Essex FA are excited to announce the upcoming webinar: Supporting Players Through Their Periods
We aim to support everyone in football (players, coaches, club officials or parents/carers) to start the conversation and understand the menstrual cycle/periods.
Our first free online interactive webinar will take place on Thursday 9th February 7:30-9:00pm. This will be led by the team at Irise and Dr Sarah Zipp from Power to Play. This session will explore:
- Barriers periods can pose to young people taking part in sport and how to overcome them
- Understanding the menstrual cycle and how it can impact performance and training
- How to support players through the menstrual cycle
Have you thought about how periods are affecting players at your club?
“64% of girls have left sport by the time they finish puberty” - The Always Confidence & Puberty Wave IV Study
“39% of girls say that their periods stop them from doing PE at school and 24% say their periods stop them from taking part in sport outside of school” - Betty for Schools 2017
Who are Irise?
Irise is a Sheffield based charity working to end period poverty, inequality and shame, by supporting communities to take action to build a world where having a female body is not a disadvantage.
How can I access more support?
The team at Irise are available to provide advice on creating a period friendly environment for any clubs who are interested. Feel free to contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org and they'll do what they can to help.
