Chorley School Sports Partnership is proud to be a part of the FA's new initiative to inspire girls to get active and learn the fundamentals of football.
The FA’s Shooting Stars programme has launched in primary schools across England. CSSP will be hosting workshops available to book using our "upcoming events" portal on our home page.
Inspired by Disney storytelling and produced in collaboration with the Youth Sport Trust and the National Literacy Trust, Shooting Stars takes the form of two programmes: The FA’s Shooting Stars Active Play Through Storytelling inspired by Disney and The FA’s Shooting Stars Girls’ Football Club inspired by Disney.
Using storytelling from Disney and Pixar’s 2018 superhero movie Incredibles 2 and the 1992 animated version of Disney’s Aladdin, ‘Active Play Through Storytelling inspired by Disney’ aims to capture Key Stage 1 girls’ imaginations while developing their fundamental movement and speaking and listening skills. Developed in partnership with the National Literacy Trust, these sessions also provide the opportunity to achieve the learning objectives which are based on the national curriculum for Key Stage 1 English and PE.
‘Shooting Stars Girls’ Football Club inspired by Disney’ is targeted at girls in Key Stage 2 and uses the storytelling inspiration of the animated Disney TV series Guardians of the Galaxy to advance their journey into a girls-only after school club, where they will learn basic footballing skills while engaging in imaginative play.
The FA’s Shooting Stars initiative is available in over 1,200 primary schools in the first year but the ambition is to increase this number year-on-year. It is an integral part of The FA’s ‘Gameplan for Growth’ strategy which aims to double female football participation by 2020.
