The FutboLISTAS Method aims to teach girls English and life skills in a non-traditional, fun way: through soccer and mentorship.
During every practice: we start with a discussion, in English, about one or two life skills; we illustrate these life skills through soccer drills; and we assign short homework assignments that allow the girls to continue to think about how they can apply these life skills to their daily life. At the end of each month, we arrange conversations with professional women in Spain who explain how these life skills have had an impact on their careers.
FutboLISTAS works to improve both the physical and the mental health of our girls. Our curriculum uses original activities mixed with other activities from GoGirlGo! (the Women's Sports Foundation) and How to Coach Kids (The U.S. Olympic Committee, Nike, and the Aspen Institute's Project Play).
FutboLISTAS focuses on developing our girls' confidence in many different ways - confidence in themselves, in their teammates and coaches, in their contributions to the team, and in their abilities to achieve their professional dreams. We measure confidence levels before and after each season through surveys.
FutboLISTAS seeks to provide continous development to our girls. According to a study completed by Ernst & Young and ESPN W, out of 400 global women surveyed, 74% say a background in sports can help accelerate a woman's career. Our curriculum teaches girls to play soccer, about the skills learned through the sport, and how to apply the skills to their live and careers.
We offer four season per year, each with 20 hours of instruction, so that girls can continue learning and developing throughout the year.
FALL (September-November) or SPRING (February-April)
10 weeks - 2 hours of instruction per week (20 hours total)
SUMMER 1 and SUMMER 2 (both in July):
1 intensive week - Monday through Friday, 4 hours of instruction per day (20 hours total)
We are launching a pilot of the program in the Fall of 2019. For more information about how to sign up, dates, pricing, etc. contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
