The recent success of the England ladies football team has resulted in football now being the fastest growing and largest team sport for girls in the UK.
This popularity has lead the FA to have girls football as one of its main focus areas, with a target to increase the number of girls teams by 50% by the start of the 2012 Olympics.
Girls football is expanding dramatically year on year and a high number of local grass routes clubs are establishing girls only teams and most local leagues have now either created or are trying to create girls only leagues.
To meet this demand and in an effort to improve the female game of the future, Sawtry Colts FC are introducing a girls only Football Development Centre for girls of 4-8 years in November. This will provide free of charge soccer skill training sessions on a weekly basis.
The establishment of this centre further enhances this FA Charter Standard Development club's position as the leading provider for grass routes girls football in the north of Cambridgeshire.
The centre will allow these younger girls the opportunity develop basic skills in a fun and friendly girls only environment and will provide an ideal route into organised girls football teams when they are old enough.
Produce World is a family owned business growing and packing fruit and vegetables for all the major UK supermarkets. They are committed to making a positive, measurable contribution to the communities in which they operate and are establishing a charity, The Growing Trust, to support local charities and community groups.
Gordon Fairbrother from Produce World commented: "Despite growing demand, opportunities for younger girls to get involved with football in the local area are limited. We think that the Colts initiative is an excellent response and are delighted to be sponsoring the Girls Football Development Centre."
Two squads will train at the centre on a weekly basis commencing in November 2008 and will follow a structured 24-week training program. Each girl will then be individually assessed after each 8-week segment to give them an indication of how they are progressing. Every girl will get an award and certificate after each segment has been completed.
Upon completion of the 24-week schedule the girls will be given the opportunity to join a Sawtry Colts Girls Football squad or re-subscribe to the Girls Football Development Centre.
To allow girls to see if they like football they can come along to a taster session on either 14th or 28th September to give girls an insight into what we do. The taster sessions last 45 minutes and will be free to attend. There are only 12 places per squad available, so early booking is advised.
Anybody interested in attending the Sawtry Colts Girls Football Development Centre you can book a taster session with Steve Purnell on (07964) 496259 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
