A new program aimed at introducing women to football will start in Kempsey on Monday October 21.
The program, which has been launched by Northern NSW Football and is called Kick-On for Women, is a modified football program to encourage women to get fit through a more social and accessible format of football.
Ladies are encouraged to head to the Eden St Ovals at 6.30 for a 45-minute fun and social session.
Kick-On coordinator for Kempsey Amy O'Brien claims the program is the perfect way for women to learn a new sport in a welcoming and non-competitive environment.
"The program is focused on women who potentially have never played before or who used to play but haven't in a long time," O'Brien told the Argus.
"They might be looking to learn how to play, to get active or just enjoy a bit of fun and a giggle, and this will be a very relaxed environment to do so."
Half of the session will be drill based and the other half will involve small social games.
"I want to emphasis that the program is open to all women from any fitness and skill level and it will be a very welcoming environment," O'Brien said.
Kick-On for Women aims to encourage women to become active, energised and connected.
