About the Event

The session will be run by friendly Goal Diggers FC coaches.
Who are Goal Diggers FC? Goal Diggers FC is a non-profit club set up in London to make football more available and accessible to all women and non-binary people regardless of previous experience or ability. Our aim is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome and encouraged. You can find out more about us here: https://www.goaldiggersfootballclub.com/.
What should I wear? This is an indoor 4G pitch, so we would suggest wearing comfortable sports clothes. The pitch is suitable for moulded or AstroTurf football boots (if you have them), as well as trainers. You don’t need to wear football-specific clothes. Bring a bottle of water.
We are currently seeking more funding to ensure that these sessions can remain subsidised. Each session costs £172 to run, so if you are able to contribute to the cost of running these sessions, we have introduced the option to 'pay what you can'. The recommended donation is £5, but by entering the codes PAY4 (£4) PAY3 (£3) PAY2 (£2) PAY1 (£1) PAY0 (£0) at the checkout you can select an option that suits you.
How do I sign up? Spaces are numbered, so please reserve a spot in advance here.
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.
We recommend paying £5, but if you are unable to pay £5 can pay what you can with code PAY4 (£4) PAY3 (£3) PAY2 (£2) PAY1 (£1) PAY0 (£0)
