Free girls’ soccer programme at Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea

Published: 16th January 2017

A free soccer programme for girls aged 8 to 11 will start at the Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea, on Wednesday 18 January 2017 at 4 pm.

The free one hour sessions, which have been organised as part of Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme and is part funded by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, will be delivered by a fully qualified soccer coach.

Speaking about the forthcoming programme, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Mary Garrity, said:

“Being physically active is important for health and well-being. Establishing physical activity habits from a young age can help to encourage life-long participation in physical activity and the Council is pleased to work in partnership with Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme to provide this opportunity for girls to get active through soccer.”

Sport Northern Ireland Interim Chair, Brian Delaney, commented:

“Sport NI is delighted to be investing over £6m of National Lottery funding in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland. By working together over the next 4 years on the delivery of Strand 1 of Every Body Active 2020 we will begin to see real changes in sport and physical activity participation – especially amongst women and girls, people with a disability and those in areas of greatest social need. We look forward to seeing the impact of our investment for people in our communities, helping them to enjoy, engage and excel in sport and leading to a population which is more active more often”.

Places on the girls’ soccer programme are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
