Girls Rock Soccer After School in Thies, Senegal

Girls Ready to Play at Notto Dioubass (Thies)

The girls are rocking it in Thies! Ladies’ Turn organized 8 soccer clinics in April and and May 2019 for girls’ teams from 20 schools in the city and surrounding villages of Thies, Senegal. Each clinic brought together 4 or more teams for the afternoon after classes finished. A total of 330 girls participated! The PE coaches took what they learned from their coaching trainings in December and had the girls practice, practice, practice! The girls improved over the afternoon of drills and showed off their new skills in scrimmages.

To see the spirit of the clinics, check out these short videos:

We’ve been thrilled with the results of this partnership with Plan International Belgium and the Directorate-General Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid of Belgium who supported these clinics and coaching trainings.

Also, we’re excited for the upcoming women’s World Cup on June 7th in France. As part of the celebration of the start of the Cup, the French Embassy in Washington, DC is showing the Ladies’ Turn documentary on Tuesday, June 4, 2019.
