FEMALE GAME L1-L2 GROUP LAUNCHED ON THURSDAY 30 JANUARY
Following the announcement at the end of 2019 that Plymouth Marjon had successfully become a Women’s High Performance Football Centre, Cornwall FA was thrilled to see the first event take place on Thursday 30 January.
Hosted at Cornwall FA’s offices, this event launched the ‘Female Game L1-L2’ coaches group, with eight coaches currently involved with the women and girls’ game considering how they work with their players, linking to the FA Four Corner model.
The event enabled coaches who work in different clubs and with different age groups to come together to share their successes, challenges and support each other as a group moving forwards.
Vicky Fisher, Women and Girls Football Development Officer at Cornwall FA, said: “We’ve had great success over the past year with engaging and supporting our volunteer workforce in the women and girls’ game and it’s fantastic to be able to link with Plymouth Marjons FA WHPFC to offer a high quality programme of support for these coaches.”
Natasha Mills, Coach Development Officer, added: “It was fantastic to see the coaches engaging with the workshop, all of whom have a thirst for developing and learning. They are brilliant advocates for female player development in Cornwall and I am excited to continue the work with these coaches.”
Moving forwards the group will support each other with guidance and help from the FA coach mentor team through 1:1 support sessions, group sessions and workshops. With the energy, excitement and enthusiasm on display within the first session it’ll be fantastic to see the group develop and progress throughout the season.
