Northbridge FC has organised a special Female Football Week Talk with several high-profile guest speakers.
The goal of this event is to support, mentor, motivate, deliver positive messaging around women in football, the benefits of sport, mental health, fitness, and mindfulness – all very positive attributes that playing can deliver. Attendees will also gain a further understanding of what life is like within football at different levels as well as hear about careers and interest outside of it. Opportunity for Q&A’s with the speakers at the end.
