Community Trust providing variety of sessions for girls.

With girls now making up 34% of those taking part in Wigan Athletic Community Trust's sessions, a bigger number and variety of girls only sessions are being offered than ever before.

Most recently, hockey and netball sessions were launched in local schools as part of the Premier League 4 Sport programme, with Wigan Athletic players Don Cowie and Chris McCann on hand to launch the hockey scheme last month at Hawkley Hall High School.

 The Community Trust’s Girls Football and Sports Coach, Stephanie Greensill, provides girls football coaching sessions throughout the week in seven locations, including an open training session at Wigan Youth Zone from 6.00 – 7.00pm every Monday evening.

Stephanie said: “It’s really important to the Community Trust to provide as many opportunities as possible for girls to take part in sport. 

“By providing a range of activities, including football, dance, netball and other sport sessions, the Trust hope to appeal to as many girls as possible to get them playing more sport.” 

Brand new dance and fitness sessions are also being introduced from the week commencing 23rd February 2015, through the Latics Kicks programme.

These sessions will run every Tuesday from 4.15 – 5.15pm at Cansfield High School, Old Road, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan, WN4 9TP, and every Thursday from 4.00 – 5.00pm at Standish High School, Kenyon Road, Standish, Wigan, WN6 0NX, where the Community Trust are looking to create a new and exciting Latics Dance Squad.
