Aspiring female footballers, coaches and trainers will get the chance to rub shoulders with Claremont Football Club representatives in a range of clinics in Albany this Saturday.

Claremont WAWFL players, coaches and staff will be conducting four clinics on Saturday to train and improve the skills of the Great Southern’s female footballers.

A coaching workshop will be held at the Railways Football Club, focusing on language and coaching techniques when coaching women and girls in football, with an emphasis on the differences between coaching men and women.

Coaches of girls’ and women’s football are encouraged to attend the free event.

A trainers’ workshop will be held in the Albany Sharks Football Club changerooms, providing participants with the chance to learn about and practise common taping techniques for the foot, ankle, and thumb.

The workshop is ideal for anyone involved in sport and recreation, including first aid personnel, team managers, sports trainers, and parents, and will cost $10 to attend.

The trainers’ workshop will be co-ordinated by Best Practice Sports Trainers and supported by APE medical.

A Great Southern Football League women’s clinic will be conducted at Oval T near the Retravision Stadium with a focus on training with the Claremont women’s team and learning what their training sessions involve.

A match simulation will be played, followed by an information session providing a guide on the path to the Claremont women’s program.

A junior and youth clinic will be held, with young players getting hands-on football drills and skills.

Senior players not playing in games will co-ordinate this clinic.

Great Southern regional development specialist Jaxon Liddelow encouraged people to attend.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for anyone that is involved or wanting to be involved with girls’ or women’s football,” he said.

“It’s a great way to learn new coaching techniques and different lingo, upskill as a trainer, or harness and grow your skills as a player.”
