Places at this Easter’s Aviva FAI Soccer Sister camps in Kilkenny are filling up fast.
The camps, which take place during the Easter break, are proving extremely popular across the county. Stoneyford United, Evergreen and Thomastown United will run the camps for two full days during the Easter school break. The camps are open to girls aged from 7 to 12 years, giving them a chance to learn the skills of football in a safe and fun environment.
Each participant will receive a full Aviva Soccer Sister kit, including a limited edition Soccer Sister Jersey, a “Play Like a Soccer Sister” wristband” and a football. At the end of the camp, each girls will be presented with an official FAI Aviva Soccer Sisters completion certificate signed by Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team player, Aine O’Gorman and Sue Ronan, FAI’s Head of Women’s Football.
"The Soccer Sisters Camps are an ideal opportunity for young girls to experience football in a fun, safe environment with their friends," said Sue Ronan, Head of Women’s Football with the FAI. "The two-day Easter Camps are the first step on the football ladder for young girls and have proved to be a big hit over the past number of years.
"Many of these girls have stayed in the game, some going on to great heights like playing for their country at underage level, while others continue to enjoy the game at club-level, having made life-long friends along the way."
