The Grenada Football Association is continuing to make a tremendous investment in ensuring that the National team is prepared for the CONCACAF U17 Women’s Championship by facilitating camp sessions every weekend.
Last weekend, apart from tactical sessions and practice matches, the girls and technical staff were treated to 2 special sessions to step up preparations.
Team physician, Dr Sonia Johnson, facilitated a session on nutrition and injury prevention and management which are top priorities for the Association. One of the main talking points for injury management was the RICE method which involves Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
The girls listened keenly and were able to answer questions posed by Dr Johnson. The GFA’s Communications Officer, Ria Murray, also facilitated a session on how to engage the media and be confident in front of the camera. The topics she covered included being prepared, proper posture and thinking on one’s feet.
While the girls were shy at first, they quickly began gaining confidence as they had to stand in front of their teammates and answer questions. More sessions are planned in an effort to prepare the girls not only for the CONCACAF U17 Women’s Championship, (3 to 13 March) but also future opportunities.
