Newcastle United are pleased to announce that we have organised two girls only fun days during the May half term school holidays.
The first will take place at Gateshead College (International Stadium) on Thursday 30th May, 10:00am-2:00pm to help celebrate the successful partnership between Newcastle United Foundation and Gateshead College. The event will cater for girls aged under 12 to under 16 will be delivered by experienced coaches from the College and Foundation with a special guest appearance from England and Team GB star Jill Scott.
The second will take place on Friday 31st May, 10:00am-2:00pm at Walker Activity Dome, using their fantastic new facilities. This course is for girls aged 5 to 15 with players being placed in groups relevant to their age banding.
Newcastle United Foundation Community Coach Amber Whiteley said; "As a fellow player myself I know how important it is for girls to be given the opportunity to play football together and receive the best possible coaching if they are to fulfil their potential. These two days will be great fun and we also hope to attract more girls to the game. Price is clearly not a barrier at either events and we can assure the girls that they will receive the highest level of coaching and support. Our Foundation also runs the FA Girls Player Development Centre with Northumberland FA so there is an exit route for those girls who show promise. We would encourage all girls who either play already or want to get started to come along and get involved"
Both events are absolutely FREE but pre booking is essential as places are limited.
