We recently announced that the SSP has joined the national FA Girls Football School Partnership
programme. We are excited to share details with you about the Game of Our Own
training that has been organised for you during the Autumn Term. As your schools are part of our partnership, access to the programme is completely FREE.
What is Game of Our Own? (GOOO)
Using football as the vehicle, Game of Our Own
is a programme to support secondary schools to explore how to engage girls in curriculum PE through an innovative life skills approach. The programme also has a leadership element designed to recruit and support girls to deliver peer led and designed extra-curricular football opportunities to other girls in the school, as well as some really good digital resources and video. To find out more about the programme and the benefits to your school, check out the GOOO programme guide
In year one of the programme, schools can access the Game of Our Own – Teacher
training course. The training is blended approach, with virtual training during the Autumn Term followed by face-to-face training later in the academic year. All sessions are delivered by YST tutors and FA PE team staff.
Each school who attends the training will receive physical resource cards, which link to digital content and on completion of the course teachers also receive an equipment pack including Nike balls, bibs and cones.
