Young footballers all have the same dream of reaching the top. Both boys and girls. Yet often boys play in a boys’ team and girls in a girls’ team, which is illogical according to football coach Mary Kok-Willemsen.
The former FC Twente women’s coach thinks that they can learn a lot from each other. That is why everyone trains together at her FootballEquals Foundation in Enschede. Based on skill instead of gender, also known as gender equality. The football academy combines professional football training programs with unique physical research methods, in collaboration with research institutes and high-tech companies. (Source: RTV Oost)
