The Women’s Super League Academy is on the lookout for host families, couples or singles in Solihull to support our elite young players who need to live away from home to undertake their football training at Blues.
Host families would be required to provide homely accommodation throughout the season. The actual accommodation needed is a double bedroom with WIFI connection. Access to public transport and local amenities is desirable. The host families we are looking for would preferably be situated within a three-mile radius of Solihull and/or within reasonable travelling distance by bus or train.
Our placements vary from short-term to long term, with some specialist accommodation, offering short notice limited accommodation for trialists and their families, or holiday cover for other host families.
Host families would be required to guide our young players by teaching them basic independent living skills such as washing, cooking, cleaning after themselves alongside self-care skills, for example, how to book medical appointments. The host family will be required to provide meals in line with the basic nutrition guide provided by the Academy.
Hosts are encouraged to include young players in family life, and players are expected to respect their host family’s way of life in return for being accepted as a family member. Both hosts and young players are given guidelines explaining what is expected of each of them. All our host families are regularly visited and inspected by us. Additionally, they formally undertake to protect and care for the young players in their charge.
