NEW DELHI: The All India Football Federation (AIFF) in association with the Punjab Football Association (WIFA) organized an AIFF Women’s Grassroots Leaders Course under the FIFA Live Your Goals project to extend the horizons of Women’s Football in India between August 16-18, 2017 at the Al-Falah Public School, Malerkotla, Punjab.
The Course Instructor was Mr. Hardeep Sahni where 25 participants from across Punjab participated in the Course. The Course concluded with a Grassroots Festival wherein 70 girls participated in drills and short games conducted by the participants. Both theory and practical sessions were part of Course.
The Grassroots Leaders Course and Festival was special as it was the first of its kind for women in the district of Sangrur. Many of the girls in the Festival were stepping on to a football field for the first time. In a city which does not have much of footballing tradition especially among women due to their conservative background, this was indeed a progressive step forward & a success for AIFF in its efforts.
