CULFC teams up with Council and Everyone Active
Coventry Ladies Football Club three way partnership
Hot on the heels of last week’s visit from local sporting hero, Laura Bassett, the Council has teamed up with Coventry United Ladies Football Club and the Council’s leisure and community partner, Everyone Active to launch an exciting new initiative promoting sport to local children.
The three way partnership will provide activity sessions for local school children in school settings and community venues with targeted information on the importance of health and wellbeing.
A spokesperson from Coventry United Ladies FC said:
‘As a ladies football club we are very excited about this partnership as we would like to express the importance of a healthy lifestyle for young children in the local community. Coventry United Ladies FC players will be delivering the project ‘United for Health’ which is all about children engaging in the fundamentals of activity such as agility, balance and coordination. As a club we will be offering females the opportunity to play for our junior football section which ranges from U9’s – U18’ who compete in the Central Warwickshire Girls League.’
The first date to kick start this partnership project will take place at Wembrook Primary school, Avenue Road Nuneaton on Tuesday 6th October commencing at 5:00pm – 6:00pm for girls only coaching catering for over 8’s and under 12’s years. Please do come along and have a go in a safe and brand new artificial grassed pitch facility.
Ian Lloyd Cabinet Member for Arts and Culture at the Borough Council said:
“This is yet another new initiative to encourage participants into sport and leisure with specific emphasis focusing on girl’s football. With the recent success of the England Women’s football team we wanted to ensure that opportunities are also made available locally. With our very own local England star Laura Bassett being a role model for local girls to aspire. We are pleased to be working in this partnership approach to further increase opportunities for local residents”.
