Naas AFC Training Daywith Derval O'Rourke

As part of our sponsorship of Naas AFC, we recently hosted a skills training day with none other than our Brand Ambassador Derval O’Rourke.  As a former World Champion and three-time Olympian this year’s group of girls from ages 5 – 10 were truly inspired by one of Ireland’s greatest ever athletes. From motivational conversations, to relays and penalty shoot outs, the girls had a great variety of activities and fun. We were very impressed with their level of skill and enthusiasm.

Thank you to all involved

Coach Gavin Barnes explains that they are doing lots of work to promote girls’ soccer in the community as they never had a girls’ team before. We are proud to support their on-going efforts to encourage young girls to get active and most importantly have lots of fun!
