A team of very enthusiastic Year 6 girls attended a football event with me in April. On a very cold and wet day they had a brilliant time enjoying various coaching sessions with York City and York College students. They played small matches against other local schools and learned more about the popular game. The girls approached the whole day with a smile on their faces and were a pleasure to take out of school.
Leading on from this we now have 2 ‘girls only’ football clubs set up for this half term. These are run by York City coaches and the response has been fantastic. Both clubs are now full but if successful, we will endeavour to provide further coaching beyond this half term.
York City are also in delivering curriculum support for Y2 (DA/LR) and Y3. Coaches are coming into support teachers and develop their skills and knowledge for teaching football.
