Schoolgirls get inspired in Leeds

Schoolgirls get inspired in Leeds - 4 Jul 2013 - Women's Football NewsThe FA Girls' Football Festival, in association with Continental Tyres, visited Leeds Trinity University on Wednesday 3rd July. 
 
Over 260 girls, from 40 local school teams, took part in the free programme aimed at encouraging girls to get involved in the game. The event was organised through the support of West Riding FA, the FA Tesco Skills team, and Leeds Trinity University who provided the venue.
 
The participants, aged from 9-13 years old, were accompanied by FA WSL player Millie Bright from Doncaster Rovers Belles, Beth Millgate, ex-Leeds United Girls' Centre of Excellence and now of Arsenal Reserves, Emma Coates from Leeds United and freestyler Charlotte Lade.
 
The players delighted the youngsters by taking part in the coaching sessions. They also signed autographs, took part in photography, and offered top tips and advice on how to get involved in football. Charlotte Lade, one of the world's leading professional female football freestylers, showed off her amazing football tricks and skills and then pupils were treated to a freestyle coaching session. The inspired girls also had the chance to ask their burning questions in a Q&A.
 
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) and mini matches inside an inflatable pitch. There was also two female FIFA referees, Lucy May and Jane Simms, who delivered practical mini whistler activities.
 
Children had the chance to pose with the FA WSL, the Cyprus Cup and the Continental Cup trophies. To top it off, the loveable FA WSL mascot Berry and Leeds United Ladies mascot Lucas the Kop Cat made a guest appearance causing much excitement amongst the pupils when they took part in a mascot 'dance off'.
