Sunday 16th of December will go down in the history books as a first for football in Australia with Football NSW hosting a Girls Only CP Football Clinic at Valentine Sports Park.
In what were hot conditions, ten players attended the session with some traveling as far as Dubbo and Gundagai to be part of what was a memorable day for CP Football in NSW.
Football NSW’s Community Game Development Officer Charlotte Ercil was delighted with how the day unfolded.
“This is the first step towards providing a pathway for female footballers with CP, ABI or symptoms resulting in stroke.
“As football continues to grow and opportunities continue to arise for all female footballers in Australia, so too will this occur for players with CP, ABI or symptoms resulting in stroke – this is with the assistance of Football NSW.
“The day was an absolute success and we are hoping to put another one on in early 2019, so stay tuned.”
Coaches on the day included Pararoos head coach Kai Lammert, current Pararoos star Taj Lynch, former Matildas Di Alagich and Kim Schaefer, Nick D’Amore and Football NSW’s Charlotte Ercil.
