2016 SportsWorld FAI Soccer Sisters Easter Camps

2016 SportsWorld FAI Soccer Sisters Easter Camps

The 2016 SportsWorld FAI Soccer Sisters Easter Camps were launched at the FAI National Training Centre with participation numbers set to reach new heights.

The hugely popular programme will be spread into even more communities around the country this year due to 30 more venues being added to the calendar.

A fantastic way for girls aged between 7-12 years to get involved with football in a fun and friendly environment, the Soccer Sisters Easter Camps also helps to continue the excellent work of developing women’s football.

Republic of Ireland women’s senior head coach Sue Ronan helped to launch this year’s programme, along with internationals Aine O’Gorman and Rianna Jarrett.

“The Soccer Sisters programme has been one of the driving forces behind the successful increase in participation within the schoolgirl’s game nationwide,” said Emma Martin, FAI National Coordinator for Women’s Football.

“Almost 23,000 girls have come through the programme since it began in 2006. It has proved to be a great way to introduce girls to the game, and many have continued on to join their local club and represent Republic of Ireland at various levels.

“Last year, we had an increase of over 40 per cent in the number of participants which shows that the programme’s popularity continues to grow. This year, with an increase of 30 more venues, we anticipate another record-breaking year.”
