On International Women’s Day Marrickville FC is proud of its initiatives to encourage female participation in football.
Women wanting to play football but who don’t have the time and commitment to do a full season will soon have an alternative option, the Kick-on for Women program.
Kick-on for Women is an introductory program for women who have never played soccer before but want to stay active and play with friends. The program runs for eight weeks, with each session lasting 45 minutes. It comprises a 25-minute skill session, where women will learn basic football skills, and a short 20-minute game with teams of five or seven competing against each other.
