Santa Cruz de Tenerife (EFE).- The Cabildo de Tenerife has presented this Tuesday an insular program for the promotion of women’s football, whose main objective is to work with players from different clubs between the ages of 9 and 15 and build “a football league ” exclusive to the collective.
With this initiative, called “Female Talent”, they will work “in small groups, every fortnight and independently of their colors” to put into practice “playing mixed women’s football”, explained the person in charge of the project, Santiago Lemus.
Access to the program, which will begin in April, will be free for young people with a federation record. However, the initiative will be open to any player, without the need to be federated and belong to a club.
Santiago Lemus, who was accompanied at the presentation by the Councilor for Sports of the Cabildo, Concepción Rivero, and the president of the Tenerife Inter-island Football Federation, Alejandro Morales, has estimated that, within a period of two to three years, there will be with a league for different categories, starting with the infantile and continuing with the cadet.
The program consists of a Women’s Soccer Department, which will include a team of nutritionists, sports psychologists and national coaches, among which María José Pérez stands out, a professional player and future coach of the project who, Alejandro Morales has emphasized, is “a reference for the federation”.
“Female Talent” will have a training school by levels, with bilingual aspirations, and cooperation work with the clubs on the island. The meetings will begin this week. EFE
