Soccer club offers session for women and girls
Umina United soccer club will host free session for women and girls who want to give the sport of soccer a go on January 22.
The session will be held at Umina Tennis Courts from 9am.
Club president Mr Nigel Mainland said the session was about tapping into the fitness culture of the young and offering them "a chance to experience the great game".
"It's a great time to get women and girls interested in soccer," Mr Mainland said.
"We see women and girls exercising, going to the gym to maintain their fitness and we want to offer them the opportunity to do that in a fun and social setting through soccer.
"We have 120 female players right through from the under-fives to the over-40s and we want the session to be an exciting and energetic introduction to soccer for interested locals," Mr Mainland said.
The session will be run by the club's Women's League squad players and is open to girls and women of all ages.
Mr Mainland said, other than inspiring a love of soccer in more girls and women, he hoped the session would encourage more people to join the girls and women's club teams and would generate more interest in the Women's League in general.
