Women & Girls Football
Pompey in the Community are proud to be delivering Women and Girl’s football programmes.
The programmes provide grassroots training sessions within Portsmouth and the surrounding area for women and girls aged between 14 and 25.
We aim, with the support of Sport England’s funding, to reverse a decline in female participation of almost 20 per cent over the past seven years. Participation in women’s football has dropped across all age groups since 2006 and is way down the list of sports played by women.
Kirsty McGee is the programme coordinator at Pompey and is excited about this new opportunity for local girls. She said “It’s great to have a dedicated programme so local women and girls have the opportunity to take part in fun, regular training sessions with qualified and experienced coaches.”
