Give Sectarianism the Boot (GSTB) Project

The GSTB Project funded under The Executive Office’s Central Good Relations Fund 2017/18 will utilise cross-community football coaching sessions with 6 women’s football clubs.

It will reach 60 young women in various areas by involving them in IFA standard football training increasing inter-community contact as well as various other activities outside of traditional male led youth club activities.

The  project will also offer good relations training to participants through less conventional means by engaging with the young women around areas of interest adding to their engagement and retention on the programme.

The culmination of the Project will involve a 'Festival of Football' event where the 60 participants will come together to play in a football tournament as well as present what they have learnt/undertaken to spectators as well as the new friendships they have developed.
