Girls & Football SA Quarterly Report March 2014

The last few months have been very exciting for Girls & Football SA! Thanks to your donations, we’ve been able to carry forward our work in South Africa, introducing our girls’ football workshops at a new school in Bo-Kaap, Western Cape. 

We kicked off our football workshops at St. Paul’s Primary School, and the school has been very supportive of our work and curriculum. The principal and Physical Education Teacher have encouraged all girls aged 10 to 15 to participate. We have noticed that in just a few weeks, our players are demonstrating growth in their understanding of the sport in addition to their team-building skills. We thank St. Paul’s for their ongoing and enthusiastic support and look forward to keeping the work going in the second semester!

We have also had the opportunity to participate in a Premier Skills coaching workshop in Johannesburg. The coaching workshop focuses on developing the coaching skills of young coaches, and we are proud that one of our workshop leaders was able to attend and improve her skill set and her coaching techniques. 

Over the next month, we’re looking forward to our annual all-girls’ tournament on April 27th in Johannesburg. 

Thank you again for all your support - it’s because of your donations that we are able to carry out the work that we do.
