The recent call up to the national women’s team came as quite a surprise for Jodi-Ann Thomas. With most senior players suffering from a lack of inactivity due to the absence of a league last year, the former UWI Women’s FC player had not kicked a ball in anger for quite a while.

Twenty five coaches, including nine females, completed a one week course focused on preparing female football players, at the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Technical training centre recently.

The participants were treated to five intense days of hands on coaching where they had the opportunity to work with the Jamaica Under-15 and Senior Reggae Girlz. Both teams are preparing for competitions next month so it came in as ideal training sessions for them.
