Jarmo hosts workshop for WWPL clubs
 Women's Football News 26 Jul 2012
Representatives of eight out of twelve Welsh Women's Premier League clubs took part in a workshop aimed at women's football coaches in Cardiff. 
Coaches from Aberystwyth Town, Caernarfon Town, Cardiff City FC, Newcastle Emlyn, Northop Hall, Port Talbot Town, Swansea City and Wrexham Ladies clubs attended the workshop, run by National women's team manager Jarmo Matikainen.
The morning session gave the coaches the opportunity to observe a training session of the Wales women's Under-19 squad taken by Athletic Development Coach Sam Huggins and senior player turned coach Loren Dykes, under the guidance of Matikainen. The Under-19 squad is currently in camp for two friendly matches against Estonia, the first of which they won 5-0 the previous night at Ynys Park, Ton Pentre. These matches form part of the preparation for next year's UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship finals which Wales will take part in as hosts.
This session was followed by discussions on match analysis and how the best practices of elite international women's football can be incorporated into Welsh domestic football, with Matikainen sharing the benefit of his experience at UEFA and FIFA final tournaments, which he has attended both as a coach and a technical expert. Some of the club representatives also shared their own European experiences. The coaches then had the chance to put the theory into practice when watching that afternoon's Olympic Women's Football match between Great Britain and New Zealand.
Following the workshop Matikainen shared his thoughts on its success: "The day was very good, very useful and very important. You have to give credit to all the coaches and clubs who attended and showed that they take care of Welsh women's football and Welsh players. The feedback was very positive and I found the day extremely rewarding."
This workshop took place as part of the "Pro Women's Top Football 2016" Project, which the FAW is running in order to strengthen the links between domestic and international football in Wales, thanks to funding from the UEFA Women's Football Development Project. Since the start of the project earlier this year, Jarmo has already travelled around Wales visiting the Welsh Women's Premier League clubs and hosted a coaching workshop in Wrexham to coincide with the UEFA Women's Championship qualifying match between Wales and Israel in June. Further events are being planned early in the new season.
