Football School

Last week the Juniorette attended Football school with the 1.FFC Frankfurt Women’s Football club. They are the top Women’s team in Germany and are the current holders of the UEFA Cup. She attended the same training school last October and really enjoyed it. The school is now run by Louise Hanson (FFC Frankfurt and Danish International) and provides a very professional environment for girls to improve their skills of the game. Other trainers included Karolin Thomas and Petra Wimbersky who both also play for the Frauen Bundesliga team.

The Juniorette had a great time and had a lot of fun. She managed to pick up a bronze medallion in the training assessments, which was a little disappointing for her as she was hoping for silver. But her team did win the end of training tournament so she did collect an award for that, of which she is very proud. On the final day I played in the Kids & Parents match which was a lot fun but very hard on my legs and lungs.

The Juniorette really wants to go the 1.FFC Frankfurt School again in the summer, so we have already registered her, as several of the kids attending this time had already done so. In fact we noticed this time that there were more girls attending from further away. One girl and her family had driven from East Germany and were living in a mobile home in the car park. I guess this is a measure of how good this training camp is. In the future, if the demand is there, they may offer an overnight accommodation facility, which of course the Juniorette is totally up for.

Picture above shows the Juniorette (foreground) during a dribbling exercise, and the one below is the group photo. Ten points to the person that can spot the Juniorette!

As normal, click pictures to enlarge.

Congratulations Juniorette! I think i's great that she's taking part in so many activities. Isn't she the one in the arms of the rainer? (center)
I hope she can make it to the next training.

It looks like a strong wind has blown them all over!
Hooray to the Juniorette.... and perhaps Dad should attend Soccer Camp too, for the sake of his legs and lungs???

CanadianSwiss - You are right! the Juniorette is in the arms of Louise Hansen. 10 points for you, you are top of the class! :)

Maribeth - She loves her football! :)

Ex-Shammickite - I wish they had these soccer camps when I was a kid. I would have been in footy heaven! :)

Ungh! Just watching them play tires me out.

Yes, I'm THAT lazy. :p

Thanks for stopping by Haddock.
You know? That name sounds a little fishy to me. You related to the Herring Family?

Oh! Bad!
