Bristol Academy hosted Vixen Fun Camps and Development Camps over the half term which attracted 238 girls and boys to the Stoke Gifford Stadium.
The Fun Camps are open to girls and boys aged 6-16, whereas the Development Camps are invitational days for girls who attend the Club's Centre of Excellence, Skills Centre or a County FA Player Development Centre.
Bristol Academy's Vixen Camps are run in partnership with Bristol City's Community Trust and are delivered by WSL players Natasha Harding, Lauren Haynes, Angharad James, Vera Bernabe and Georgia Evans who spent Monday - Friday coaching at the camps and were pleased to engage with 156 aspiring young footballers. At £15 per day, the Vixen camps are an affordable way to keep young girls and boys active over the holiday. Easter camp dates will be announced next week.
This year's second round of Development Camps also proved to be very successful, with 82 attending. These camps are aimed to pit players from different programmes in an Elite environment and challenge them in the four corners. BAWFC's Skills Centre, in its third year, was formed by the Club's WSL Ambassador programme to support local players aspiring to better and potentially reach the level to represent a local Centre of Excellence. The session's are led and coached by qualified player ambassadors at the Club, who can provide unique insight into what it takes to perform at the highest level in the game.
COE Technical Director Daniel Tanhai co-ordinates the camps and offered his feedback on the second round of the season: "The most important thing for me as an individual and BAWFC as a community club is that we are doing everything we can to support the development of local talented players in all four corners. We only get so much time with the players at the COE, likewise the SC, with those time frames limiting the experiences we can give our players.
"The Dev Camps are a way of developing the players and challenging them similar to what they might experience at an EPC or International Camp, because after all that is the aim of the game, to produce player's to compete at International Level, and we're doing everything we can to work towards that."
The next round of development camps are to be held wc 26th May and available to all COE/SC and PDC players. For more information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
