Football NSW recently launched its new ‘Girls United’ program with the first session hosted at Manly Warringah Football Association’s Cromer Park.
Funded by the ‘Football Your Way’ grant from Football Australia, the program for females from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds, Migrants, Refugees and those from low-socio economic backgrounds was a smash hit in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
The group that took part with the opening session at Cromer Park form part of a Tibetan Youth Group through STARTTS with the connection being established through STARTTS staff member and Community Leader Sonam Wangmo.
“I see excitement, enthusiasm and most importantly Female Empowerment in this program,” Wangmo stated to Football NSW.
“I also see great engagement from the parents which means they appreciate Girls United.”
The program is used to support these groups as well as introducing them to football in a social environment via an eight-week program.
Similarly, boys and mixed programs also fall under the Community FC banner, these of which have also been held at Cromer Park with the same community.
The launch of the program commenced in February with the program being co-delivered by Football NSW and Football United Coaches.
