Fall Season of All-Girls League kicks off Saturday

Guam Football Association is inviting all girls to participate in the fall season of the 2014 GFA & The Score’s “Just Kick It” All-Girls League beginning Saturday at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

“With the all-girls league, I like the fact that it’s just for us girls – we can learn how to work together as a team better,” said Samantha Kenney, who has played in past editions of the league. “It’s also good to meet players from other clubs that we don’t usually play with, since the coaches mix the teams.

“For this upcoming league, I hope we’ll have more matches to play than last time,” added the 10-year-old Harvest Christian Academy student.

All-Girls league players ready for youth league

It’s for the love of the sport that keeps players coming back to play in all available leagues, and the Guam Football Association & The Score’s “Just Kick It” All-Girls League is no different.

“I’ve been playing in the All-Girls and youth leagues since I was in kindergarten – three seasons each,” said Maya Camou, an 8-year-old student at Tamuning Elementary School. “For the All-Girls league, I enjoy it a lot because it’s fun and I really like playing soccer. The youth league is harder, but I’m still excited to start playing in it next.

“My grandpa and my mom wanted me to join soccer and after I first started playing, I knew I really liked it. I hope more kids join soccer, too,” added Camou, who will be in a yellow and blue jersey with one of Community First Dededo Soccer Club teams in the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League beginning Sept. 13.

The U17 and U14 divisions of Guam Football Association and The Score’s “Just Kick It” All Girls League officially kicked off this past weekend at the GFA National Training Center.

The Knights, new to the U17 division of the league, includes a mix of experienced national team players and new players, coached by husband-wife tandem Ryan and Kyung Shipman, with the latter as head coach.

“We entered a team in the All-Girls League to give an opportunity to new players or players who only play in the interscholastic league to gain more match experience, while also introducing those players to outside leagues that’ll keep them playing year-round,” said Knights assistant coach Ryan Shipman. “Through the All-Girls League, players are able to apply skills and tactics we practice during training sessions and make some basic improvements in technique, positioning, and team play.”
