An opportunity to participate in a variety of sports and activities to help them develop their sporting and personal skills whilst gaining confidence in a friendly and safe environment.
Girls Only Football Fun Days
Our Girls Only holiday activity will give female players the opportunity to refine their techniques in a safe, secure and enjoyable environment. The activities will allow players to improve all round technical ability whilst having fun and meeting new friends. Players will also have the opportunity should they reach the required level be recommended to one of either the Female PDC or Centre of Excellence programmes run by Essex FA.
Futsal Fun Day
Our Futsal session will enable players to explore the exciting, fast-paced small sided game that is widely played across the world. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football techniques that can be translated into the game. Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development.
