Coaches and teachers working within women's and girls football were given a unique opportunity on Monday 2nd March to visit Arsenal's Training Ground at London Colney.
The event was a joint venture between London FA and Arsenal Girls Centre of Excellence. The idea behind this was to allow coaches within the female game to come and learn more about Girls Centres of Excellence. The coaches were given an introduction into the 'Arsenal Way', and the set up at Arsenal.
Coaches were then invited to watch the Under-14 squad train, including the option to watch a goalkeeper training session. The floor was then opened up for a Q & A session with Centre Director, John Bayer; Arsenal Ladies Development Manager, Clare Wheatley and Centre Goalkeeping Coach, Larry Raji.
The evening was a fantastic opportunity for coaches within the female game to learn what a Centre of Excellence is all about and to see what level of player is involved within this set up. London FA's Women's and Girls' Development Officer, Natalie Huntley commented: "It's great to see Arsenal working so closely with the grassroots clubs in the area, and the feedback we've received from the coaches that attended has been extremely positive.
"Hopefully this is an event we can repeat in the future so that grassroots coaches can gain further insight into life at a Centre of Excellence."
