Sports Leaders Host Football Festival For Local Primary Schools

Our sports leaders hosted a fantastic event for local primary schools on Thursday afternoon (pictured). Since the start of the year, over 30 girls have been developing their leadership skills through the ‘Game On’ project every Thursday after school. They have had the opportunity to gain experience from external coaches who have delivered valuable sessions about the importance of communication, organisation and teamwork. In recent months, the group have had the chance to put their training into practice and helped lead multiple Panathlon Tournaments at Bolton Arena and David Lloyd. As a result of these events being a great success, the girls wanted to deliver their own football session to local primary schools. After weeks of planning, the leaders hosted a mini football festival for The Valley, High Lawn, The Olive, St John’s, St Paul’s and Sharples Primary. The girls delivered some skill based sessions to over 50 Year 4/Year 5 pupils before organising a tournament where they officiated all of the games. This was a fantastic event enjoyed by everyone involved. The girls showcased their ability to run and organise a festival and offer guidance to the primary students about how to improve. It was brilliant to see how everyone’s confidence had increased since September; teachers from the primary schools even commented on how well the girls conducted themselves. Well done, girls!
