For the first time Aviva will work alongside the Football Association of Ireland’s Football For All programme, which will host a camp in Irishtown that caters for children with additional needs.
Senior Sponsorship Manager at Aviva Ireland, Lisa Bergin, commented: “We are extremely excited to see the return of the Aviva Soccer Sisters Easter Camps after a two year pause on our in-person camps. As proud supporters of the Women’s National Team, we understand the importance of the sustainable growth of football, and the importance of supporting football at grassroots level.
“We are delighted to continue our support of the development of the women’s game in Ireland, which with players like Abbie (Larkin), is beginning to bear fruit. Aviva Ireland is also very proud this year to work alongside the FAI Football For All programme to provide a camp which will cater for children with additional needs, ensuring all children are safe to dream.”
Shelbourne and WNT Player Abbie Larkin, added: “Getting the opportunity to further develop my skills every year at Aviva Soccer Sisters was a massive part in my development as a player. I’m delighted to be given the chance to give back to my coaches and Aviva Ireland by supporting this year’s Aviva Soccer Sisters Easter Camps. I would really encourage any young players out there, who one day dreams of playing for Ireland, to sign up at their local club. You never know where it might lead.”
Peamount United captain and WNT International Player Áine O’Gorman said: “I’m thrilled to be supporting the Aviva Soccer Sisters Easter Camps again this year. These camps allow young girls to learn new skills and develop their confidence on the pitch whilst also having fun and making new friends at it. While it was a pleasure to deliver the Aviva Soccer Sisters Virtual Skills Hub over the last two years, I’m delighted to see the return of in-person camps to clubs across the country. I look forward to seeing who will follow in Abbie’s footsteps in the years to come.”
Each camp will take place over three days and will cost €30. Participants will receive an Aviva Soccer Sisters training top, football and a certificate on completing the camp.
