FA Sport Activators
Last week, six Year 8 girls travelled to Nottingham University to take part in the FA Sports Activators Programme run by the Youth Sports Trust.
They received coaching and guidance on how to encourage girls to participate within sport, with a particular emphasis on football.
During this academic year, they will be leading a number of events to inspire more girls to take up the game. Their aim is to double the amount of females taking part in football practice as an extra-curricular activity. They will also be hosting football tournaments for KS3 and KS4 girls.
Over the Christmas holiday, the girls will be creating a media campaign to ask female members of staff to get on board and promote football. They are fantastic ambassadors for PE and Sport at The ACE Academy!
