Also in women's football, similar activities are continuously carried out.

Camps and tours of 5~6 days for boys and girls of U-13/14 are organised three times a year.

The boys' activities are linked with the National Training Centre U-13/14's activities and female players are chosen from regional/ prefectural training centres. Players with high capacities are provided a good environment and coaching and can improve their capacities through friendly rivalry, playing at the highest levels. As for the Training Centres, the aim of this programme is " the individual development" and it is also working on "players' personal independence". Activities off the pitch ( other than football) such as development of logical communication skills and food education are introduced into the curriculum and since the programme start, the strengthening of each generation is implemented through joint camps and matches with same age Korean Selection team, which are held once a year. Moreover, players who are aiming to U-17 World Tournaments, are acquiring a lot of international experience through the participation to AFC's festivals.
