King's Hosts Another Successful Girls' Football Camp
At the end of July, King’s College held its third annual girls’ football summer camp.
This year we were joined by girls from Bahrain, Spain, London, the New Forest and Cornwall, as well as those from the local area.
Among the coaches who were involved was former King’s pupil Beth Beale, who left school earlier this summer but returned to help out and share her experience with the youngsters.
During the week the girls, aged between 9 and 17 years, were involved in coaching activities aimed at developing their skills. As part of the camp, the girls also undertook their Junior Football Leaders’ badge and even played a game of ‘footgolf’ in nearby Vivary Park.
The two highlights of the week were two games of football against Bishops Lydeard, and on the final night, the girls travelled to Exmouth beach to train alongside the Exeter City Ladies squad enjoying some refreshments with the senior players afterwards.
Chris Heayns, Director of Football at King’s Schools said: “The girls all had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They were a great group and really embraced every opportunity that was made available for them during the week.”
He added: “A number of the girls have already booked to come again next year, which shows just how much they enjoyed themselves. It was great fun.”
