Beginners Course arrives with a bang!
 Women's Football News 8 Feb 2008
Ladies from Havering and its surrounding boroughs made a grand entrance at Marshalls Park School this week as the Essex County F.A. began its very first Female Football Beginners Coaching sessions.
Up to thirty females attended the one-hour session held in the school's indoor gym. The Course, led by ECFA Women's and Girls' Development Officer Sharon Brownlie, included various fun games and activities which were delivered with and without the ball.
The aim of the weekly sessions, which will last for a total of nine weeks, is to introduce new females to the Beautiful Game as well as helping those inexperienced players to improve their existing skills. If the project is successful, the ECFA and partners Havering Council intend to continue the sessions as well as possibly forming a new ladies team for the future.
Sharon was overjoyed at the triumph of the debut event, explaining: "To have thirty females at the first session was absolutely amazing and what was even greater to see was the variety of people we attracted. The Course is open to females aged sixteen-plus and we had a huge range of ages as well as abilities which helped to make it an enjoyable experience for all."
"You could say football is the new aerobics," was the enthusiastic statement from one of the more mature participants, Frances Smith. Having attended the first session, Frances added: "I suffer from a knee problem but I still enjoyed getting involved in the physical sections of the Course, even though I have only just got back from a skiing holiday!
"There were a fair few youngsters taking part but the general spread amongst the ages present was good. It must have been difficult for the organisers to know what activities to put on as it was such a new concept, but it's something different for the young females to get involved in. The potential for mums to get active could also prove vital for passing their knowledge of the game down to their children at an early age."
The next session will take place on Tuesday 19th February between 7pm-8pm at Marshalls Park School, Romford, RM1 4EH, costing just £1 per session. This course is available to females aged sixteen-plus and further session dates have been agreed for 26th February, the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th March and the 15th and 22nd April. To book a place on this Workshop, or for further information, please contact Sharon Brownlie on (01245) 393074 or e-mail sharon.brownlie@essexfa.com.
