Girls Footy Australia is excited to announce that we will be running an 8 week fundamental football skill program for Melbourne Girls Grammar. The program will include 25, year 5 & 6 students from Melbourne Girls Grammar, participating in 45 minutes of football twice a week. The program is based on three key aspects; fundamentals, fun, and fitness.
The fundamental skills that we will focus on include kicking, hand balling, marking, ground balls, tackling and spoiling. Our aim is to teach these fundamentals so that each athlete feels comfortable and confident performing these skills under pressure and with a safe and effective technique.
We are excited to bring an abundance of energy and fun during the program, starting with our passionate AFLW coaches and fun competitive games during each session. Our fantastic AFLW coaches will include Girls Footy Australia head coach from the Melbourne Football Club Katherine Smith, Melbourne Football Club Midfielder, Sarah Lampard, and Collingwood fan favourite Brit Bonnici.
We are looking forward to getting more girls outdoors and active. Football is a terrific way to improve fitness and communication, and our program is structured to include various drills that will support these attributes.
Girls Footy Australia is grateful for the opportunity to work with more young female athletes on their football and help develop the future generation of female footballers.
