GFA delivers Equal Game workshop

The evening helped clubs looking to grow the female pathway.

On Thursday 15th February, the Gloucestershire FA opened our doors to clubs across the county with a common aim: to help grow the game for women and girls.

The workshop explored five key themes: club identity and governance, marketing, workforce, facilities and finance. Volunteers were asked to give their club an honest assessment in each area, before thinking about ways to improve in each. Filled with hands-on activities and interactive tasks, each section prompted a thoughtful discussion which allowed attendees to learn from one another and find out what worked for other clubs.

The event was delivered by Skye Smith, Football Development Officer (Women and Girls), and our Equal Game ambassador, Danielle Beazer.

“The ideas bouncing around the room were great,” said Skye. “Each club brought their own valuable experience and perspective on the evening’s topics. We hope there was something for every person in the room to take away and implement at their club.”

Well done to Skye and Danielle for hosting a fantastic event, and most importantly of all we would like to say thank you to all the volunteers who attended. Your commitment to providing an Equal Game is absolutely vital.
