The 2016/17 season of football in Tahiti gets underway in the next few weeks and helping to open it for the women’s game was the first Live Your Goals festival earlier this month.
The objective of the FIFA women’s football development programme is to inspire girls to get involved in the beautiful game, and for many it offers the first opportunity to kick a ball.
More than 115 girls aged between 6-12 years old took the opportunity with open minds at the Fédération Tahitienne de Football technical centre.
Activites were led by 19 participants on a FIFA Women’s Football Coaching Course and was a chance for them to put into practice what they had learnt over the course of their workshop.
The festival was considered a grand success with the smiles on the faces of the kids and the constant laughter a clear indication of their enjoyment.
The next Live Your Goals festival in Tahiti will be held on Saturday 26 November.
