation will encompass the day to day operations, with input from the She Believes Academy team. 

Hear what She Believes Academy Co-Founder, Tony Maisto had to say...

"Building a partnership with Positive Impact Foundation is a huge step forwards for She Believes. Having the collective driving force to push forwards is going to be so positive for young female footballers within the Midlands! I can't wait to see how Leah and the team at the Foundation can continue to grow our vision." 

Our Director, James Armson added...

"We’re really excited to begin a partnership with She Believes. We hope that by merging two dedicated teams together we can improve opportunities for female footballers at all ages across the Midlands. Following the success of the Women's European Championships this year, it's a no brainer that we wanted to be involved in this project and vision!"
