Girls and Womens Week

Girls and Women in Football Month

New Zealand Football and the seven football federations across the country are celebrating girls and women in football for the month of March. WSAFC are joining in the celebrations with the following events for female footballers, supporters and those keen to find out more about the beautiful game...

Girls and Womens Fun Day at Springs
Sunday 28th March  | 9:00am - 11:00am

Get your girl friends together and come on down to the club for a fun filled morning of football with some great spot prizes to be won! 

This fun day is for all females in the community who are keen to have some fun on the turf with different skills stations run by some of our premier women players and rising stars. Rina and Arisa will be there to share and teach you some new football tricks.

The ever popular McDonalds inflatable pitch will be there too! So come on down and enjoy the fun and spread the word! Introduce a friend and win a prize!

Coach Education Day
Junior Level One Coaching | Fit4Football 11+ Kids
Sunday 28th March 2021  |  10:30pm - 2:30pm

Led by our Football Development Manager - Andy Vernon, the day will kick off with the Junior Level One Coaching course.

Through an interactive and practical approach the course will help develop your knowledge and understanding of how to encourage junior players aged 4-12 years to fall in love with the game while maximising skill acquisition at this important age.

You'll learn how to gain access to online resources to take away and use with your players.

The second part of the day will focus on Fit4Football 11+ Kids. Andy will take you through the importance of the Fit4Football 11+Kids warm up programme and how to safely move through the activities and levels with your team.

Youth Girls Education Workshop
The Female Athlete, Player Loading and Nutrition

Monday 22nd March 2021  | 4:15pm - 5:15pm

A footballer could have the best skills in the world, however without the correct nutritional support the player may not be able to sustain a hard training programme over a long period of time and improvement will therefore be limited. 

Good nutritional practices are also necessary to ensure optimum performance in competition.

Join us for an informative presentation on Player Loading and Nutrition with NRF's Player Welfare Officer Jenny Storey (practicing physio and Womens Black Sticks 2012-2017). We encourage all our female youth players (U12 - U16 years) to attend this invaluable event.

Community Referee Course
Wednesday 24th March  |  7:00pm - 8:30pm

This course is fun and interesting and if you're thinking “I could never do that…” you can!

The course is focused on junior football - 7v7 and 9v9 games. At the very least you'll increase your confidence and knowledge on the ins and outs of football fouls, have a laugh and take home your very own set of penalty cards!

And it's free for WSAFC members/parents! (females only of course but there will be further opportunities for others closer to the season).

All Courses Are FREE
