Trust | This Girl Can
Saturday June 3 to Sunday June 11
Be Inspired – Get Active
As part of the ‘This Girl Can in Herts’ week, Watford Football Club's Community Sports and Education Trust is proud to support the Herts Sports Partnership’s campaign that supports Sport England’s national initiative to encourage more women and girls to be active.
This year the campaign wants to encourage all those mums, grans, sisters, cousins, aunties and friends who might just need a nudge.
This Girl Can aims to help women and girls whatever their shape, size and ability to overcome the fear of judgement that may be stopping them from joining in. The new campaign for 2017 focuses on the confidence, resilience and belonging that comes from taking part in sport.
In celebration of the week, the Trust welcomes all abilities to a free pilot Soccercise Session on Wednesday 7th June 7-8pm.
The ‘get fit with football’ inspired session will take place at Hertfordshire Sports Village, De Havilland Campus, Hatfield AL10 9EU.
For more information and what to do if you can’t make the event, please contact Laura Dyer at 01923 496351 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Trust will also be running lunchtime clubs and PE classes throughout the week at Westfield Academy, Elizabeth’s Girls’ School, Ark School, Longdean School and at Watford Grammar School for Girls.
