Get ready for the joy of Ladies' Turn 2015!
Ladies' Turn is gearing up for our 2015 tournament- coming soon- as soon as March 2015! We will update you when we know the exact start date.
We are excited about our new tournament format which will allow us to reach more regions than ever and allow us to strengthen our ties to education. We want to encourage the girls who play in our tournaments to stay in school. In Senegal, many girls drop out after primary school. We believe that soccer can be a motivation for staying in school.
So this year, we will organize one-day tournaments in 8 regions throughout Senegal, working closely with schools to start their first girls' soccer teams. Currently, schools have boys' teams but not girls' ones. Schools also provide a safe structure for girls' soccer to flourish and grow. Many of our Ladies' Turn regional organizers are also teachers. The tournaments and the equipment we provide to the schools will serve as a launchpad for the schools' first girls' soccer leagues.
We are looking forward to seeing more girls' soccer than ever in the regions of Thies, Fatick, Kaolack, Saint-louis, Seidhiou, Vélingara, Tambacounda, Kaffrine.
It's our favorite time of year- girls' soccer time! So get ready!
