Girls Soccer Training with Melbourne Victory
On the 4th of May, our Junior and Intermediate Girls soccer team were very fortunate to have a training session run by Gulcan, Mindy and Kathy from the Melbourne Victory Football Club. Gulcan Koca and Mindy Barbieri are both footballers from the Melbourne Victory Women’s team with both having represented Turkey and Australia at an international level respectively.
The after school training session saw them participate in fun and exciting drills as well as basic tactical awareness of the game. Gulcan Koca also spoke to the girls in achieving anything they set their minds to. Mindy Barbieri, aged 16, also shared her experiences in representing the ‘Young Matildas’.
We would like to thank Gulcan, Mindy and Kathy for coming into Strathmore Secondary College and running the training session. The trio will be back again for another session next Thursday.
