New signing Naomi Powell attends girls only session at Nottingham Forest Official Soccer Schools.
A crucial part of our busy summer programme schedule involves running the Nottingham Forest Official Soccer Schools during the summer holidays. As part of youth development in football, we believe there needs to be a huge focus on raising the profile of the women’s game. To encourage more girls to get into football, we are proud of offer girls only soccer school sessions on Fridays at our world class Forest Sports Zone, located at The Forest Recreational Ground.
Last Friday, the girls in attendance were treated to a special visit by Nottingham Forest Women FC new signing Naomi Powell.
Naomi has recently joined the club having moved to England to study at the University of Nottingham and has previously played for North Carolina State University.
When asked about the significance of these girls only sessions, Naomi responded. “The girls’ game has seen a massive increase in exposure and following in recent years and it’s programmes like today’s soccer school that helps craft the next generation of female football players”
She goes on to say, “I’m thrilled to be able to take some time out of our busy schedule to see the girls in action and to give them extra tips and advice which they can take on to the pitch to improve their skills.”
Tickets are still available if you would like to book a child on to any of our soccer schools – book yours here.
