Girls Football Week Concludes for 2015

May 21st, 2015

On Sunday Girls Football Week 2015 wrapped up across Northern NSW. Girls Football Week ran from 11th-17th May to foster appreciation, acknowledgement and support of females currently within football, as well as to encourage and welcome new participants into the sport.

The week saw a myriad of activities being held across the state from Female Only Grassroots Coaching Courses and Girls Only Skills session in Armidale, Cessnock and Coffs Harbour to the Womens Football Forum held at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility (LMRFF).

A Girls Gala day was held on Sunday the 17th May which saw 18 AIA Vitality MiniRoos for Girls teams participate across two age groups under 6/7 and under 8/9. This saw teams playing five games on the all-weather synthetic Football FIVE5 pitches at the new LMRFF.

Northern NSW Football and the Emerging Jets female teams held a FIFA Womens World Cup farewell for Emily van Egmond to congratulate her on her achievement of representing the Matildas at the FIFA Women’s World Cup and wish her good luck for the upcoming tournament in Canada.

Clubs across the state were encouraged to wear pink and participate in Breast Cancer Network Australia Pink Sports Day fundraiser

Herald Women’s Premier League (WPL) clubs participated in a Breast Cancer Awareness Round by supporting Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation and Breast Cancer Network Australia’s Pink Sports Day campaign. Herald WPL clubs raised over $2000 during the weekends fixtures and some are still holding raffles with funds to be donated later in the year.

Northern NSW Football would like to thank all clubs who participated in Girls Football Week and organised events in 2015.
