A NEW PARTICIPATION PROGRAMME IN NOTTINGHAMSHIRE SET TO GIVE GIRLS AGED 12-14 YEARS; FUN & SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED IN THE GAME.
With the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 tournament on the horizon we hope the journey of the National team will inspire a number of girls to get involved in the game regardless of what their motivations to play are. With this in mind, the FA & Sport England have come together to create a new and exciting participation programme offer for girls aged 12-14 years.
The Squad Girls Football programme will aim to offer girls fun, relevant and engaging sessions that will allow them to develop themselves as well as their football skills in a safe and inclusive environment. Specifically designed to give the girls a choice and a voice when taking part in the sessions, it also aims to give them the freedom to develop their social identity, become a valued member of a team as well as building their own self-confidence through the fun and flexible approach of the Squad Girls Football programme.
Saturday 7th May, saw two of our club representatives attend Squad Girls Training at the home of football, St. Georges Park with multiple other providers from other areas of the region. We are extremely excited to be supporting these two clubs: Meden Vale Colts & Bagthorpe Athletic FC in developing this programme within their own environments.
We look forward to seeing these Clubs commence their weekly Squad girls’ sessions soon, if you are a parent/ guardian/ carer or a female aged 12-14 years looking to see what it’s all about and “Be a part of the #NottsSQUADs” click the links below.
