Girls football going well

| 19/10/2009

(CNS): The Cayman Islands Girls Football Organization (CIGFO) is halfway through its Fall 2009 season at the George Hicks Field in George Town. The program runs every Saturday morning from 9am – 10:30am for girls aged 4 1/2 to 12 and promotes football skills, teamwork, and active living to a large group of eager participants.
CIGFO is grateful for the sponsorship of Generali through its Be Active program. Through Generali’s sponsorship, girls pay only $15 for the entire 12-week season, and receive a jersey to keep.The Fall 2009 session began on September 19 and will conclude on December 5. The Spring 2010 session will begin in January 2010.

Each Saturday morning begins with a group warm-up and stretching session, after which the girls are divided into their age-groups and receive training in a specific football skill, such as passing, shooting, or trapping. The day concludes with a game and plenty of positive reinforcement.

CIGFO’s coaches have already noticed a large skill-level improvement in the girls who attend consistently, and are pleased that the girls are practicing their newly-acquired skills at home. Involvement in sport is an excellent way to keep young girls active and develop self-esteem and confidence as they grow.

CIGFO always welcomes new footballers; interested girls are invited to visit the George Hicks Field at 9am on Saturday morning. Please come with a waterbottle, running shoes, shin guards, and a football with the player’s name on it (if possible).
