SINGAPORE - The Football Association of Singapore has announced that a third Fifa "Live Your Goals" (LYG) centre will open at 3pm this Friday at Coral Primary School. This follows the launch of the LYG campaign at Queensway Secondary School and Bowen Secondary School in May.

Targeted at girls from the school aged between six and 12 years, the LYG centre at Coral Primary aims to inspire and keep them interested in the game. Talented girls will also be scouted through the LYG programme to strengthen the Under-14, U-16 and U-19 women's national teams. Following this Friday's launch, LYG sessions will continue to be held every Friday from 3-4.30pm at Coral Primary School.

Girls who are interested in the LYG programme but not students of Coral Primary can join the centres at Queensway Secondary and Bowen Secondary, which are open to all girls aged six to 15.

These sessions are free of charge, and participants should attend in sports attire and football boots or running/turf shoes. On-site registration is available, but interested parties are encouraged to register earlier by writing in to women_football@fas.org.sg to secure available slots.
