Premier League Girls Football
The Premier League Girls Football programme aims to provide more opportunities for females to get involved and take part in sport!
This national programme is delivered in partnership with The Football Association (The FA) and using professional clubs, like Plymouth Argyle FC, provides a variety of sessions to a whole range of girls and women.
Working with local communities we are creating pathways within the sport for participants who want to thrive and progress, furthermore delivering sessions for females who just want to get involved for the enjoyment and to stay fit and healthy. Whatever the drive or need we aim to give more opportunities for girls to get involved within football!
The two main objective of the programme are as follows:
- To increase the number of women and girls playing football on a regular basis
- To increase the opportunities for women and girls to develop skills and confidence and progress within the pathway as a player, coach or official
Argyle Community Trust is currently running 12 PL Girls Football sessions, in and around Plymouth, based in schools, colleges, universities and community venues. These new opportunities have gained over 350 new girls getting involved within the sport this year (December 2016), with our staff wanted to further increase this number and advance peoples knowledge of the sport as a whole, not just to play the game. All our sessions are delivered by professional Argyle Community Trust coaches, with the attitude of wanting to develop the girl’s game locally and nationally.
For any information on this programme regarding current sessions and/or how to get involved within girls football please contact our PL Girls Officer, Bow Jackson via email, email@example.com or call 01752 562561 Ext. 4.
