Good attendance for first session of the summerGirls’ performance camps began at Fuse Football this morning, with over 15 girls from local primary schools in attendance.
The camps are designed to improve individuals’ technical development in a fun environment, while also working on general football skills.
Centre facilites manager for Fuse Football, Mick Horsfall said: “We’re trying to push our performance camps quite heavily and get more girls playing football.
“It’s our first day today and we’ve got over 15 girls coming from the local primary schools.
“We’ve built up good relationships with local primary schools and Wyre Sports Trust, so it’s just a combination of good team work really.
“We’ve targeted all schools in the area so once we get to know more details, we’ll be able to target girls from the schools who haven’t come along.
“Monday and Tuesday camps for girls this week are free, and the rest of the week we’ve got general performance camps which are going from strength to strength.”
The Community Trust’s sports camps are also taking place this week and will take place throughout the summer.
“Sports camps are taking place this week at Carleton Green and Fleetwood High School which are always popular.
“You can only try your best to get people involved, but to be fair everything we’ve done so far has been good and we’ve had positive feedback.
“People are wanting to be a part of it and are getting to know about it. Now the first team are here as well we’ve got a professional set-up.”
