The football summer season is synonymous with tournaments and festivals. Events filled with players, teams, and spectators. Young children are full of excitement, geared up to show their skills and teamwork to their parents and family members.

Perform Soccer School held its first Soccer Summer Festival on Saturday 3rd July at St Helens School in Northwood. More than 70 young girls (5-14 years) had signed up to round up a season filled with learning and building foundation skills, displaying results of hard work.

Both 7-aside Astro pitches at the venue were occupied with plenty of game time for all participants. Girls from Saturday and Sunday training sessions were placed in mixed teams in their respective age groups furnishing them with the opportunity to play in a set of group fixtures. The games throughout the day were balanced providing great entertainment for the family members, attracting cheers, roars and enjoyment overall.

Whilst the festival was non-competitive, we could sense and see the competitive spirit displayed through some individual highlights combined with great teamwork. Attending in various Premier League kits as well as England tops in preparation for last sixteen Euros game, all participants were winners of this festival rewarded with a medal at the end.

Perform appreciates and welcomes all the great feedback and comments from the parents which we received whilst recovering from the morning over a cup of tea.
“Excellent tournament today! You guys did a smashing job, the football, organising and general feel had a great vibe to it. I spoke to many parents who said the same. This is a new feeling for our girls so thank you to you and your team.”

“Thank you, my daughter had a fantastic time today. Was lovely to see the girls play and display excellent sportsmanship.”

“Congrats on the tournament. Was a great success and my daughter was very proud of her medal!”

“Thank you, my daughter had an amazing time, it was a wonderful morning”

“Thanks, Mo and well done to you and the team for setting up and getting Perform to where you have in such a short space of time”

Despite a season filled with uncertainty, the energy and determination the young girls have exhibited are truly admirable. Perform Soccer School has provided the young girls with a platform and opportunity to learn the game of football under a structured and organised format with the players embracing learning in a truly inspirational manner.

The Perform coaches were pleased to watch the progress and development showcased at the festival, clearly demonstrating their students are heading in the right direction.

Hussein Pirbhai (Director of Football): “It was a fantastic day and a great way to end the season. All the hard work and energy that the players and coaches have put in through the year was there for all to see. The development in all the players and the ability to start working in teams, their understanding of the game was really something they should all be proud of. Would like to also thanks to all the coaches and parents for being part of the Perform team and helping guide these players this season and looking forward to the new season.

Samir Sawhney (Head of Coaching): “To round off our first year supporting the fantastic families and girls at @performsoccerschool this morning was another first, with an u6s, u9s and u13s series of mini-matches delivered by our coaching team. Superb feeling to have got this far in spite of our necessary pauses due to the pandemic, and it was lovely to see parents enjoying the games and seeing how far their ballers have come!!”

Holiday sessions to come too, but for now, we will be taking a break on weekends to review and come back even stronger on 21/22.
