Feedback from our previous session:
As a complete novice to football I had no idea what to expect. I was surprised at how much fun we had and how positive and encouraging the coaches were! I will come back for the next event.
My anxiety about going to the session instantly disappeared when the coaches got us started. The coaches were amazing: so supportive and they made everything easy to understand. I genuinely felt that I learnt some skills. I felt challenged but definitely not overwhelmed, so much fun. It was great meeting a group of women by whom I felt supported. The coaches were absolutely fantastic.
It was a very friendly environment, a great workout and lots of fun.
