Opportunity from the Football Association

08th December 16 by Sue Beswick

Girlguiding has been offered a fantastic opportunity from the national Women’s Football Association for Members of The Senior Section and Leaders to attend a free two day course at the English Football Association’s National Centre, the inspirational St Georges Park, in Burton-upon- Trent on the weekend of 4-5 March 2017 and to take home £500 of free football equipment and resource cards.

Following the training, Leaders will be encouraged to use their new knowledge and experiences to deliver football activities with local Brownies and Rainbows in our April 2017 National Girls’ Football Week.

All costs will be paid for by the FA and UEFA, including mileage or standard class public transport, accommodation and meals.

This opportunity is open to 16 Members of the Senior Section and / or Leaders (+1 reserve) aged 16+ from each Region.

Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Additional guidance has been provided by The FA Group: As we are always looking to be inclusive of and sensitive to girls and women from different ethnic backgrounds, faiths, ages, sexual orientations and with disabilities, we hope these places can be reflective of your communities.

If you would like to be considered please email Sue Beswick no later than 30th December –  suebeswick@aol.com
