Girls Young Leaders Award

ASPIRING female coaches have taken their first steps into the world of coaching with the help of The Albion Foundation.

Taking part in the Level One Young Leaders Award, the batch of youngsters were able to lead their own session whilst also receiving tips on how to improve along the way.

"I think as the years go on we're going to need more female coaches," said Gemma Hamill-Moss, Inspire Coach for The Albion Foundation.

"The women's game - netball, football, any sport, is getting really, really big.

"What we try and do is inspire young girls, be a role model if we can do and hopefully they take something from the course and use it in the future."

The positive effect of having women in sport for the girls to look up to was clear to see.

"When I'm older I want to be a coach like Gemma because she's taught me stuff and I want to teach other people stuff when I'm older," said Erin Patrick.

"Seeing how they coach us has made me feel like I want to help other kids when they get to our age to help them as well."

Plans are in place for the follow-on course to be held in spring.
