Girls and Women's Football Development Officer Sharon Brownlie's efforts to raise the profile of women's and girls football have resulted in the Essex County F.A. proudly announcing their very first nine-week adult Female Football Beginners' Course, which kicks off in Romford on Tuesday 5th February.
Tutored by an all-female team of coaches, the Course will look to give new or existing players a 'kick-start' into the beautiful game with weekly, one-hour sessions including fun and simple drills and incorporating all the necessary skills required to play football.
Sharon, who was recently handed the task of promoting the sport in Essex' London Boroughs, explained: "This is the very first female adult football project to take place within our London Boroughs and I hope it's going to be a huge success. The sessions are flexible and fun and will hopefully give those who are new to the game a great insight as well as the passion to possibly take things further and join a team."
All sessions will be performed in a friendly and relaxed indoor environment and comfortable footwear and plentiful refreshments are the only requirements of the attendees. Drills and exercises will be aimed at complete beginners, meaning the Course would be suitable for new faces, inexperienced players looking for extra practice and those just wanting to try something new and get fit.
"Awareness is gradually starting to improve," continued Sharon, who works alongside Emma Wake in developing the women's and girls' game in Essex. "My short term targets are initially to offer general support and advice to clubs, coaches, players and schools in those areas, also aiming to help create at least three new girls' teams in the first half of the year through the School-Club Link scheme."
"I'd like to achieve a number of things from the Beginners' Course, including giving female adults the opportunity to take part in football as a form of exercise as well as enabling them to meet new people. It would also be great to provide current players with the opportunity to improve their existing skills and eventually present an opportunity to play for a local team as there isn't a women's side based in Havering at present."
The initial session for those aged 16 or over will take place on Tuesday 5th February 2008 between 7-8pm at Marshalls Park School, Romford, Essex, RM1 4EH. Further session dates are then scheduled for Tuesday 19th and 26th February, the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th March and the 15th and 22nd April, costing just £1 per session. Requests for further information and bookings should be directed to Sharon on (01245) 393074 or via e-Mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
