​Girls’ Football Festivals

The​ FA Girls’ Football Festivals in Association with Continental Tyres  

"Girls football festivals, providing fun for all"

The FA Girls’ Football Festivals are a joint initiative by The FA and Continental Tyres. They provide girls aged 5 to 16 with an exciting, interactive football experience whether they are brand new to the game or a regular player. The festivals aim to increase participation in youth female football by creating football opportunities that are informative and engaging for girls, as well as increasing awareness of the female game.

The events, organised with the support of County FAs are free for schools to attend, and are open to girls from primary and secondary schools. The 2017 Festivals will once again visit a number of locations around the country between June and November.

Participants will have the chance to play alongside some of the stars of women’s football, as players from The FA Women's Super League spend time meeting, signing autographs and having a kick-about with the girls.

In addition, Charlotte Lade, one of the world’s leading professional football freestylers, is often on hand to demonstrate her amazing football tricks and skills.

Each festival is led by FA approved coaches and includes fun football sessions delivered by the FA Skills team. The girls then try out some mini matches as well as refereeing, football freestyle and goal keeping workshops. This is all in addition to them having fun in the inflatable pitch, speed cage and target shoot areas.

With a fun and interactive format, which combines football, lifestyle and music, over the past five years, The FA Girls’ Football Festivals in association with Continental Tyres have attracted over 44,000 girls across 127 events.

To date Jersey Primary School Sports Association has 17 different schools, from school years 5 and 6 entering 20 teams in the annual Festival. The Festival will play host to approximately 200 girls playing football in one afternoon each year.

Schools that have entered the competition include, Bel Royal, Jersey College for Girls Prep, Springfield School, First Tower School, St Peter, St Luke, Les Landes, FCJ, Beaulieu, Rouge Bouillon, St Martin, La Moye, Janvrin, St Clements, St George, D’Auvergne and Grouville.

Jersey Primary School Sports Association member Tony Hoyland said: "Whilst primary school girls football is not based within a league structure by holding 4 football festivals throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms all schools are afforded the opportunity for their girls football teams to participate in a fun and friendly learning environment. With over 20 schools normally participating and over 200 girls enjoying playing the game the afternoon is a perfect way for all levels of ability and confidence to experience successful outcomes."

Jersey Primary Schools Football Association is working in partnership with the Jersey Football Association and Highlands College to ensure a positive experience for all involved.

We are happy to be supporting the Jersey Primary School Football Festival. I see this as a great chance for the Girls to be given the opportunity to participate in football in a fun and enjoyable environment. On the back of this festival, the Girls will be given the opportunity to join local football clubs and activity’s outside of school.
