The SWF Summer activities challenge gives young players the chance to win Scotland tickets
We are aware that for our young players the summer break can feel like a long time without football!
That’s why Scottish Women’s Football has created a summer challenge with a range of 20 activities for youth players to try out, with the added incentive of being placed into a draw to win tickets to see the SWNT for their whole team!
Some are physical or artistic challenges, some are more humorous and link in with this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, which is fast approaching!
To enter the prize draw, we encourage youngsters or clubs to send in videos, artwork and designs, or post pictures and videos online using the #swfsummerchallenge hashtag of the 20 activities listed below.
What’s more, there is every chance that the increased visibility of the World Cup will attract more girls to take up football so now is a good time for clubs to take stock of how they are positioned to welcome new players looking to take part in our sport.
Here are the 20 #SWFSummerChallenge activities:
