Cardiff City FC Women’s Team players Cerys Pinchard and Sophie Norman celebrate International Women's Day with Cardiff City FC Community Foundation. 

 

The celebration focused on the achievements of some of the inspirational young women that we work with, who have grown the attendance of female players at local football sessions in their community.

 

Participants aged 13-16 who attend Girls Kicks sessions across Cardiff took part in football activities, a presentation and an engaging workshop, discussing the importance of equal opportunities for women in sport, the power of sport to change lives and the importance of happiness. 

 

Girls Kicks provides opportunities for females who are not currently taking part in regular sport to take part in fun, flexible, weekly sports activities in the heart of their communities.

 

Children, young people and families in our communities face the impact of inequalities.


Inequalities which affect their health and wellbeing, education and employment opportunities and the likelihood of offending and reoffending.


Females playing sport from ethnic minority backgrounds can be looked down upon. Through Girls Kicks, we can inspire girls and women from our communities to take part and enjoy the benefits of sport.
