On Monday 4th March, 8 girls in year 7 and 8 were at Loughborough University training and developing their leadership skills to be Girls Football Activators here at Ivanhoe.
In partnership with the Youth Sport Trust and the FA, the #GameOfOurOwn programme focuses on introducing more girls to football by teaching leadership skills to students, who can then apply these skills back in school to engage their peers.
On their training day, the girls were introduced to different marketing and design strategies to be able to best promote their events, and also had a session on coaching and how to organise and manage a large event. As a bonus, there was also a talk and appearance from ex-England Lioness internationals Sue Smith (BBC & Sky Sports Presenter) and Sophie Bradley-Auckland (Liverpool Women’s Player) who stayed and interacted with the girls all day.
Our Activators will go on to organise, promote and deliver their own girls football club and event with the aim to get as many girls as possible to try out football. This will be completely run by the girls, but with the support of the PE Dept and will hopefully be put into place very soon, so watch this space! If you want any more information, come and see our Activators:
