King's Team Up with Exeter City for Successful Football Camp
The Girls’ Summer Football Camp that took place at King’s Hall last month has been heralded a success by all involved.
Thirty girls aged between 10 and 16, many from as far afield as China, the Cayman Islands and Germany, attended the five day residential that was organised as part of the ongoing partnership between King’s Schools and Exeter City Football Club.
During the five action-packed days, which commenced at 8.30am and ran through until 9.30pm, the girls covered the principles of defending and attacking, engaged in futsal and creative play, and competed in competitive fixtures against both Crediton FC and Plymouth Phoenix FC.
In addition, 13 of those aged over 12 years undertook their FA Junior Football Leaders’ Award, of which they were presented with at the end of the week.
Chris Heayns, Director of Football at King’s Schools, said: “This was the most successful summer camp that we have ever hosted, and it was enjoyed by every one of the girls who attended. It went so well, in fact, that we are already planning for the summer of 2019.”
