9 v 9 Womens League
Over the last 3 years Cumberland have made some changes to the way local women’s football is played. Since then we have doubled participation in the game, with our local women’s county league growing from 5 teams to 10.
The Cumberland FA Women’s League offers weekly 9v9 football for teams during the months of March-October. Offering a fun yet competitive format for local teams to play in, guaranteeing some sunshine along the way.
The league also supports Under 16 teams transitioning into open age football by falling in line with their end of season programme.
Perfect for anyone looking to get involved in football, who just fancy a kick about and socialise.
Sessions are now running in Carlisle and Egremont… and yes there is Prosecco or a soft drink (at the end!)
No previous football experience is required; just turn up, have a kick about and enjoy! This is also a great way of getting back involved in football if you have been out of practice for a while.
This is a great session for anyone looking to keep fit, but unsure about giving a football session a try.
Soccercise is a functional training class which focuses on body weight and HIIT (high-intensity interval training) to provide you with a fantastic full body workout. The inclusion of footballs adds co-ordination and core stability to familiar exercises, whilst building skill and confidence of working with a football.
The programme is being piloted in Carlisle (Wednesday 7-7:30pm at DW Fitness)
GAMEPLAN FOR GROWTH
The FA plans to double the number of women and girls taking part in football by 2020.
We have three simple goals to increase the number and diversity of women’s coaches, referees and administrators in the sport at all levels.
- Double Participation
- Double Fans
- Consistent Success on the World Stage
