The XLR8 Women’s Skill Training program aims to create a safe, fun environment for players to learn, try new things and even make new friends along the way.
This term has 42 participants registered across four timeslots and three venues – such was the demand sessions at Lindfield Sports Centre were the first XLR8 Term 4 programs to sell out.
“Women’s Skills Training was the reason I wanted to coach with XLR8,” said Program Leader Ash Clarke.
“XLR8 was the first coaching provider I’d come across which offered training programs to 18+ female players. As a player myself, I know how difficult it is to find training with qualified coaches.”
The program caters to varying levels of experience, including players looking to get back into the game after a few years off or those looking to give football a try for the first time.
“Women’s Skills Training also gives new players the opportunity to start playing football with no prior experience, without feeling completely overwhelmed,” explains Ash.
“It’s hard for anyone to start a new sport, let alone committing to an entire football season if you’ve never played before.
“These newer players build their confidence at the program, and often make friends with other participants who play at a club during the winter season, so they then join that club as well!”
“A social fun environment where you feel confident to develop your skills.” – Jan (Lindfield).
“Winter game days have become more fun as we have friends in other teams so there’s healthy banter.” – Toe, Mel and Matilde.
“An environment where we can improve our skills and the level of the winter competition.”– Mel (Northbridge)
