Girls invited to ‘Come Kick It’

FORGET David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, this weekend the football stars are the girls of the Southern Downs.

The Warwick District Football Association Women's team is holding a free Come Kick It program for girls aged eight to 18 tomorrow morning.

Coach Shazz said she and the majority of the women's team were looking forward to having a spending some time on the fields with other football fans.

"Anyone can come along and we will have fun soccer-based games, skills and drills and the inflatable pitch, which is really fun," she said.

"It doesn't matter if you haven't played before; this is way of trying it out and seeing if you like it before you sign up."

The women's team has just wrapped up its first season and Coach Shazz is hoping other budding stars will make their way through the ranks to the women's team.

"(Tomorrow) is also about bridging the gap so it is not such a big jump from the junior competition to the women's team," she said.

"We have already had about 25 commit, but people don't have to RSVP - just show up tomorrow morning."

Come Kick It will be held at the Warwick Wolves Club at Queens Park from 9am until 11.30am.

The program is free, but girls are asked to bring shin guards, runners or boots, water and a hat.
