Bristol Academy Women's Football Club are developing their extensive community work further by celebrating another key relationship with Bradley Stoke Youth.
Coaches from the BAWFC have already been into the Club and coached the Under-9, Under-10 and Under-12 girls squads. The Club and the Bristol Academy have now teamed up and are providing coaching sessions in the local schools around Bradley Stoke in an effort to promote girls football in the area and to promote the Bradley Stoke Youth girls teams whilst building awareness of the Bristol Academy Women's team.
Bradley Stoke Youth and Bristol Academy Women's Football Club are closely linked with the Gloucestershire FA and are all working hard collectively to develop girls football in the local area. This teamwork will provide the basis for allowing girls the opportunity to play football and to receive quality coaching to further develop their skills while having a fun time. All coaches are FA qualified and FA CRB checked.
Bradley Stoke Youth have three girls squads at present but are looking for opportunities to expand and to increase the number of girls playing football. The Bristol Academy Women's Football Club are supporting the Club to achieve this by providing coaches to run sessions at the Club and at their home site at the Filton College Wise Campus.
Ann Marie Heatherson, Community Ambassador for Bristol Academy, comments: "As part of our engagement with the community, I have been working with many clubs and schools within the region, both to increase the awareness and skills within the female game and also to raise the profile of the BAWFC. We have invested over £1m in staff and resources at our Bristol Academy of Sport base to ensure Bristol continues to offer a pathway for girls to enjoy football and for some girls to progress to play in the BAWFC senior squad some day.You never know, there could be future internationals out there who, in ten years' time, will be playing in the World Cup!"
BAWFC have employed three community ambassadors who, like Ann Marie, are working throughout the region to grow participation rates. The Ambassadors are also busy working on the preparations for the club's launch on Saturday, 19 March from 10.00am, with an exhibition match kicking off at 6.00pm.
