Southend Ladies - Our Football Fields are Calling

Southend Ladies - Our Football Fields are Calling

Did you watch England win the Women's EURO 2022 and fancy having a go yourself? The Southend United Ladies team are looking for more players to join! This sport not only has many health benefits, but it also teaches life lessons through teamwork and collaboration. Benefits of playing football include:

Promotes Physical Fitness
With all the various movements you need to perform playing this sport, it is a great option to try to build physical fitness.

Empowers Girls
For years, football has been a male-dominated sport but with the ever-increasing interest from girls, this is a brilliant sport to teach females to believe in themselves just like it does for guys.

Improves Mental Health
Sport in general allows you to have a more positive outlook on life and football is no different. As girls develop in the game, their self-esteem gets better too.

Better Socialisation
Being a team sport, football offers girls the opportunity to make new friends and learn new things from other girls on their team.

Promotes Teamwork
Some might say this is the most important aspect of the game, but we'd argue it's also the most valuable too. Learning to work in a team through football can translate into everyday life too.

Welcome Gym Southend’s Fitness Instructor Cristina, who is also a Southend United Ladies forward, is keen on having more women try out football. So, if you are a member of our club and fancy a trial or if it's just a social kick about you are after, come down to Southend United Ladies FC and see what all the hype is about.

Contact Cristina on 07983530312 for more info.
