One week to go until Women’s Football Week 2019 (4-8 March)
AoC Sport is delighted to be supporting Women’s Football Week (4-8 March) – the upcoming national campaign to get more women participating in football.
Women’s Football Week will be your college’s chance to join AoC Sport in a national campaign to raise awareness of all the incredible work the FE sector is doing to develop the women’s game.
It is an opportunity to showcase what you have already got going on, promote your current activity across campus or maybe even kick-start a new programme.
Lindsey Whitton, AoC Sport National Football Development Officer (Women and Girls), said: “Women’s Football Week is focussed on celebrating Women’s Football in the FE sector.
“We want colleges to showcase the incredible work they are doing to develop the game, not only across this sector but also in the community.
“At AoC Sport, we believe that every female should be provided with access to football in college regardless of their ability and are supported by The FA to ensure this vision becomes a reality through their Game Plan For Growth strategy.
“Football can play an incredible role in a student’s life. It can develop them socially, help them become fitter and can even enhance their employability and we are thrilled to be inviting colleges to join us in this national campaign to raise awareness of all the wonderful things football can bring to a student’s life.”
What? We want colleges to share on social media using the hashtag #womensfootballweek
- Case studies
- Videos of current activity
- Images and quotes
- The difference it’s making to students or community
- The benefits of playing
- Videos of senior staff pledging their support for women’s football
**Be as inventive as you like!**
Women’s Football Week also falls during National Apprenticeship Week (4-8 March) where colleges are encouraged to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.
Throughout the week, AoC Sport will be highlighting the work of our FA Women’s Football Apprentices and the work they have been doing.
