Rotherham United Community Sports Trust are looking to increase participation of girls in grass roots football following a grant from the Awards For All scheme.
The Trust received £10,000 which will be spent on trying to engage BME girls into football through links with local schools. The coaching sessions will be delivered in the Rotherham North and South area assemblies, with some participants having the opportunity of watching the FA Women's Cup Final in May, at Derby County's Pride Park Stadium.
Any girls who show interest to develop football skills further could progress onto local FA Charter football clubs.
"We are delighted with the award of the grant and we are very excited about this upcoming project," said Rotherham United's Community Sports Trust Manager Dale Spiby.
"The project is in its early stages but very soon we are looking at working with the local schools of Rotherham and moving towards an increased participation in local girls football."
The project links with the FA's and locally at County Level, the Sheffield & Hallamshire FA`s move to increase participation through the Strategy for Women's and Girls Football which is looking to get more women and girls involved in the game.
Further details of the scheme will be announced shortly. For any enquiries please contact Dale Spiby on (07961) 071987.
