The first ever IFCPF Female CP-Football Development Camp & Competition at Sant Cugat, Barcelona, Spain from 8-11 August 2018 was an amazing experience for staff and players!
The four days of training and competition where filled with challenging technical exercises, tactical sessions and inspiring workshops. Also the first ever Female CP-Football match was played between a mix of the 2 Japanese, 2 Dutch and 9 Catalan girls! The Camp was also an inspiring event for a small delegation of the IFCPF Female CP-Football Development Group, who will continue to give strategic advice to the IFCPF on the international development of Female CP-Football.
You could see that everyone, including myself, was having so much fun during the camp. Everyone really tried their best and that is important. Also the staff members were so enthusiastic! We communicated with each other in different languages, what helped a lot to create a safe and fun atmosphere. We would love to have another international Female CP-Football Development Camp next year. I am already excited to participate again!– Luzdary van Wanum
I loved to meet the other ladies. I had a great time, despite that I could not always understand what everyone was saying. We could easily play football together, although we had never met before. It just clicked! I hope I can participate again next time!– Charlien Suares
For me the camp was amazing, because the girls can now play together just like the boys can. It was the perfect start for Female CP-Football and I hope that the others will be at the camp again next year. I think CP-Football can still grow a lot!– Susana Pérez
