AVIVA Soccer Sisters attracting record numbers
The FAI and AVIVA have teamed up to offer free football camps this Easter to girls aged between 6 and 14 and as well as having the opportunity to improve their football skills all participants will also receive a limited edition Aviva Soccer Sisters jersey.
A number of free introductory coaching courses for parents and volunteers and a range of football blitzes will also be delivered across the country in a bid to grow the game at all levels.
Speaking at the launch earlier this month, Sue Ronan, Head of Women’s Football with the FAI, said; “The AVIVA Soccer Sisters Camps have played a significant part in the growth of our game over the past number of years. The camps provide young girls with the opportunity to play in a fun, safe environment, something that is very important at that age and which helps to nurture a love for the game.
"This year we aim to attract around 6,000 girls to the camps, with many going on to join their local club and becoming the future of women’s football in Ireland.”
Over a third of the camps are already booked out with record numbers to date. Camp places are limited and booking is only available online at www.soccersisters.ie
