Girls get inspired at Festival
 Women's Football News 30 Sep 2014
Girls get inspired at Festival - 30 Sep 2014 - Women's Football NewsThe FA Girls' Football Festival in association with Continental Tyres visited St. Ives Outdoor Centre, on Saturday 27th September. 
The event was attended by 336 girls, who got into the festival spirit as they took part in the free programme aimed at increasing and retaining participation in the game. The event was organised with the support of both Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire CFAs and St. Ives Outdoor Centre.
The participants, aged 5-16 years old, were accompanied by Watford Ladies players, Amy Makewell and Renee Hector (pictured), who took part in all of the activities on offer, including a question and answer session, giving the girls an insight into what it's like to be an FA WSL footballer.
The format of the day was fun and active, combining football, lifestyle and music. FA approved coaches led the festival, and activities ranged from skills and drills to interactive games (target shoot, speed cage, batak boards), as well as mini matches inside an inflatable pitch. Referee ambassadors Lucy May and Mary Harmer delivered refereeing workshops, whilst girls also had the chance to pose with the FA WSL trophy, the Cyprus Cup and The FA WSL Continental Cup. In addition, the FA WSL mascot Berry the Bear was in attendance alongside Cyril the Squirrel. To add to the festival atmosphere, everyone had the opportunity to have their hair styled like their favourite WSL players, as well as get their face painted.
Renee Hector spoke about the impact that events like The FA Girls' Football Festival at St. Ives has on the girls: "Amy and I have had a great time in Cambridge today, and it's fantastic to see all the girls enjoying themselves. Events like this are hugely important to the progression of women's football in this country, as the FA Girls' Football Festival in association with Continental Tyres gives girls the chance to experience all aspects of football in a relaxed and entertaining environment."
Anyone interested in getting involved in football can contact Cambridgeshire County FA or Huntingdonshire FA by visiting their websites at www.cambridgeshirefa.com or www.huntsfa.com.
