FOOTBALL - Lionesses success boosts local interest in girl’s football and Help Soccer Coach’s Football Camps

Rugby Editorial 28th Jul, 2022   0

THE exploits of England Women’s Lionesses at the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 Championships are having a positive impact on girls’ football locally according to Rugby-based football coaching company Help Soccer Coach.

Ahead of their August Summer Football Camps starting next week, they have seen a substantial increase in interest and bookings for their three Girls Football Camps which will once again be running at Rugby School Sports Centre.

On the back of this interest and demand, Help Soccer Coach will be running a further three girls football camps across August, the first is from Monday 1 to Wednesday, August 3.

This is followed by camp number two from Monday 15 to Wednesday, August 17 with the final camp to be held after the August bank holiday for a further three days on Tuesday, August 30 to Thursday, September 1.

Each day of the Summer Holiday Football Camps will run from 9am to 3pm where girls aged five years and above can look forward to a wide variety of skills sessions, specialist coaching from FA qualified coaches up to UEFA B standard, small-sided games, and competitions.

Help Soccer Coach Head Coach Simon Mills said: “It is great and no surprise that the success and progress of England’s Lionesses is finding its way back down to grassroots level and inspiring girls to get involved in football here in Rugby.

“We already welcome a sizeable number of girls to our weekly coaching sessions with more and more attending each week, this in addition to our successful first Girl’s Football Camp which we held during the Platinum Jubilee Holidays.

“It is great to see the interest in girls’ football and for our girl’s football camps, which shows not only that there is a clear demand and interest in the girl’s game but also what we can offer and deliver for them.

“We also continue to work closely with Rugby Town Ladies and Girls Football Club to develop girls’ football in the town. And whilst we, like everyone connected with football, hope that England’s Lionesses go on to lift the Euros trophy, their success in the tournament so far can only be good for the girls and women’s game as a whole and especially here in Rugby.”

The Help Soccer Coach Girl’s Football Camps will once again run alongside similar ones being held for boys aged five years and above.

And the cost to attend any of their camps in August is £15 per day per child or £40 for all three days.

Children also have the option to attend any individual days across all three camps, with a 20 per cent sibling discount also available across the programme.

Places for each camp and individual days are limited.
