The FAI and Aviva Soccer Sister Camps will take place across Westmeath during the Easter school holidays, with registration now open.
Aviva is calling on girls between the ages of six and 14 to sign up and get involved.
Now in its 12th year, the initiative is designed to give girls the opportunity to develop their skills, have fun, meet new people and stay active. The camps continue to grow, with 140 taking place nationwide this year, up from 125 camps in 2017 when 3,400 girls participated. The FAI and Aviva are expecting more than 4,000 registrations for this year’s camps, which will run for two full days during the Easter school break.
The participants will enjoy an action packed two days of training and each participant will receive a full Aviva Soccer Sister kit, including a limited edition Soccer Sister jersey, and a football. At the end of the camp, each girl will be presented with an official FAI Aviva Soccer Sisters completion certificate signed by Irish Women’s player, Katie McCabe, and Colin Bell, Women’s National Team head coach.
Tyler Toland, Sion Swifts and Republic of Ireland player, said: “Having been a Soccer Sister myself, I know first-hand how these camps can help girls fall in love with the sport. Football is a fantastic game that has brought so much positivity to my own life and getting involved at a young age has been a key part of this.”
