For the first time, Olé Football Academy in association with Wanaka AFC held a 2-day Girls only Development Camp for 32 female players attending this fun, introductory look at Football ‘The Olé Way’.
The camp attracted players ages 9- 13yrs and levels of ability and playing experience varied from first-timers in football to players who had played before.
The camp was led by Olé x Wanaka Academy Head Coach, Blair Scoullar and assisted by coaches, Thomas van Hees and Jack Lanigan on the grass. The camp incorporated classroom sessions and team building activities and most of all the beginning of their football journey.
The camp was funded by Sport Otago & grant funding applied for by the Wanaka Club for womans sport- which enabled the players to participate in the camp at no cost.
The camp was an overall success and we are now looking to build on this for the future with the club also putting a lot of resources into Girls Football in the Region.
