BFA to host women’s symposium
The Bermuda Football Association will hold its second women's football symposium during a weekend of activities entitled “Girls and Women's Empowerment in Football”.
The symposium and activities will take place next Friday and Saturday at the BFA's Clyde Best Centre of Excellence and the North Hall Lecture Theatre of the Bermuda College.
The BFA women's football committee has confirmed that former Bermuda international David Bascome, a recent inductee into the Baltimore Blast Hall of Fame will be the guest of honour and play an important role in highlighting the importance of girls and women in football. The symposium is entitled “Stay Ready”.
The aim of the symposium is to provide a forum where girls and women can have another opportunity to network and have open discussions and dialogue.
The symposium will also focus on three key areas that are critical to successfully growing the game for women and girls in Bermuda, namely coaches, players and parents. The symposium will also challenge the participants to understand the importance of staying ready on and off the field for all opportunities that come in life.
Events and activities planned for the symposium weekend include girls' under-9 and under-11 round-robin tournaments.
