Big turnout takes part at Brighton - 23 Jun 2013 - Women's Football NewsThe FA Girls' Football Festival in association with Continental Tyres visited TAKEPART 2013, Preston Park, Brighton on Saturday 22 June. 
More than 200 girls, new to the game and regular players, took part in the free programme aimed at encouraging girls to get involved in the game. The event was organised through the support of the Sussex FA and was part of the launch day of the Brighton and Hove City Council TAKEPART 2013 Festival of Sport & Physical Activity, which features a range of free sporting activities in the Park for all ages and abilities.
The participants, aged from 5-17 years old, were accompanied by Welsh international and FA WSL player Angharad James, from Bristol Academy. Brighton and Hove Albion Women players, who play in the National Southern Division, and Chichester Ladies were also in attendance.
Players delighted the youngsters by taking part in photography, signing autographs and offered top tips and advice on how to get involved in football. The children also took part in coaching sessions, and a Q&A was held to give an insight into the life of a female footballer. Female referees from Sussex County FA discussed their experiences and how they started their refereeing journey.
The format of the day was fun and active, combining football, lifestyle and music. The festival was led by FA approved coaches and activities included skills and drills, interactive games (target shots, speed cage, batak boards), mini matches inside an inflatable pitch and the ContiWarmUp Programme - the newest endorsed coaching programme by the FA. Girls also had the chance to pose with the FA WSL and Cyprus Cup trophies. In addition, the loveable FA WSL mascot Berry the bear and Brighton and Hove Albion W.F.C mascot Sally the Seagull were in attendance and there was hair braiding and face painting to add to the festival atmosphere.
