BFA fostering female football

Category: | 0 Replies


National tryouts for the Barbados Under-13 and Under-15 teams get underway on May 13th at the Barbados Football Association's Wildey Turf.

As the Barbados Football Association continues with its mandate to raise the standard, scope and reach of sport at home and abroad, the local governing body is falling in line with the rest of the world as women's football is being put in the spotlight. With the women's game now receiving some long-overdue attention at every level across the globe, a special effort is being made that it is not left behind. The same holds true for Barbados and the BFA will be opening the door of opportunity to many of the nation's young women as it hosts a player recruitment drive next month.

On May 13th, the Association will be hosting a football festival for girls born on or before December 31st, 2003. The festival serves as a national tryout event that will see the the best players being drafted into the Under-13 and Under-15 Women's programmes. Set to run from 9:30 AM, all interested girls are invited to come out and go after a chance at representing our country in the 'Beautiful Game'.

The Head Coach of the Women's youth programmes is Richard Forde who has years of playing and coaching experience under his belt including being a coach with the national senior women's outfit. With international accreditations and a coaching career that has taken him as far a Germany, Forde said that he knew there was a lot of talent and potential in Barbados and that he was looking for good things form the young women at the festival.

Head of his own football academy RF Prime, as well as a football coach with the National Sports Council, Forde said that it was his passion to groom young players and looked forward to helping mold the future of female football in Barbados.
