As part of its ongoing support for the new FA Women’s Super League Teams, The FA - along with FAWSL partner Continental Tyre Group - will be bringing a new interactive Road Show to Arsenal Ladies on Thursday, August 18 at 2pm.
The Road Show will visit Meadow Park, Boreham Wood FC, as part of the pre match-build up before Arsenal take on Everton, kick-off 7pm.
Aimed at girls between the age of eight and 16, Continental Shot Stoppers is a nationwide Road Show developed by The FA and sponsor, Continental. The programme encourages football participation and, more specifically, shows the different skills and abilities needed for goal keeping.
The programme is fun, safe, and youthful series of interactive coaching sessions and activities. There will be six core coaching zones set out on a full size pitch, supported by four interactive areas testing a variety of skills including speed, reaction, accuracy and reflex.
The main focus of the Road Show will be to provide a fun and rewarding experience for all participants, no matter what their level.
As well as unique coaching the Road Show will include competitions, prizes, goodies and giveaways alongside personal appearances from some of the Women’s game’s leading players, photo opportunities and tickets to upcoming Arsenal Ladies fixtures.
Working with Arsenal LFC, The FA is looking to attract up to 200 local girls aged 8-16 to take part in the Road Show.
