Following on from our Girls Football Information Day there will be two Friday night sessions with basic skill sessions. The first will be on Friday 9th December and the second on 16th December.

These will be skill sessions with the focus on kicking, marking and handballing to give the girls a taste of things prior to next years training commencing.

The sessions will commence at 5.00pm and run for approx. and hour (or longer if girls want to keep going). Be great to get as many girls there as possible.
