“Keep your dreams alive. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”
Goals4Girls is a football development programme for young women aged between 11-16. The programme aims to encourage every individual we work with to challenge themselves in a safe environment, using football as a vehicle to increase self-esteem, confidence & sports participation, inspiring each individual to set and achieve their goals. The programme has been running successfully since 2013, offering an all-round sports experience including football coaching, workshops, award presentations, inspirational speaking, trips, qualifications and mentoring.
The Goals4Girls coaching experience caters to the needs of the young women making each session fun and rewarding. Being a female development programme it prides itself with having the ability to work amongst a diverse selection of young women from all cultures, backgrounds and abilities.
Working closely with the Royal Docks Community School and the P.E. Department, Goals4Girls has supported a number of young women to realise their potential and aspire to greater success.
