In celebration of International Womens day Hertfordshire FA are putting on a soccercise workshop for females of all ages.
International Women's Day
Thursday 8 March
Sports Hall 2, University of Hertfordshire, De Havilland Campus, Mosquito Way, Hatfield AL10 9EU
This sessions is open to all Hertfordshire FA clubs and ideally any females involved in our county's football community that would like to come and try out soccercise.
This skill learned in the session could be great to bring back into your club - you could even potentially run a session for Mums during girls football week (23rd-29th April) as a get back into football initiative!
Soccercise is a great way to get fit in a fun environment. This session will be run by Laura Dyer (Watford Ladies FC) and Dani Burge (Stevenage FC Foundation) and will give you an idea of what soccercise is and how to run a session back at your club.
Watch the video below to see what a soccercise session looks like:
Soccercise combines a variety of fitness exercises with a football and the class is delivered to music and based on repetitions of specific exercises (eg – press ups, squats, sit ups etc).
It can be tailored to all levels of fitness and can help introduce football, re-familiarise those who haven’t played for a while, form part of pre-season, be part of a warm up or just be used as an alternative way to keep fit.
The inclusion of footballs adds co-ordination and core stability to familiar exercises and builds skill and confidence of working with a football. Footballs will be provided and participants will need to come in comfortable clothing and trainers.
If you or any coaches from your club would like to book onto this workshop then please do so via the Eventbrite link below;
