The FA Shooting Stars Girls Football Club programme inspired by Disney and Marvel uses superhuman powers, high-tech gadgets and superheroes to truly capture the imagination of primary-aged girls. Whether rescuing Groot the Root or flying across New York as Captain Marvel, girls will be inspired to get active and engage with their friends while learning how to play football. Through the activities, girls will develop their problem solving, decision making, leadership and confidence - all of which are transferable to other settings. There are six weeks of activities for every Girls Football Club resource, and this is tailored for either a KS1 or KS2 cohort.
