Today we hosted a celebration ceremony for our all-girls football programme that has been running for 6 months in Salford.
The girls designed their own sports programme, did a first aid workshop and will gain a coaching qualification at the end. The girls will then use all these skills they have learnt to deliver football sessions for young people at a Primary School.
11 girls were presented with a certificate of achievement from the Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester, Tony Lloyd.
Victoria Lowe, Programme Manager for RFF said:
“We are really proud of the girls’ achievements on this programme so far, they’ve worked very hard to design their own all girls football programme! UTC doesn’t have a girl’s football team, so this is the first of many hopefully! With the skills and the knowledge that they have gained over the past 6 months, they’re going to be taking part in a work placement opportunity with a local primary school, coaching younger children multi sports! The girls are incredible role models, who will inspire the next generation of youth leaders – well done!”
